'Territories brings together architects and artists in an exhibition about politics, architecture and geography. As the title of the exhibition implies, a number of projects are presented dealing with the occupation, control and defence of space. The exhibition speaks less about the cultural meaning of land use, housing and cultivation, but rather explores the strategic use of architecture and planning in times of crisis and conflict, bearing witness to the increasing fragmentation and militarization of the global political landscape... Territories is a cross disciplinary exhibition where architects and artists jointly focus on subject fields which with the passage of time are becoming more and more relevant. The project examines and calls into question the ruling state of affairs in a world that cannot be thought of any longer as composed of separated independent entities.' - from the press release.
