Red Carnivals: The Rebellious Body of Architectural Pedagogy

Red Carnivals: The Rebellious Body of Architectural Pedagogy AbstractThis article examines carnivalesque activities as rebellious architectural pedagogies at two rural venues in Central and Eastern Europe between 1969 and 1990 – the Czech architectural commune “Školka” and the Serbian Village School for the Philosophy of Architecture. After the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, Školka, an outpost of the state architectural practice Sial, emerged in a village outside the city of Liberec. Its informal educational model integrated play and humor with international architectural influences of the 1960s. Further south, charismatic teacher and architect Bogdan Bogdanović opened in Popović the Village School for the Philosophy of Architecture, replacing curriculum with lectures, workshops and performances where actors often exchanged roles with its audience. Embodying Mikhail Bakhtin’s characterization of carnivals – free interaction, eccentric behavior, méssaliances and sacrilege – these schools embraced their rural contexts and medieval folk traditions to create new models of both architectural education and practice. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
