Berta Gutiérrez Casaos

Copenhagen, Denmark
Berta Gutiérrez is a Spanish architect and researcher. For Berta, architecture and design are catalyzers of new knowledge production experiences. In her practice, she uses design as a transversal process of participation and creation, in constant dialogue with other disciplines, such as contemporary art and pedagogy. Berta has extensive experience with research and artistic production working in institutions such as Medialab-Prado, the Polytechnic University of Madrid and Matadero Madrid.

Crater


On Liminal Spaces

Crater


On Liminal Spaces
An actualization of contemporary systems of knowledge production from a perspective of expanded learning. From local to global, from the human to the non-human, from individuality to the collective. Only by operating through this crack will we be capable to capture the subject we are looking for.

  • Systemic changes

In this constant and profound questioning of the world around us, the exercise of repeatedly transforming the reference systems attributed to the spaces constitutes a primal strategy that will lead us in the process of inhabiting fissures within territories and articulating compasses. Thus, we should aim at creating spaces for the collective production of knowledge, for the interaction between different agents from an experimental perspective, and to generate an awareness and a sense of common responsibility from this praxis, designing compasses that allow us to find substantial coordinates for the development of life and open up margins in order to absorb multiplicity. What would happen if we had new academia full of speculators? These new processes are grouped in CRATER under four areas and organized according to voluble associations determined by the qualitative characteristics. The processes are divided into four space categories: productive, domestic, public and apparatuses.


Both in its discourse and its practice, Crater seeks to develop narratives that enable us to read the contemporary world, helping to generate transitions between modern structures and the forthcoming present through speculation. It is an ongoing quest for finding ways to inhabit the uncertain, the indescribable or the unexpected, still ineffable or yet to come.
