New Book on Architectural Heritage

30. Okt. 2015

PD Dr. Michael Falser (Global Art History, D18 Picturesque Modernities) and Prof. Wilfried Lipp (ICOMOS Austria) have published a multi-authored volume entitled „Eine Zukunft für unsere Vergangenheit. Zum 40. Jubiläum des Europäischen Denkmalschutzjahres / A Future for Our Past. 40th Anniversary of European Architectural Heritage Year (1975-2015)”.

Under the motto "A Future for Our Past, the European Architectural Heritage Year of 1975" was the most important and successful campaign of its time for the preservation and valorisation of architectural heritage in Europe. This publication is the first comprehensive appraisal of the 1975 event for its 40th anniversary in 2015. More than 40 international authors comment on the formerly participating countries (including Germany), the campaign’s influences in the East Bloc Countries, and, finally, its Non-European reception (from Brazil, the USA to South Africa and the Levant), reaching far into the Asian-Pacific region with contributions on China, Japan and Australia.

The publication is a collaborative project between Michael Falser, ICOMOS International and ICOMOS Austria. The book was partly funded by the Cluster of Excellence "Asia and Europe". The book will be launched on 6 November during a podium discussion in Vienna, and on 13 November in Berlin during a colloquium about the new “Europäisches Kultureerbejahr 2018” in presence of Hermann Parzinger (President of Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz) and Prof. Adrian von Buttlar (TU Berlin).

Michael Falser recently finalized his Habitation of Angkor/Cambodia as result of the former D12 project “Heritage as a Transcultural Project”, and is now Project Leader of the D18 Project “Picturesque Modernities. A Transcultural Enquiry into the Formation of the “Regionalist Style” in Architecture between Europe and South/Southeast/East Asia”. Both projects contribute important insights for the Cluster’s Research Area D “Heritage and Historicities”.
