The GSD hosts an afternoon of conversations on the work of artist and GSD Professor in Residence, Krzysztof Wodiczko. Wodiczko will first be joined by architectural historian and GSD professor Erika Naginski for an exploration of architecture’s role in the construction and performance of memory, using Wodiczko’s work as a frame. After a short break, Wodiczko will return with art historian Rosalyn Deutsche. Deutsche and Wodiczko will discuss the role of trauma, healing, and survival in his work over the last five decades.
This program is supported by the Graham Gund Exhibition Fund and organized to accompany the exhibition Interrogative Design: Selected Works of Krzysztof Wodiczko, on view in the Druker Design Gallery and Frances Loeb Library from October 21, 2021 – February 20, 2022.

The exhibitions are made possible by the Graham Gund Exhibition Fund, held jointly by the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Harvard Art Museums.
