On 10 September 2021, the exhibition Contested Modernities. Postcolonial Architecture in Southeast Asia opened its doors at Haus der Statistik in Berlin.
After we had to postpone the exhibition several times, we were finally able to invite to the opening. It was a wonderful evening!
Nine impressive presentations were given at the kick-off symposium of Encounters with Southeast Asian Modernism in Berlin. See all contributions, and the closing discussion here.
Following the symposium on Friday, the curators from Jakarta, Phnom Penh, Singapore, and Yangon went on a four-day exploratory tour together with the team from Berlin.
