Assignment 6

This is an individual assignment.
In the spirit of Wrights & Sites Mis-guide to Anywhere and in the spirit of Pinder’s pledge to “rediscover the spaces, situations and activities that constitute urban living” (Pinder, p. 395):
Make a mis-guide as if it were a page in a mis-guide to Aarhus.
Draw from your experiences from this course in order to figure out a mis-guide concept that contributes to a story of Communicating (in) Aarhus and of Aarhus as such.

For class on 22 April:
- read the few texts (see the semester plan)
- contemplate a concept for a mis-guide (bring it in writing) so that you can work on it in class
- bring a few pictures that could serve as illustrations
Let yourself inspire by the examples given in the Mis-guides made by Writes & Sites (find them here (generic mis-guide), here (Exeter, UK) and here (Courtauld, UK).
The full Mis-guide to Anywhere can be found in my mailbox in the kitchen/common room on the 1st floor in the main building. You are encouraged to go look in the book but please don't take it with you when you leave.

You do not have to have the full mis-guide ready for Wednesday's class as we will work on the conceptual frame in class. Consider, however, how it contributes to the overall theme of both the mis-guide concept and this course in total. Draw from your experiences from class in order to figure out a mis-guide concept that contributes to a story of Communicating (in) Aarhus and of Aarhus as such.
In the class of 22 April we will do a workshop based on your ideas for mis-guides to Aarhus and create an actual Mis-guide to Aarhus, which we will later layout and print as an actual publication it we feel like it. You will work in groups with your ideas but will each make an individual contribution.
