If you find yourself in New York between now and January, make a beeline to MOMA to see “Toward a Concrete Utopia, Architecture in Yugoslavia”. This fascinating exhibition explores life through architecture in the former Slavic state, with over 400 drawings, models, photographs, and film reels from an array of municipal archives, family-held collections, and museums across the region. Highlighting a significant yet understudied body of modernist architecture, the exhibition features work by architects including Bogdan Bogdanović, Juraj Neidhardt, Svetlana Kana Radević, Edvard Ravnikar, Vjenceslav Richter, and Milica Šterić. This is a part of the world we know little about, but alas New York is not on our upcoming itinerary, so if you do manage a visit, please be sure to report back. Photography courtesy of MOMA.
