The images of the war in Ukraine and the comprehensive suffering of the people on the ground are staggering. There is also no end to the destruction of cities, buildings and cultural assets. For this reason, on the second day of the Berlin Opening event, there will be a thematic focus on the roots and the situation of Modernism in Ukraine, using the example of the cities of Kharkiv and Lviv and their architectural heritage from different periods of Modernism . Within the Berlin festival period until the end of December, a five-part exhibition series on the topic will be on display at Ernst-Reuter-Platz.
