It will focus on the nature of architectural ruins in Detroit, comparing them to the ancient ruins, and trying to answer the question of everlasting ruin fascination which is nowadays often called ruinporn. Why do we still, in the most progressive present tense, have such a big lust for ruins? What emotions ruins provoke in us and how is this aestheticization of misery serving art and design?TutorsVivien PhilizotFileDownload file
