“Trespassing Modernities” reveals the legacy of modern architecture in the former Soviet Union. Examples of exceptional practices by local architects working in the 1960s and 1970s followed by the crticial approach of the Paper Architecture movement in the 1980s are brought together from the 15 countries that once made up the Union.
The exhibition is programmed by Georg Schöllhammer together with Ruben Arevshatyan.
From May 8 through August 11 the selection of scale models, drawings, photographs, films and ephemera that portray post-war life in the USSR will be on view at SALT Galata in Karaköy, Istanbul.
