FIELDWORK

This project is developed in collaboration with  students from different universities, usually from the departments of Urbanism or Architecture, and offers space to share and explore each other’s working methods. Students reflect on public space, through projects like The Roof and Strange Urban Folk Dances, allowing them to approach “fieldwork” from an unexpected angle. They explore our methods for data gathering; direct conversation with the participants, physical practices, spatial explorations, social games and public performances. As a response to this experience they provide new approaches and layers to our artistic research, such as maps, videos, and more formal reports.

 “The thing I’ve learned from MOHA is that urban planning can be analyzed partly intuitively and partly based on rationality. We’ve been learned to only research with factual maps and data. Discovering does not only have to be rational, the important aspect is to turn intuitive based knowledge into some form of rational thoughts for others to comprehend as actual facts and knowledge.“ Lisa - students at TU Eindhoven
