NZIA City Talks: Socialist Heritage (POSTPONED)

16 March 2020

This event has now been postponed.

In the late 1940s, Yugoslavia developed its own brand of Socialism based on self-management.

This new political stance signified a break with typical Soviet Socialist (Realism) art and architecture, a situation that allowed greater radicalization of artistic practices in Yugoslavia than in other countries of real Socialism.

Sandra Uskokovic looks at how this discursive strategy and readjustment of identity politics have proven to be especially critical for the generation who is coming of age in the era of ideology-neutral pluralism.

Uskokovic is a Professor at the University of Dubrovnik.

City Talks is an ongoing series presented in partnership with the New Zealand Institute of Architects Wellington Branch. Followed by refreshments.
