“Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia” at MoMA
July 15, 2018 - January 13, 2019
Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd St, New York, NY 10019


This survey presents more than 400 models, photographs, drawings, and film reels that chronicle how urbanization, consumerism, memorialization, and technology shaped the former Yugoslavia’s postwar construction efforts. Featuring projects from International Style skyscrapers to Brutalist structures to modernist buildings such as Bosnia’s White Mosque, the exhibition examines a wide range of modes and forms undertaken by its local architects, including Bogdan Bogdanović, Juraj Neidhardt, and Milica Šterić.
