Architecture of Deconstruction / The Specter of Jacques Derrida is a three-day, international scientific conference, organized by the University of Belgrade,Faculty of Architecture and the Center for Ethics, Law and Applied Philosophy (CELAP). The conference aims to draw attention to the question of borders between the disciplines of architecture and philosophy. Using the perspective of the relation between architectural theory and practice, which once aspired to be labeled deconstructivist, and the work of the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, the conference will be directed toward defining whether a new kind of an unease has emerged in the contemporary relations between the two disciplines.
With these questions in mind, we hope to reestablish the connections which influenced so strongly both architecture and philosophy in the last decades of the 20th century; and in doing so, open a possibility of their reevaluation in the circumstances which define our contemporary times.

We would like to invite You to come and listen to the lectures of our distinguished guests. They will analyze various aspects of the conference topics, and apply a range of different approaches to the issues of interdisciplinary cooperation. The conference will be held on the 25th, 26th and 27th of October, 2012.

We are looking forward to seeing You!
