Léopold Lambert: The Funambulist
The exhibition, opening at MAO at 18.00 on 28 OCT, presents the covers of the bimestrial printed and digital magazine that examines the political relationship between the built environment and bodies.
The Funambulist is a bimestrial printed and digital magazine complemented with a blog and a podcast edited by Léopold Lambert. The three platforms of The Funambulist examine the political relationship between the built environment and bodies. Its subtitle, Politics of Space and Bodies, expresses it ambition to bridge the world of design (architecture, urbanism, industrial and fashion design) with the world of the humanities (philosophy, anthropology, history, geography, etc.).
The five first issues of the magazine are respectively dedicated to Militarized Cities, Suburban Geographies, Clothing Politics, Carceral Environments, and Design & Racism.
Léopold Lambert is a Paris-based architect. He is the editor-in-chief of The Funambulist and is the author of several books about the political relationship of architecture and bodies.
The exhibition is a part of Design Biotop 2016 and is on display at Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO), Ljubljana.
