Ambiguous Standards Institute: A Travelling Exhibition

18 January – 11 February

12-2 pm (weekdays only)

Free Entry

Istanbul architect and designer Cansu Cürgen (b. 1988) and Avşar Gürpınar (b. 1982), founded the Ambiguous Standards Institute (ASI) in 2014 to investigate how standards develop, and their impact on daily life. Through their investigations, ASI reveals the latent or invisible networks of standards—codes, quantities, or qualities—embedded in the objects and interactions that we use on a daily basis, ranging from birth control pill packets and carry-on bags to hand gestures, kitchen utensils, and objects used during public protests.

The Institute originated in Istanbul (TR) and has travelled to Arles (FR), Genk (BEL), Jerusalem (ISR) and Chicago (USA) before arriving at Loughborough, the UK.

There will be a public lecture to launch the opening of Ambiguous Standards at 4-5pm on 18 Jan, more info here : https://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/ias/events/2022/january/professorselcukartut-researchseminar/
