International workshop at the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture, ETH, Zürich, 7-8 July, 202
This international workshop aims to identify some of the methods, actors, ideas and principles behind restoration of architectural monuments and their promotion to a wider public on the territories of the former Russian, Habsburg and Ottoman Empires and their successor states.
The focus of the workshop is both on the activity of restoration and on the various mediums for the promotion of architectural monuments, such as exhibitions, new urban layouts, ceremonies, commemorations, re-enactments, artificial lighting, entertainment venues, etc. Central and Eastern Europe is defined by its dual Imperial and national heritage, by many overlapping common histories and by similar social and cultural contexts.
Therefore, comparisons, contrasts or parallels are in particular suitable and papers looking at more than one national context are especially welcomed.
