Book presentation Fragile City by David Bergé

Book presentation Wednesday 23 September
19.30-21.30@deBuren, Brussels


Fragile City
 revisits Le Corbusier’s Voyage d’Orient of 1911 in the contemporary context of urbanization with essays and work by David Bergé, Elke Krasny and Tülay Atak. It is based on urban curatorial research by Krasny and photographic exploration by Bergé. In dialogue with local experts in Athens, Belgrade, Istanbul, Rome and Vienna, Le Corbusier’s formative route was re-contextualized in contemporary terms. Atak’s contribution is an essay on Le Corbusier’s photographs as documents of an urban context corresponding to a moment at the end of imperialism and beginning of nation-states. With these essays and photographs, Fragile City is a visual, critical and historical reflection on contemporary urbanization.
