Docomomo, the international committee for documentation and conservation of buildings, sites and neighbourhoods of the Modern movement, every two years organizes an international conference that brings together members and friends from its 72 national Working Parites, as an opportunity for in-depth exploration of an important theme or aspect of the Modern Movement.
This year’s conference will have a unique place and moment in the history of Docomomo International for it is celebrating the 30 years of its existence. For three decades, Docomomo has been putting effort to preserve and adapt the technical, social and aesthetic goals of the Modern Movement – values which have always been intrinsically intertwined with change. Its 15th Conference, held in Ljubljana’s Cankarjev dom – Cultural and Congress Centre (CD) in late August 2018 will, thus, be appropriately titled Metamorphosis – The Continuity of Change and will address the history of Modern Movement transformations.
The conference will host more than 100 lectures, distributed into 18 parallel sets with subthemes spanning over cities, buildings, identities and environment. The multi-disciplined scientific conference is one of the rare international expert organisations that, under one roof, unites diverse professions with a joint care for the development of cities that we live in.
