Armory Center for the Arts

The Winter Office, an artistic and professional work group of artists, curators, architects, designers, and social scientists with ties to Copenhagen, Denmark, presents new works that engage the challenges facing Southern California – including rising housing inequality, economic displacement, house-lessness, and environmental disaster. Conceived of as a collection of thought provoking vignettes, Non-Perfect Dwelling brings together wildly different time scales and references, including comic book anti-hero Bizarro, ancient ammonite fossils, futuristic holograms, and an operational podcast studio, to create an environment where urgent approaches to dwelling and cohabitation can be imagined and planned.
