Abstract:This publication documents three projects that were carried out by [Applied] Foreign Affairs, a laboratory of the Institute of Architecture of the University for Applied Arts in Vienna. The projects (a master plan for Guabuliga, an art space for Haduwa, art spaces for Kisangani) took place in Ghana and DR Congo between 2011 and 2015. The book illustrates the projects' creative processes and contexts, embedded in contemporary discourses with experts from architecture, art, theory, and urban sociology writing about and discussing the intrinsic topics at hand. The chapter 'Lubungamode - on other artistic research' is published in English and French. [ASC Leiden abstract]
