About this Event

Lincoln Creates Network

The Lincoln Creates Network (LCN) brings together and celebrates the breadth of critical and applied creative practices in Lincolnshire. The Lincoln Creates Network + Artist Talk series, is designed to support local creative professional development, peer learning and networking as well as critical conversation and debate. The programme creates space for local artists and creative practitioners to share opportunities, creative expertise and developments within their own work, as well as hear from nationally and internationally established artists who have been welcomed to the city.

ON/OFF

ON/OFF will respond to Mansions of the Future’s first season of activity in their final year, titled Urban Form: Social Architecture, Class and the Commons (Nov 2019 – March 2020) by presenting their understanding of the term ‘Social Architecture’. Established in 2012, ON/OFF are a collective of designers and architects working primarily with the city, exploring the potentials of public space as a site for questioning and re-imagining how we relate to one another and to our cities.

In 2018, ON/OFF published Comachines: Mobile Disruptive Architecture, a crowd-sourced guide to a range of self-initiated installations deployed in public space to enable new ways to ‘collaborate’ with the city. Taking examples from this ongoing project, ON/OFF will invite discussions on the role ephemeral and direct actions can play in establishing meaningful encounters and community.

ON/OFF is an interdisciplinary design studio based in Berlin. They realise projects that combine strategies from across fields and formats; including mobile structures, film and projection, building workshops and writing. The practice explores the in-betweens and overlaps of the urban experience to engage citizens in an immediate relationship with their environment. Experimenting with disparate technologies and tools, they aim to challenge conventional ideas of inhabiting and sharing space.
