Jaume Prat – Motion Frames from the Edge of a Discipline

Last night our guest lecturer Jaume Prat Ortells, invited as part of the Fall Lecture Series 2016, inspired the audience with his lecture: Motion Frames from the Edge of a Discipline.

Jaume described the process of creation of Aftermath – Architecture beyond Architects, the Catalan Pavilion at the 2016 Venice Biennale of Architecture co-curated with the architect Jelena Prokopljević and the filmmaker Isaki Lacuesta.

Jaume has first examined the construction of the narrative behind the project, a narrative based on a reflection on what constitutes Catalan architecture, how it is self-presented, and how to represent it through the exhibition of seven selected projects able to explain the past and a certain way of practising public architecture.

The second part of the talk has focused on the pavilion: an installation building a space and a narrative, and representing the projects by means of the union of cinema and architecture, with a focus on sensation rather than thought, on the relation between the two arts and what they have given each other along their history.
