Balkanology Exhibition at Sofia Architecture Week

Vivacom Art Hall, Sofia Architecture Week (SAW), Sofia
05.11. - 04.12.2011

In cooperation with AzW Architekturzentrum Wien/Vienna and SAM Swiss Architecture Museum, Basel. Organised by Architecture Center Sofia Az S (Ephgenia Hodkevitch and Boris Enev)

Curated by Kai Vöckler

The exhibition (co-curated by Vladimir Kulic and Maroje Mrduljas) focuses on the architecture of former Yugoslavia and its successor states, and on urban transformation in South Eastern Europe, by referencing various case studies from Belgrade, Bucharest, Kotor, Pula, Prishtina, Sofia, Tirana and Zagreb. Sofia is the final venue on this exhibition tour, following successful presentations in Basel (2008), Vienna (2009/2010), Bucharest (2010), and Belgrade and Podgorica (2011), where it — and the accompanying program of conferences — aroused a great deal of public interest. Curator Kai Vöckler has expressed interest in developing a new, innovative format, both in order to intensify exhibition participants' discussion of current urban transformation in South Eastern Europe, and to present their findings to a broader public.
