The Duck and the Document features a series of fragments, from handrails to façade panels, salvaged from canonic buildings of the late 20th century. Typically associated with drawing and the circulation of media images, postmodern architecture is generally understood to have been largely a matter of style and surface ornament, freed from the exigencies of political and technical systems by the force of architectural autonomy. The Duck and the Document challenges this view by embedding the expected imagery of postmodernity within materials that demonstrate the dense tangle of regulations, production specifications and technologies that constrained architectural design rather than liberated it. While these True Stories of Postmodern Procedures describe a less heroic and autonomous architect, they also produce a more persuasive account of architectural ingenuity as it sought to survive the bureaucratization not merely of the architectural profession but of the very idea of architecture
"Looking through identity formation to the effects of political, legal, and techno-scientific systems, how have architectural objects not only constructed singular subjects but proven intrinsic to variegated subjectivities and contemporary politics of the body?"
A display of historical student-run journals of the Harvard Graduate School of Design and an assemblage of current publications from around the world will set the stage for a series of conversations about PREMISE, MEDIUM, CONTENT, AUDIENCE, and DISCIPLINE.
