Focusing on architectural work from 1948–80 in former Yugoslavia, this exhibition investigates architecture’s capacity to produce a shared civic space and common history through drawings, models, photographs, and film reels from an array of municipal archives, personal collections, and museums. With galleries dedicated to the topics of modernisation, global networks, everyday life, and identities, it explores themes of large-scale urbanisation, technological experimentation and its application not only in everyday life but also the global reach of Yugoslav architecture. Featuring work by noted architects including Bogdan Bogdanović, Svetlana Kana Radević, Edvard Ravnikar, and Milica Šterić, the exhibition examines the range of forms and modes of production in Yugoslav architecture and its distinct yet multifaceted character.
