Roman Bezjak - Socialist Modernism
Roman Bezjak's Socialist Modernism takes an impartial view of communist architecture, using a large-format camera to take photographs of residential buildings, institutions, hotels, and palaces of culture in familiar and foreign places from Tallinn and Tirana to Dresden and Dnipropetrovsk. This photographic series renders a kind of archeology of postwar modernism without nostalgically glorifying the former East Bloc. Thanks to Hatje Cantz (Germany) and Books at Manic.
