The end of World War I brought freedom and drastic changes to Central Europe. Once lands dotted with towns of varying importance, they were transformed into capitals of regions and countries. Shifting borders and post-war political realities had a profound impact on culture and architecture. Political changes also cast aside large cities into obscurity while pushing insignificant villages to places of power. The state’s authority was expressed by the monumental forms of architecture that housed its institutions while the churches and public spaces offered scenography for the theatre of power. This exhibition is directed towards lovers of architectural history, applied arts, and anyone interested in the cultural and social changes in the early 20th century.
