Tuesday, October 18, 2022
RKC 103, Bard College
Léopold Lambert is a Paris-based trained architect. He is the founding editor of The Funambulist, as well as the author of four books, including Weaponized Architecture: The Impossibility of Innocence (2012), Politics of Bulldozer: The Palestinian Ruin as an Israeli Project (fr 2016), and States of Emergency: A Spatial History of the French Colonial Continuum (2021).
In this intervention, Léopold will present some aspects of the politics of contents and production of the Funambulist, a print and online magazine published every two months since September 2015. Dedicated to the politics of space and bodies as well as the cultivation of internationalist solidarity between political struggles of the world, the magazine is organized in such a way that the ethics of what happens behind the scenes is as important as the ethics of the magazine’s contents. Léopold will also talk of his writing practice as complementary with this editorial daily endeavor.
