Consider this quote by Foucault,
“The conditions under which an object of discourse may appear, the historical conditions which make it possible to “say something about it” and for many people to say different things about it, the conditions under which such a thing inscribes itself into a network of relations with other objects, so that it can establish with them relations of resemblance, nearness, distance, difference, transformation– these conditions, as is clear, are numerous and imposing. All of which means that one cannot simply talk about any old thing in any old time period; it is not easy to say something new; it is not enough just to open one’s eyes, to pay attention, or to become aware so that new objects light up and emerge from the surface of the ground in their first clarity.”
First of all, who was Michel Foucault and what was his relationship with history? What do you think he means here, in relation to the readings that were assigned for this week? What do you think that it might require of you to be an active participant in the discourse of history? Imagine why you might need to account for the slippages of the historical “record” in architectural practice. Can you imagine systemic ways in which certain voices or bodies have been excluded from histories, conversations, communities, and architecture and how this may have shaped our present views of the past? For a historical record to truly be active, how can we start to amend it to account for both what was originally said, as well as any corrections that might need to be made? How do you think you might be able to better open yourself to more nuanced understandings of the past?
Responses should be thoughtful, well-articulated, grammatically correct, no less than 350-words, and all citations need to be in Chicago Manual of Style with endnotes or footnotes. (Chicago Manual of Style, 17th ed. LINK (Links to an external site.) and ASU writing center video below. Please use no less than two citations from different sources in your response. You may include photographs, diagrams, or sketches in order to demonstrate and clarify your points. In order for your response to be considered for points, you must also respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts in relevant and critical ways in order to demonstrate consideration of the texts and the views of others.
