News: Jul 02, 2018

Henric Benesch, coordinator CCHS/Curating the City cluster, has been appointed pro-dean for the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts.

Benesch is a trained architect (Chalmers University of Technology) and acquired a PhD at the Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) in 2010, where he has been active as a researcher and teacher in Design. He has been active in a number of cross-disciplinary research projects in a national as well as a European context, where his areas of focus have been design and critical and institutional perspectives of participation and knowledge production.

Henric Benesch is one of the coordinators for the research cluster Curating the City which is part of the Centre for Critical Heritage Studies. This research cluster addresses the existing city from perspectives that arise from the notion of curating/the curatorial. The field of concern is situated at the crossroads of several overlapping research fields, such as architecture, conservation, craft, design, literature, history, cultural studies, planning and archaeology.

At the moment, the cluster focuses on two themes - one concerning the university as an actor with interest in urban development issues from a cultural heritage perspective. Within this theme, two international workshops have taken place and will result in an anthology. Parallel with this theme the cluster work on a more practice-oriented project about the meeting between cultural heritage practitioners and artistic practice focusing on site-specific and methodological issues. Within the frame of this theme the cluster is launching a series of workshops that will lead to projects and publications.
