Abstract [en]

This exposition emerged in response to the question of how to engage critically with institutions via various methods of interruption. Al-Croquis is a parody of the mainstream architecture journal El-Croquis. It is a fictitious journal born from a proposal rejected by the editors of El-Croquis, but that nevertheless found a way to continue an institutional existence. This issue, dedicated to the prison, introduces Lieutenant Fontaine, the main character of Robert Bresson’s movie A Man Escaped, as a protagonist of interrupting architecture. Fontaine escapes from the Nazi’s Montluc prison, and his escape plan is investigated as a work of architecture, interrupting the institution of the prison. Appointing the role of architecture to a prisoner who escapes, and studying his applied tools and methods through the lens of architecture work, is a way to expand architecture beyond its disciplinary limits and to develop minor modes of architectural practice. In line with such an expansion, the issue also approaches the prison through various perspectives by means of critical and artistic contributions from guest contributors. 

The self-published journal of architecture, Al-Croquis, and a poster was exhibited at ArkDes exhibition space, as part of the Making Effect exhibition 14-17 September 2017.
