archint_1989_cz:de is an event series focusing on the architecture and monuments from the post-warperiod and how they have been dealt with since the Velvet Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall in1989.

Why does our freedom often manifest as thefreedom to destroy or simply just to forget? Can theseactions be seen themselves as not only interventions but as actual monuments to the regained freedom,reunification and post-1989 transformation? Should these works of art and architecture be disconnectedfrom their political connotations and instead be respected for their artistic value? Is it a question of East–West division? Here, Czech and German architectural theoreticians will present their new projects anddiscuss them.
