Lectures have been an essential medium for transmitting ideas in architecture. But once a presentation is over, voices and images recorded in old VHS tapes or DVDs, are forgotten. What does it mean to watch and listen to a person lecturing years ago, today? Relecture focused on the theoretical, conceptual and performative aspects of talks that have taken place in the last 30 years at the AA. By misplacing ourselves in time and space, we discussed all these aspects and experienced again a good old-fashioned lecture from the AA Archive.
