Om emnet

Centralteateret in Akergaten 38, Oslo is an internationally exceptional composite of theatrical architecture, and a cornucopia of time-specific expressions and ideas. Dating back to the late 18th century, its complex urban and architectural history of additions and transformation includes the work of prominent architects such as Jørgen Henrik Rawert, Herman Backer, Henrik Bull, and Jens Dunker. This first seminar in a series on Centralteateret will map the building history of this intriguing complex, spanning from its early ballrooms to the first façade in Oslo made to project moving images on.

Together with a series of studios and seminars over the coming semesters, this seminar is part of the research project Provenance Projected, and will result in an international book, exhibitions, and perhaps scenography. The series will be run in close collaboration with the theater itself. 

Due to the archival material, it is beneficial to have reading skills in Norwegian.

Læringsutbytte

Knowledge:

  • The course offers critical knowledge of architectural history and historiography, both buildings and biographical oeuvres. The students will be trained in conducting archival research, and in piecing together fragments from a variety of unpublished and published sources. The learnt research techniques are based on both documenting and translating archival information into other formats and media, such as drawings and scale models.

Skills:

  • The course is about conducting research, introducing students to archival studies, visual analysis, textual interpretation, and curatorial conceptualization.

General competence:

  • The aim is to turn students into confident researchers able to command, apply and present contemporary perspectives on a historical material.
Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

Weekly lectures/workshops, visits to Oslo archives, on site investigations, independent work, regular presentations of findings in the group, and to the students in the Transformation in Practice studio, also working on Centralteateret in the fall 2022.
