Montagsreihe Digital

MONTAGSREIHE is a lecture series at the Department of Architecture at TU München. The series contributes to a public discussion about architecture between professionals, students and friends of architecture. (more)

Due to the pandemic, the lecture cycle Montagsreihe will move from the halls of the TU Munich into digital space.

This also changes the format of the series. On several Monday evenings, starting on November 23, 2020 at 7:30 pm a digital event will take place, thus creating a digital place for international and national discourse, with which the Faculty of Architecture of the TUM will present itself to the "outside world".

You can find the individual link for each Zoom event down below. A registration at Zoom is required. Stay tuned - more events will follow during the semester.

Die Pandemie hat uns schmerzlich bewusst gemacht, wie angewiesen wir aufeinander sind. Wie nah wir uns sein wollen und wie entfernt wir sein sollen. Die Distanz beschreibt eine emotionale, räumliche oder soziale Entfernung zwischen Menschen, von Menschen zu Dingen oder von Menschen zu Inhalten. Die soziale Distanz beschreibt das differenzierte Verhalten zweier Akteure zueinander. Nähe und Distanz sind konstituierende Merkmale von Raum. Wie definieren, gestalten und nutzen wir den Raum um notwendige und gewünschte Nähen und Distanzen zu ermöglichen?
