I learned about Folke Köbberling’s work and teaching because I also teach at the Technical University in Brunswick, or TU-Braunschweig in German, where she is a professor. She leads the IAK - the Institute for architecture-related-art there. The institute is a bit hidden from the rest of the university, since it is located in the woods off-campus. This site gives professor Köbberling an interesting stage and plenty of space to experiment with her students, to collect materials, bring strategies of anti-consumerism into reality, and to think about mobility. Her work is unapologetic and exciting; ready to take on a post-growth or even de-growth future with disarming optimism. She is convinced about the richness of practice and aesthetics with all of the resources and materials we have right in front of us.
