Izložba o arhitekturi Jugoslavije u MoMA muzeju

Najuticajniji muzej moderne umetnosti na svetu, njujorški Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), od 15. jula prikazivaće izložbu Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980, čija je tema arhitektura bivše Jugoslavije.

To će biti prva velika međunarodna izložba koja se bavi arhitekturom bivše Jugoslavije, a koja će obuhvatiti više od 400 crteža, modela, fotografija i video radova iz raznih opštinskih arhiva, porodičnih kolekcija i muzeja širom regiona, putem kojih će posetioci moći da pogledaju dela vodećih arhitekata socijalističke Jugoslavije.

Arhitektura koja se pojavila tokom tog perioda - od modernih nebodera, do monumentalnih spomenika i drugih objekata - predstavlja manifest radikalnog pluralizma, hibridnosti i idealizma koji je karakterisao samu jugoslovensku državu, navodi se u zvaničnoj najavi izložbe.

Izložba istražuje teme urbanizacije, tehnološkog eksperimenta i njegove primene u svakodnevnom životu, spomenicima, memorijalizaciji i globalnom dosijeu jugoslovenske arhitekture, u pravcu konkretne utopije, a predstaviće radove važnih arhitekata, uključujući Bogdana Bogdanovića, Juraja Neidhardta, Svetlane Kane Radević, Edvarda Ravnikara, Vjenčeslava Rihtera i Milice Šterić.

Organizatori izložbe su Martino Sterli, glavni kustos arhitekture i dizajna MoMA muzeja, Vladimir Kulić, gostujući kustos i Ana Kats, kustos asistent na Odseku za arhitekturu i dizajn MoMA muzeja.

Izložba "Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980" biće otvorena od 15. jula ove do 13. januara 2019. godine.

The Meaning of Reality

Essays on Existence and Communion, Eros and History

by Christos Yannaras

The collection of articles traces the thought of Christos Yanaras through his long journey in discovering the meaning of existence, communion, eros, and history. It is a cause of immense joy that no fewer than twenty articles of passionate significance and substance have at present been gathered together in this volume under the title The Meaning of Reality.

Yannaras is undoubtedly one of the most significant thinkers of our time. Kallistos Ware once described him as "the most creative and prophetic religious thinker at work in Greece today," while Rowan Williams characterizes him as "one of the most significant Christian philosophers in Europe." His very wide and no less deep education helps him to develop an inimitable blend of philosophy, theology, and social criticism, and to speak in an original way about the traditional and contemporary issues of human existence, as well as the latest challenges of modern empirical science and political engagement. A detailed knowledge of the writings of the Holy Fathers has always been his foundation amidst the labyrinth of modern thought - which is inimately bound up with psychoanalysis, environmental issues, human rights, postmodernism, and pluralism , to mention just a few. Insistence on the primacy, uniqueness, and eternal value of human personality prevails in almost all his works and inspires his own vigorous theological and ecumenical engagement, based on the Orthodox eucharistic and ascetic tradition.
