The VACANT MODERN: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF POST-WAR BUILDINGS IN CENTRAL EUROPE project investigates the changing destiny of post-war modernist architecture: the research demonstrates how the reception of post-war modern architecture in Central and Easter Europe fades into the memory of the state-socialism; how it becomes subject to refusal, defunction, oblivion, domestication, rediscovery or protection; why certain buildings cannot adapt to the changing political circumstances, how they turn into stigmatized objects. Based on these questions, the research and the corresponding workshops will highlight the various relationships to the built environment, architecture and object culture of post-war modernism.
