DEAR is to be a hybrid between a collective connecting critical and social-political thinkers within desig&architecture and a physical/digital project space that enables them. DEAR is nomadic and decentralised, it doesn’t occupy a space of its own but claims various spaces where and when needed. DEAR aims to be a platform for experimentation and self-organising and provide a collective test-site for ideas. DEAR wants to be a place where practitioners and theorists interested in critical discourse – amateurs, students and professionals – get to meet, linger, explore, create and discuss. Dear is interested in exploring alternative ways to collaborate; the relation between public, private and the personal; publishing - putting ideas and putting oneself out there. In collaboration with Ibou Gueye.
