Program Description

Exercising Modernity Academy is an project for intellectual and artistic exchange, focused on describing the modern heritage in a new, interdisciplinary way as well as in an international context. The project aims to highlight modern ideas in a broader sense by tracing modernization practices in Europe and beyond, as well as by following the establishment of modern societies and modern states. Nevertheless, we pay special attention to culture, and more specifically to architecture, which we consider a unique field of various intersecting perspectives, ambitions, concerns and hopes relevant in the formation of the 20th century world. Exercising Modernity invites creators of culture, researchers, curators, and scholars who are interested in the history and culture of Poland, Germany and Israel to an intellectual, artistic and scientific exchange.
