Within the project Unfinished modernisations (sponsored by the EU Culture programme 2007-2013), an exhibition about the Yugoslav Borba prize for architecture was organized in Skopje (April, 1-7 2011) and Belgrade (May 5-15 2011). The exhibition shows the winners of the only federal award for architecture in socialist Yugoslavia, presented by the daily newspaper Borba. This prestigious award was the main official benchmark of architectural excellence in former Yugoslavia, but it also reflected and promoted the concept of "brotherhood and unity" and a formation of pan-Yugoslav identity. The aim is to present an insight in the political, social and economic context written by the language of the built environment, but also to provide an opportunity to asses how architectural values of the socialist society fare in today's radically changed conditions. This exhibition will be the first ever that presents all Borba Federal Award winners between 1965 and 1990 in one place.

Abstract

Within the project Unfinished modernisations (sponsored by the EU Culture programme 2007-2013), an exhibition about the Yugoslav Borba prize for architecture was organized in Skopje (April, 1-7 2011) and Belgrade (May 5-15 2011). The exhibition shows the winners of the only federal award for architecture in socialist Yugoslavia, presented by the daily newspaper Borba. This prestigious award was the main official benchmark of architectural excellence in former Yugoslavia, but it also reflected and promoted the concept of "brotherhood and unity" and a formation of pan-Yugoslav identity. The aim is to present an insight in the political, social and economic context written by the language of the built environment, but also to provide an opportunity to asses how architectural values of the socialist society fare in today's radically changed conditions. This exhibition will be the first ever that presents all Borba Federal Award winners between 1965 and 1990 in one place.
