Adriana Cobo Corey, PhD student: Taste Untold/Story 1: Wash Out!


"Motivated by the fact that taste in architecture has been generally communicated through stylistic codes, my general thesis argues that the construction of architectural styles might have left alternative taste narratives under-explored. This inquiry into taste investigates the possibility to situate and create marginal practices within voids of taste; seeking to talk about taste in architecture by prioritising function, action and habit over form and style.

This presentation will focus on cleaning, a subject implicitly or explicitly present within both, modernist utopias and feminist performance practices throughout the twentieth century. Cleaning will be discussed here as a post-rational reflection on Wash Out! a series of performances devised for Granary Square, London 2015-16."
