Sinister Dialogues

Output Type:Other form of assessable output
Venue:Manchester School of Architecture

Sinister Dialogues is a research project, symposium and exhibition, led by Laura Sanderson, which considers how a destructive past can be negotiated though the reuse of buildings and structures which have, at some point, housed a sinister use. In the project, Laura bought together, interviewed and chaired conversations between Irish architect Sheila O'Donnell who worked on the Good Shepherd Laundry and Letterfrack Furniture College, German architect HG Merz who transformed the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in Berlin, architecture academic Margahrita Vanore from Venice School of Architecture who writes about Industrial Ruins, interior design academic Terry Meade who writes about violence and domestic space in Palestine, artist Abigail Reynolds who created a series of artworks for the Topophobia Exhibition in Liverpool and academic Sally Stone who writes on building reuse.
