Together and Apart looks at apartment buildings in relation to architecture’s role in organizing society. On the one hand, the individual apartment offers isolation from the outside world; while on the other hand, it implies interdependence within larger structures such as building elements, utility infrastructures, or governing frameworks. The exhibition examines how apartment buildings generate ways of living together and apart – with and from one another, the market, and the state. Divided into four sections, the exhibition explores socioeconomic transformations in relation to apartment buildings: Distance portrays proximities between individual spheres that emerge as a consequence of demographic shifts; Promise looks at the apartment building as a political project; Heat explores the relation between energy consumption, geopolitics, and collective decision making; Self deals with the apartment as a subject of private property, and the limitations of it.
