Call for Papers: Special Issue - Modern Movement in Ukraine

2022-04-30

In March 2022 DOCOMOMO International has put forward a Solidarity Statement on Ukraine to express our solidarity and to intensify our joint activities of documentation and conservation related to Modernist Architecture and Urbanism in Ukraine. DOCOMOMO Ukraine since its inception together with other academics and activists has been documenting and analyzing the history of Ukrainian Avant-garde and Modernist Architecture. Today, a number of these objects have been already destroyed or seriously damaged, and in general this heritage is at risk of being destroyed due to the brutal aggression.

A Special Issue of the Open Access DOCOMOMO Journal will be dedicated to buildings and sites of the Modern Movement in Ukraine in order to better present its history and development, as well as its current state to the world community. You can publish in one of our categories. Lectures, Essays, Documentation Issues, Interviews, Heritage in Danger, Tributes, Conservation Issues, Technical Issues, News, Book Reviews.

We invite Ukrainian researchers and practitioners to take part in this work and to contribute with papers, book reviews, case studies, digital models and documentations to the project. The contributions for this special issue will be peer-reviewed and selected by the guest editor(s) Prof. Dr. Alexander Bouryak in close cooperation with the editorial team of the DOCOMOMO Journal.
