The Institute of Patent Infringement
The Institute of Patent Infringement, a project that is part of the extended programme of WORK, BODY, LEISURE is programmed at the London Design Festival at the V&A.
The dubious world of intellectual property rights allows “Big Tech” multinationals to create a monopoly on ideas concerning automation. Focusing on the political dimension of labor, the Institute of Patent Infringement encourages architects to appropriate the frameworks under which these multinationals operate, and subvert their patent drawings, revealing a possible radical and emancipatory potential inherent in these technological regimes, as well as a space where architecture can play a role.
