On the occasion of the grand opening De Dépendance presents a public talk with Zamp Kelp, founding member of the group.
Haus-Rucker-Co’s radical practice in the late 1960s and 1970s encompassed the use of spectacular air-inflated environments, futuristic technological prosthetics, and dystopian urban interventions to provide their users with new, altered perspectives on their surroundings. Often intervening with existing built forms, their inflatable structures emerged from windows and materialized in parking lots, reanimating one’s perception of the city in unexpected ways.
In a 60-minute conversation between Kelp and architecture theorist Lara Schrijver we will present Haus-Rucker-Co’s larger body of work, and discuss its social significance and current relevance. With a ticket for the talk (€6,- or free for holders of a Museum Pass or Rotterdampas) it is possible to visit the exhibition before and/or after the event.
