IMAG-E-NATION the political & philosophical arts initiative blog


(re)imagining the political and philosophical in the 21st century


The Political & Philosophical Arts Initiative is interested in the ways in which people interact with and compose political and philosophical ideas and actions through the various, diverse media of technology and the arts. Participants in PAI seek to explore the ways in which poetry, literature, music, photography, performance and other creative arts interleave with the political and philosophical life, either as vehicles for criticism, elaboration, theorization, intervention or activism.
The Imag-e-nation blog is a forum for interested parties to share stories, images or other contributions. Contributors range from students and faculty to artists and musicians to professional and casual commentators. Pieces can be short opinions, re-postings of appropriate materials, or original compositions. In addition, the PAI at LUC will make a selection of relevant or provocative news items each week for (re)publication here.

Architecture for Peace and Justice: The Good Cause @ Stroom


9 March - 1 June 2014
Opening exhibition: Saturday 8 March, 5 pm, with an introductory program from 4 pm

Location: Stroom Den Haag, Hogewal 1-9, The Hague


Missions of war and missions of peace: both can have a devastating effect on the spatial and social condition of the city. Architecture of Peace is a long-term research project by the international think tank Archis, addressing the military, political and cultural complexity of rebuilding operations. Can architecture actively contribute to a sustainable peace in this field of conflict? The exhibition The Good Cause shows inspiring and hopeful examples in post-war areas in order to distill a number of ‘key success factors'. 

The Good Cause is part of the program See You in The Hague. As the International City of Peace and Justice the city of The Hague is an important player on the world stage. This not only affects the public image of The Hague all over the world, but also has a great impact on the city itself and on its inhabitants. The Good Cause shows the (in)visible imagery, structures, rules and mechanisms this identity brings and the impact it has on daily life in the city.
