Practicing Generosity: The Hospitality of Collective Space

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


muf are a collaborative practice of artists and architects based in London working on publicly funded projects for the public realm. Established in 1996 by three women (two architects and an artist) muf have remained a predominantly, but not exclusively, female practice and have worked continuously to question the boundaries of conventional practice and the limitations of architecture. Although rarely describing themselves as a collective, the studio has often been characterised as such, most often because of the slippery scope and political agenda of projects, which include socially engaged art practice, temporary events, research, writing, exhibitions, public space and buildings.
