Form 3/2013

Reports from the ‘Ground Zero’ of the North and the missing Las Vegas – the editors of Form keep on raising the standards in this new issue of Form. Contributors include one of Sweden’s foremost photographers, Lars Tunbjörk and Mikael Olsson.

In the issue photographer Mikael Olsson contributes with a body of work from Las Vegas, taken over ten years ago. The photos tell a story of a past now. Las Vegas is a city of unsentimental pragmatism where the architecture is constantly changing, unrestrained by building laws or nostalgia. In an essay, Bo Madestrand writes about the city’s seductive and equally deceptive surface.

LECTURE VALAND ACADEMY



Architecture, photography, and the contemporary past.

More than any of the material traces left behind by the last two hundred years of historical change, architecture and photography contribute both to our contemporary skyline and to our image of the past. Their common history thus provides an indispensable background to every discussion of heritage.

To direct attention to this problem, the Valand Academy at the University of Gothenburg, the Department of Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology, and the Swedish Ernst Cassirer Society (SECS) arrange a 1½-day workshop around the topic “Architecture, photography, and the contemporary past” at the intersection between research in the humanities and the fine arts.
February 18–19, 2013. Place: the Glass House, Valand Academy, Göteborg.
