Call for Papers: po·mo·stroika – Postmodern Theories, Practices and Histories in Central and Eastern Europe. Berlin, 17-19 May 2018

po·mo·stroika – Postmodern Theories, Practices and Histories in Central and Eastern Europe is a two-day event series in 17-19 May 2018, offering opportunity for both professional researchers, architecture enthusiasts and architects to present their work, and international audience to find out more about how the postmodern phenomena shaped our cities, society and consciousness. The main aim of the program is to create a forum and provide a platform for starting new discussions and breaking the mental barriers behind which the amazing heritage of this era and region is still hidden. Besides the 20-30 minutes long presentations, the event will be enhanced by film screening, workshops and other programmes. The event is organized by the Budapest-based Translations of Modernism (Transmodern) collective in partnership with the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin.
