Description

Registration Required

Presented by the Center for the Humanities Modernities Interdisciplinary Research Group
Cosponsored by the Department of History and the School of Architecture


Vladimir Kulić's talk will address issues of architecture and non-alignment in Yugoslavia during the Cold War. In addition to discussing historical concerns and aesthetic methodologies, his research tackles today’s greatly problematic reception of the avant-garde heritage of Yugoslav socialism. The theme of this presentation is additionally related to Dr. Kulić's work on a forthcoming exhibition about architecture in socialist Yugoslavia, which he is co-curating at MOMA. The show is scheduled to open in the summer of 2018.

Vladimir Kulić is a design historian at Florida Atlantic University. He specializes in architecture after World War II, as well as global exchanges of architectural culture and contemporary criticism. He is the author of Modernism In-Between: The Mediatory Architectures of Socialist Yugoslavia (with Maroje Mrduljaš and Wolfgang Thaler, 2012). He has won a number of international fellowships and accolades, including the 2007 Trustees Merit Citation from the Graham Foundation, and the 2009 Bruno Zevi Prize for a Historical/Critical Essay in Architecture. He was the 2012-13 FAU Scholar of the Year, and a 2013 Fellow of the American Council of Learned Societies.
