Art and Heritage in Central Europe

Call for Papers: “20th-Century Housing Heritage in Europe” (Vienna, 28-30 November 2024)

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

“20th-Century Housing Heritage in Europe: Conserving, Participating, and Adapting” is a conference organised by TU Wien – Denkmalpflege und Bauen im Bestand: Prof. Heike Oevermann and Team, and Bauhaus-Universität Weimar – Stadtplanung: Prof. Barbara Schönig and Team.

The conference focusses on housing concepts and built settlements of the 20th century, which often explicitly addressed hygienical, ecological, communal, and social issues and necessities. We ask how these heritage values can be conserved for the sake of sustainable futures. Forms of use, social interaction, and participation might contribute to the care and careful adaptation of such sites, but also create conflicts. Various actors – from business, politics, conservation, and civil society – define, appropriate, and manage this housing heritage and need to be involved. The conference also examines housing and climate policies, development pressure, and vacancy as powerful contexts.

The conference is to be held in Vienna, on 28-30 November 2024. Contributions should address at least one of presented sub-themes, please indicate your choice. Abstracts (maximum 300 words) and a short vita (maximum 50 words) should be submitted to Luisa Omonsky/Johann Gallis (wohnenimdenkmal@TUWien.ac.at) before March 28th, 2024. Responses will be given by mid-May, 2024.

The conference language is English.
