SHAPES OF BALKANIZATION - Exhibition at Akademie Schloss Solitude Stuttgart

research

For an installation at Solitude, which coincides with the launch of Almost Architecture book published by Merz&Solitude, a moment of how city incorporates new shapes into itself is isolated as an installation in light. Twelve slide projectors at Solitude show a number of contemporary building shapes born in the Balkans that spark imagination by their irregularity and appearance. They are not examples of perfection, but they are examples of perfected ambition. This ambition is to make the city private and beautiful at the same time. This we can read as the antidote to the most difficult goal of modernism that happened in the Balkans region during socialism, that is to make city collective and functional. >>
