Mapping Relations of Funding and Knowledge
Füsun Türetken with Burak Arikan
While established funding structures that promote architectural, artistic, and scholarly work often remain invisible to the public eye outside of sponsorship acknowledgements, they determine research and knowledge production within contemporary Berlin. Whether or not the resultant adaptation to funding criteria on the part of applicants affects the content of the research, it is clear that between individuals and funding institutions there is a struggle for authority. Independent agents are put in competitions, excluded or included depending on their relationships, and are required to be accountable to the authorities that be. Further, institutions are connected to each other through a variety of interests from sponsorship relations to shared board members to social and professional relationships, all of which contribute to an organization's authority, as well as constitute a larger network of institutions that is itself a super-institution. Relationships that form super-institutions, thus their extra-authority, can be mapped as network diagrams in order to problematize the entanglement of knowledge and economic power structures. On a network map, actors naturally find their position through connecting forces, revealing the central actors, indirect links, organic clusters, structural holes, and outliers. During this workshop (in the context of a closed session with students from Learning Place) and panel we view how clusters of institutions on a map show the super-institutions that have high-power concentrations in neoliberal societies.
This collaborative work departs from previous works done separately by Füsun Türetken and Burak Arikan.

Architecture and Ideology II: How to intervene
Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin
Sat. 22.09.2012 18:00 Free admission
Ideologies leave their mark not just on certain forms of government and political systems (of thought). In fact, the values and convictions of a society follow the concrete structures of people's everyday lives. Buildings and roads, living and working quarters in a city influence not only milieu and habitus but also the attitudes and morals of their inhabitants. In three panel discussions, architects, city planners and curators address the multi-faceted relationships between architecture, ideology and art.
