  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

ATELIER VAN LIESHOUT (AVL) is the internationally recognized studio and workshop, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, of Dutch artist and designer JOEP VAN LIESHOUT. Initially working as a solo artist, Joep van Lieshout produced objects in bright coloured polyester -  the material that would become his trademark - since the early eighties. In 1995 he founded Atelier Van Lieshout, leading a group of like-minded individuals in his search for creative and aesthetic solutions. Atelier Van Lieshout produces objects that balance on the boundary between art, architecture and design, encompassing sculpture and installations, buildings and furniture, utopias and dystopias. Recurring themes in the work of AVL are power, politics and autarky, as well as a fascination for life, its creation and its end in death. With this body of work, both autonomous and commissioned, AVL has attained international recognition. Over the past 25 years, AVL has exhibited at and/or been acquired by major art institutions and collections worldwide. AVL also produces commissions for and collaborates with architects such as Rem Koolhaas/OMA and MVRDV.  

“Our most recent works reflect on the possible end of civilization as we know it. In our extremely advanced and complex society over-consumption and limited raw materials play a crucial role. Once supplies are exhausted society will see a harshening of relations between people and increased survival instinct, changes which will lead to an emergence of various new cultures in the near future. AVL wants to raise the question whether such radical changes, which are coupled with violence but which may also lead to a new improved society, are good or bad.

These ideas are reflected on in The New Tribal Labyrinth, a new project in which recurring themes like work organization, power structures and revolution are connected with the theme of autarky, a proposal for a new world order. The New Tribal Labyrinth envisages an alternative society, inhabited by an imaginary tribe. The new ‘Gesamtkunstwerk‘ focuses on the three main pillars of this tribal society, farming, industry and ritual objects.”


This lecture was made possible through a generous grant from the ANGELO DONGHIA FOUNDATION, which provides support for the advancement of education in the field of interior design and for the investigation and treatment of AIDS and its related diseases.

This lecture was organized by ARCHITECTURE/LANDSCAPE/INTERIORS, which offers a synthetic curriculum of the spatial design fields. For information about the lecture or department call 310.665.6867 or email ArchitectureLandscapeInteriors@otis.edu.
