The reason for this situation is the long period of isolation that these countries experienced during the years of the Iron Curtain. This lack of acknowledgment in turn fuels the nationalistic tone of the discourse regarding modernism that dominates today in post-socialist countries.
For the organisers therefore, this role needs to be pointed out and the exhibition does just this, presenting moments, episodes and players considered fundamental for the architectural culture of Central Europe and organised into different areas: Knowledge Networks, Exiles, Institutes/Agencies, Events, Publicity, Shared Vocabulary.
