Philosopher Jacques Rancière and architect Farshid Moussavi RA discuss aesthetics, politics and architecture.

This event is part of a series of conversations between philosophers and architects which examine the relationship between architecture, politics, the environment and gender.

For the second conversation in the ‘Aesthetics and Architecture’ series, philosopher Jacques Rancière will be joined by architect Farshid Moussavi RA to discuss aesthetics and architecture, and their connection with space and politics.

Jacques Rancière is Professor of Philosophy at The European Graduate School and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the Université de Paris VIII. He is one of the most significant and influential philosophers of our time. His work has widely examined the articulation of politics and aesthetics.

Joining him is Farshid Moussavi OBE RA, Architect, principal of Farshid Moussavi Architecture (FMA) and Professor in Practice of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design and Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy Schools. She has published three books, The Function of Ornament (2006), The Function of Form (2009), and The Function of Style (2015).
