Counting the uncounted: Combining crowd and open source intelligence to report civilians deaths in war. The lecture will explore how recent wars, in particular the international fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, are being extensively documented by civilians, militants and state militaries via social media. Taking Airwars' recent collaboration with Amnesty International as our focus, we will discuss how social media is being used to track civilian deaths in Iraq and Syria, combining remote monitoring with crowdsourcing and field investigations.

As part of Het Nieuwe Instituut’s research on burn-out and exhausted bodies, this series investigates how voice, oral histories, and collective, embodied listening, could be deployed as a counterbalance of the pervasiveness of the image and the growing pressure to put bodies on display. For this first event, Professor of anthropology Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing will read, by means of an audio piece, her work The Mushroom at the End of the World.

A practical introduction to combining crowd and open source intelligence to report civilians deaths in war by working with open sources methods and materials. The focus will be the recent investigation by Airwars and Amnesty into civilian harm during the battle to retake Raqqa from the so-called Islamic State. We will look into social media as a source of reporting, try out geolocation and satellite image analysis all via public platforms. In the afternoon session we will experiment with the different ways (structural, visual, textual etc.) the body of research can be mobilised to tell new stories.

Are existing interaction environments inclusive and diverse enough? Are innovation hubs open platforms of knowledge exchange or the gatekeepers of intellectual property? Which spatial ecosystems link knowledge production to other economic sectors such as agriculture, manufacture and logistics?

Beyond the Cover approaches buildings as materialisation of a set of regulations, investments, and policies, making visible the political, economical and social relations constructed architecture embodies. Starting from a single building that flaunted on the cover of the Architecture in the Netherlands yearbooks between 1990 and 2000, the series explores how the shifts experienced in this era—including the deregulation and privatisation of the housing market—have directly shaped the conditions of contemporary practice of architecture. The first iteration, together with invited guests Frits van Dongen, Mariet Schoenmakers will use housing block The Whale as lens to explore what happened to housing in the Netherlands, unpacking how the backstories of the 1990s still resonate beyond the covers today.

What do changing gender roles, practices and identities mean for the design workplace and for the construction of the built environment? The Center for the Advancement of Masculine Practices (CAMP) is an initiative by environmental psychologist Adeola Enigbokan and spatial strategist Gavan Blau to discuss decentering masculinity in architectural practice. Masculine practices are not limited to men. Rather, these have, historically, come to epitomize notions of leadership, assertiveness, strength, within the discipline and practice of architecture—stereotypes that, in turn, have manifested in androcentric, non-inclusive architectures.

How do you design a living space for someone who cannot indicate their specific housing needs or wishes? How can a safe and stable living environment be created for people with intellectual disabilities? This edition of Archive Explorations looks at various types of housing designed for this group in the State Archive for Dutch Architecture and Urban Planning.
