Welcome to HMKV's blog.

This blog currently documents a research trip to twelve former Soviet Republics for a new regional project of the Goethe-Institut (2015-17). Earlier entries document the "Afro-Tech and the Future of (Re-)Invention" research trip to Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria (10-25 April 2014, Anne Bergner and Inke Arns), and the INDUSTRIAL on Tour trip to five industrial cities in Poland (27 Sep - 9 Oct 2011, Thibaut de Ruyter, Inke Arns et al.)

Die Ausstellung "Tarnów. 1000 Years of Modernity" (29.9.2011)

Industrial on Tour läuft als Finissage der Ausstellung „Tarnów. 1000 lat nowoczesności” (Tarnów. 1000 Years of Modernity) - hier ein Auszug aus dem Konzept:

"The project Tarnów. 1000 Years of Modernity deals with ideas of modernity in the specific context of the peripheral and the marginal. It is informed by the endeavors and dreams of 20th century city planners, and aims to present modernist Tarnów against the background of Polish and European architecture.
The modern history of Tarnów begins in 1927 with the construction of an industrial complex in Mościce. It ends one thousand years later, in projects by Jan Głuszak Dagamara (1937-2000) the architect and futurologist from Tarnów, who in the 1960s and 1970s created visions of cities of the future.
Tarnów: 1000 Years of Modernity narrates a thousand-year history, tracing and revealing various paths the Tarnovian modernism had been taking, on one hand, a reflection of international tendencies, and on the other, a particular, provincial rendition of 'being modern.' Modernity was about the dreams that shape the future, and the project presents unrealized scenarios - a fiasco of architects' and urban planners' aspirations, and ensuing hence from alternative visions of the present."
