Call for Papers: 15th International DOCOMOMO Conference: Metamorphosis, the Continuity of Change

June 18, 2017

Every other year DOCOMOMO International convenes a conference to bring together DOCOMOMO members and friends from its 72 national Working Parties. The next conference, in August 2018, is being hosted by DOCOMOMO Slovenia, and will take place at the Cankarjev Dom in Ljubljana. The conference combines paper sessions, roundtables, workshops, and tours. Authors are invited to submit abstracts of 400 words in length by September 1 under the conference theme: Metamorphosis, the Continuity of Change. 

The theme is in response to the huge escalation of change in all areas of life, even surpassing the radical transformations that characterized the Modern Movement era of the mid-20th century. The social and aesthetic values of the Modern Movement, as well as its status as heritage and element of identity, are very much under attack. The conference seeks answers to the question: What does DOCOMOMO stand for in this rapidly changing context?
