This talk will discuss the conceptualization and development of the exhibition Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948-1980 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It will address the curatorial strategies and archival challenges encountered in the process, and it will reflect on the potentially transformative meaning of the exhibition for the built heritage of the former socialist world.

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 (July 2018-January 2019), and author and editor of several books, including Modernism In-Between: The Mediatory Architectures of Socialist Yugoslavia (2012) and Second World Postmodernisms: Architecture and Society Under Late Socialism (2019).
