In the framework of the exhibition Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948-1980, opening at the Museum of Modern Art on July 15, architects represented in the exhibition will discuss their built work in the context of self-managed socialism. The panel speakers will reflect on how their architectural production was conditioned by the political, cultural, social, and economic conditions that prevailed in Yugoslavia during their respective careers — phenomena like the Non-Aligned Movement, the Yugoslav state’s mediatory role between the communist and capitalist blocs, anti-fascist memorial culture, consumerism, and a particularly expansive welfare state. Participating architects will also discuss points of convergence between the Yugoslav milieu and international architecture culture.
