Exhibition at MoMA

Yugoslav Brutality


Though hard to fit into the narratives of architectural modernity, or precisely as a consequence of it, the architecture of communist countries after World War ii has for a number of years now drawn the attention of several institutions and scholars. A proof is ‘Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1949-1980,’ an exhibition on view at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Through a selection of 400 displays it explores themes that include large-scale urbanization, commemorative monuments, and technological experimentation, focusing on the period 1948-1980, a time of intense construction in what was then Yugoslavia.
