Please join the Architecture Department for our weekly Tuesday Talks series, this week featuring Vladimir Kulić, presenting Exhibiting Yugoslavia.
Vladimir Kulić is an architectural historian, curator, and critic specializing in modern and contemporary architecture. Vladimir has written extensively about architecture in the former Yugoslavia. He is the co-curator of the exhibition Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948-1980 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2018-2019), and the author of Modernism In-Between: The Mediatory Architectures of Socialist Yugoslavia (written with Maroje Mrduljaš, with photos by Wolfgang Thaler, 2012). Vladimir’s other books offer a broader perspective on postwar architecture. Sanctioning Modernism: Architecture and the Making of Postwar Identities (edited with Monica Penick and Timothy Parker, 2014) explores modernism’s mobilization in three different contexts: state-building, religious institutions, and domestic environments. The forthcoming edited volume, Second World Postmodernisms: Architecture and Society Under Late Socialism (2019), focuses on numerous case-studies ranging from Eastern Europe to Cuba and China to bring attention to the little known fact that, in the 1970s and 1980s, forms of postmodernism flourished across the former socialist world.
Trained as an architect at the University of Belgrade, Vladimir obtained his Ph.D. in architectural history from the University of Texas at Austin. He has received numerous fellowships, grants, and awards, including those from the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, American Academy in Berlin, Graham Foundation, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., American Council of Learned Societies, and the Fondazione Bruno Zevi in Rome.
