Berlin, Germany

Herewith we would like to send you the Program for our planned workshop “Socialist Modernism”. The workshop will take place on 18-20 April on the occasion of the International Day of Monuments and Sites in Berlin and online. It is organized by ICOMOS Germany with the Max Lingner Foundation in cooperation with the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg. The event is supported by the Landesdenkmalamt Berlin, Helle Panke and the Hermann Henselmann Foundation.

The focus of the English-language workshop is the legacy of the “second socialist modernism” (1955-1990) in architecture and urban planning. The aim is to offer experts a cross-border platform for critical exchange. Guided tours to monuments and sites of Eastern Modernism in Berlin-Brandenburg will round off the workshop program.

A little bit of history

A European Heritage Summit was first organized in London on 26–28 April 2006 by Dr. Simon Thurley, former Chief Executive Officer of English Heritage. The mission of the Summit was to gather for the first time the European cultural heritage leaders who had the opportunity to exchange their experience and initiate common actions. It was attended by 23 European states which agreed in the Final Statement to continue to meet annually as a forum of European heritage heads, known as the “European Heritage Heads Forum”. Future hosting countries are chosen by general agreement at the annual meeting.
