Lviv. 24 June 1937. City, architecture, modernism

What did Lviv look like just before the outbreak of World War II? What really happened on June 24, 1937? Why hasn’t there been  an exhibition dedicated to Modernism in Lviv and the creators from the city yet? Come to the Museum of Architecture for one of the most important events of the ECoC Wrocław 2016 architecture programme – an exhibition dedicated to the Modernist architecture and urban design of Lviv!

This exhibition is the first extensive presentation of the achievements of architects from Lviv, juxtaposed with other areas of cultural life in the city using plans, maps, models, photographs, works of art, posters, postcards and films. The presentation, based on public and private collections from Poland and Ukraine is a diverse portrait of a Modernist city and emphasises the role of Lviv as the centre of modernity in the interwar period. 

It was a time when many associations and creators were active, which brought about the dynamics of the cultural life in the city, such as the Artes group, photographers, poster designers, creators of the Lviv mathematics school, university and academic circles, filmmakers, radio artists and others. 

In this context, the modernist architecture, the value and significance of which cannot be overestimated, flourished. The architects from Lviv created many unique and exceptional designs in all areas of the new architecture – private villas and townhouses, public buildings, the offices of Lviv radio station and sport areas. 

The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive catalogue, edited by Prof. Bohdan Czerkies and Prof. Andrzej Szczerski, containing essays of Polish and Ukrainian scholars, as well as broad selection of iconographic materials.

Professor Andrzej Szczerski is the curator of the exhibition.

The exhibition will be available until March 23, 2017.
