Lifting the Curtain ... in Venice

Lifting The Curtain. Central European Architectural Networks – a Collateral Event of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia will be presented in partnership with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute

The exhibition investigates the role of Central European cross-national architectural networks and circles at different turning points of the 20th century. The contribution of Central Europe to the formation and dissemination of modernity is largely unknown or seen as a marginal episode in post-war historiographies of global modern architecture, due in part to its long term isolation from Western discourse. This situation also reinforced the currently dominant national narratives of modernism in post-socialist countries.
It presents illustrative cases of Architectural culture, co-relations and production of Central European cross-national networks. These representations of different actors are labeled with categories: Knowledge Networks, Exiles, Institutes/Agencies, Events, Publicity, Shared Vocabulary, but many individuals and figures appear at the same time in different cases.
The exhibition organized and produced by Polish Modern Art Foundation will be held in Venice, June 7 – November 23, 2014. Simone De Iacobis, Monika Konrad and Małgorzata Kuciewicz will be responsible for the exhibition design.

Exhibition duration: June 7 – November 23, 2014Venue: Officina delle Zattere, Dorsoduro 919, 30123 Venezia Partners: Adam Mickiewicz Institute (Instytut Adama Mickiewicza), Warsaw and Fine Art Museum (Szépművészeti Múzeum), Budapest, Hungary.
