Balkanology. New Architecture And Urban Phenomena in Southeast Europe
22 October 2009 - 18 January 2010, Architekturzentrum Wien
Architekturzentrum Wien, MuseumsQuartier, Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna
Daily 10 am - 7 pm
An exhibition by the S AM - Swiss Architecture Museum, Basel in cooperation with the Architekturzentrum Wien

Extensive informal construction that began with the end of the Socialist economic system has resulted in a radical transformation of urban structures and a new form of urbanisation. With examples from Belgrade, Bucharest, Kotor, Pula, Prishtina, Sofia, Tirana and Zagreb, the exhibition "Balkanology. New Architecture and Urban Phenomena in Southeast Europe" shows how architects, urbanists and activists engage with the rapid processes of urban transformation in a context of their cultural, social and political dimensions in the Balkan countries. As an initiative - supported by ERSTE Foundation from the outset - the exhibition opens up a new field, and provides an overview of the little known post-Socialist architecture as well as the result of unregulated and uncontrolled urban planning in the countries of Southeast Europe. In its 2009 programme the Architekturzentrum Wien focuses on the Balkans. After the very successful exhibition about Bogdan Bogdanović the Az W shows "Balkanology. New Architecture And Urban Phenomena in Southeast Europe". In the accompanying programme the 17th Wiener Architektur Kongress also deals with this topic.
