Joke Post will give this lecture in the context of Corpo-real Intervention #7: Belonging: the Architectural Body. In this four-day workshop Corpo-real students work together with Joke Post, Johnny Schoofs and others on research into space, focusing on the relationship between the body and space and on figuring out new ways of how to get the most out of this relationship.
