A map of Rome and, within it, a new module that constantly repeats itself. A composition of 16 facades. The photographic art print is entitled “Dialoghi Urbani“ (“Urban Dialogues“). On 10 September, 6.30 pm Kaunas Artists’ House and “Kaunas 2022” platform “Modernism for the Future” is pleased to invite you to the opening of Camilla Borghese’s exhibition “Dialoghi Urbani”.
During World War II skilled and refined architects proved themselves by reflecting their ideas of form and space on the small scale of the new dwellings for the Roman bourgeoisie, through the language of modern architecture. A new housing typology arises: the palazzina. Following the path laid down by the Becher spouses, the present work confronts different facades, re-examining them several decades after their construction, and offering a careful portrait of real facts and experienced life.
This event is a part of a series that follow the establishing of the KAH infocentre.
