Ambiguous Standards Institute: A Travelling Exhibition

About this event

As part of our Open Programme, Professor Selçuk Artut will be giving a public lecture to launch the opening of an exhibition on Ambiguous Standards.

Dr Avşar Gürpinar from the School of Design and Creative Arts, together with Istanbul architect and designer, Cansu Cürgen, founded the Ambiguous Standards Institute (ASI) in 2014 to investigate how standards develop and their impact on daily life. ASI reveals the latent or invisible networks of standards - codes, quantities, or qualities - embedded in the objects and interactions that we use on a daily basis, ranging from birth control pill packets and carry-on bags to hand gestures, kitchen utensils, and objects used during public protests.
