The «Special Focus – Modernism in Ukraine» will take place as part of the Triennial of Modernism 2022 in Berlin, presented jointly with DOCOMOMO international and ICOMOS. The cooperation of TDM, DOCOMOMO and ICOMOS represents an initiative for a future strategic partnership as a «Triangle for Modernism» to increase awareness and appreciation of heritage and relevance of Modernism and was launched by the curators on the occasion of the networking and building work for a «European Triennial of Modernism».
The Special Focus was based on the cooperation and work of different partners and actors from Ukraine and other European countries as well as from Germany / Berlin. The underlying curatorial concept focuses on the principle of transnational collaboration and an understanding of a pluralistic modernism with a contemporary relevance of a vital diversity of current actors. The concept is in line with the approach for a «European Triennial of Modernism» (ETOM), as a future European collaborative project in which common themes, challenges and potentials on modernism result in exchange and transnational collaboration and formats.
At the same time, the Special Focus will address the preserved and in turn renewed relevance and significance of Modernism, as a tangible architectural heritage in connection with the perspective of the history of ideas, in the common European development and for today’s future issues. Especially today, in the face of war and efforts to divide Europe, the European architectural-cultural genesis of Modernism, including historical ruptures, and a lively exchange prove to be exemplary for cultural cooperation and cohesion, especially in Central Europe.
