After Belonging (2016)
The Objects, Spaces and Territories of the Ways We Stay in Transit
Arjun Appadurai, Keller Easterling, Didier Fassin, Michel Feher, Tomhas Keenan, Felicity D. Scott, and Mabel O. Wilson, among others.

After Belonging examines the objects, spaces and territories of our transforming condition of belonging. The global circulation of people, information and goods has destabilized what we understand by residence, questioning spatial permanence, property and identity—a crisis of belonging. Movement and exchange bring greater accessibility to ever-new commodities and further geographies. However, simultaneously, circulation also promotes growing inequalities for large groups who are kept in precarious states of transit. After Belonging is a thorough analysis of the evolution of global landscapes and societies and considers questions and issues surrounding our ever-changing sense of belonging. The book examines both our attachment to places and collectivities as well as our relation to the objects we produce, own, share and exchange. It analyzes the architectures entangled in these definitions through a selection of projects, texts and case studies. The publication is the result of the work and research leading up to Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 and is the official publication of the triennial.

 

Bio After Belonging Agency is a group of architects, curators and scholars based in New York and Rotterdam composed by Lluís Alexandre Casano­vas Blanco, Ignacio González Galán, Carlos Mínguez Carrasco, Alejandra Navarrete Llopis, and Marina Otero Verzier. The team came together specifically for the 2016 Oslo Architecture Triennale, around common interests and a shared concern in identifying the architectures at stake in contemporary forms of being together, with its associated spatial configura­tions, aesthetic agendas, furnishings, territories and technologies.
