2021.06.15. – TAZ’S INTERVIEW

"Mit Hilfe des architektonischen Versuchs der „Andersheit“ wollen wir versuchen, einen kollektiven Optimismus an die Stelle der gegenwärtigen Neurose treten zu lassen. Die Idee kam auf, als wir mit ArchitektInnen aus neun verschiedenen Ländern erstmals zusammensaßen und feststellten, dass die Verständigung untereinander recht einfach war, weil wir alle einen vergleichbaren Hintergrund haben, historische und soziale Erfahrungen teilen."

2021.06.11. – ARCHITECTURE SNOB

"The project’s strength lies in the critical revision of architecture created behind the Iron Curtain. What are we to gain from revisiting the past? Not only can we re-discover values that need to be preserved, but also work out practices that would allow for the adaptation, modification, and revitalisation of our modernist heritage. Contemporary interpretations of past traditions are a collection of possible spatial scenarios."

2021.05.31. – HYPE AND HYPER INTERVIEW

"The title and, at the same time, the concept, both allude to a kind of integration: we can find a common denominator for the heritage of the socialist-modernist era and the built heritage of the turn of the century or the era preceding it. We think if we started talking about this in a broader scope and exploring it from more angles, it would facilitate this process a lot."

Hype and Hyper's interview with the curators of Othernity about the past year, the background of the exhibition and the concept as well as their plans for the future. Read the full article here.

2021.05.10. – ARCHDAILY

"The Othernity for us is such a new, collaboration-based method, which helps us rethink our practice of heritage protection and, at the same time, it is such an architectural behaviour that can create a more responsible attitude towards profession and society."
