In settler-colonial territories, such as Australia, climate change mitigation and adaptation infrastructures are built on stolen land. Contextualising these architectures within the coloniser myths and temporalities that precede them is thus critical work - whether for the spatial practitioners involved in their design or those agitating against their construction in the first place. This webinar is organised by the IABR in collaboration with Oskar Johanson (IABR Agent of Change, architectural designer, educator and writer). The event brings together spatial practitioners and researchers from Australia and presents a number of positions on land, being, occupation, time, the visual culture of catastrophe, and nationalist myth to better reveal the work that has already been done - and that which is yet to be.
