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, signifying a break with Soviet socialism. This permited more radical artistic and architectural practices than in other socialist countries. Sandra Uskokovic, a Professor at the University of Dubrovnik, looks at how this proved critical for a generation coming of age in the era of ideology-neutral pluralism.

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