Imke Woelk, Trembling and amazement, ARCHITEKTURGALERIE AM WEISSENHOF
Imke Woelk recommends reconsidering the nature of human capabilities and placing the products shaped by wind, water and light on an equal footing with man-made work. She proposes to overcome the historiography of art, its temporal, object-related limitations and hierarchizations, and to start with a common cultural history that integrates the ecology of the planet.

Rome forms the foundation of a basic understanding of the identity and heritage of European architecture. Its ruinous monumentality* is still more visibly present today for the city, for architecture and art than perhaps in no other metropolis in Europe. As a thematic follow-up to the symposium „monumental_public buildings at the beginning of the 21st century“ 2019 at the Baukunstarchiv NRW, the theme of „fragmental_dissolution of public space“ at the 2022 symposium at the Villa Massimo in Rome examines the ambivalent identity of a monumental and simultaneously romantic understanding of space between the built environment and its dissolution, between architecture and the reconquest of space by nature. At a time when our relationship to the unbuilt, to the „natural“ is being radically questioned and the static role of architecture is beginning to falter, concepts such as dissolution and fragmentation seem to be taking on a new identity forming role in recent architectural development. But how does the relationship between architecture and the city develop? The symposium seeks to take up the concept of the „public“ within recent positions and to critically reflect on its relation to a classical-romantic understanding of architecture.

Every animal is more or less human, every mineral is more or less plant, every plant is more or less animal. There is no sharp demarcation in nature – Denis Diderot, ‘D’Alembert’s Dream‘ [written in 1769, published in 1830]

HYBRIDIZATION, Culture of Nature, Part 3
A contribution to the Debate of Life Resources
Video by Imke Woelk, 2021

The ocean covers over 70% of the planet. It is our life source, supporting humanity’s sustenance and that of every other organism on earth. The ocean produces at least 50% of the planet’s oxygen, it is home to most of earth’s biodiversity, and is the main source of protein for more than a billion people around the world. Not to mention, the ocean is key to our economy with an estimated 40 million people being employed by ocean-based industries by 2030. Even though all its benefits, the ocean is now in need of support. United Nations – World Oceans Day, 8 June 2021
