Thursday, November 18th, 2021, 7 p.m.:
Digital lecture as part of our special exhibition: “Kinder der Moderne – Growing up Modern”

Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster, the curators of the current exhibition at the Weissenhofwerkstatt, will discuss the oral history research project which documents the memories of children who were the first inhabitants of some of the most iconic Modernist buildings: the J.J.P. Oud row house at the Weissenhofsiedlung, the Mies van der Rohe Tugendhat House, the Schminke House by Hans Scharoun and Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation in Marseille. Sharing their contemporary photographs as well as fragments of recollections from former inhabitants, the lecture expands on the materials displayed in the exhibition and provides intimate narratives of Modernism in architecture.

Greetings and introduction: Anja Krämer, head of the Weissenhofmuseum
The lecture will be held in English and last 45 minutes. After that there is still time for questions.
