Das Heute ist das Gestern von Morgen. Gespräche und Exkursionen zum Kulturellen Erbe an der Schnittstelle der Zeit / Oggi è lo ieri di domani. Conversazioni e visite sul patrimonio culturale al crocevia del tempo

Summer semester: April-June 2022

Responsibles: Gerhard Glüher, Waltraud Kofler Engl, Brita Köhler

Platform Cultural Heritage and Cultural Production of the Faculty of Design and Art

Curated by Waltraud Kofler Engl, Brita Köhler

In der Veranstaltungsreihe „Das Heute ist das Gestern von Morgen: Gespräche und Exkursionen zum Kulturellen Erbe an der Schnittstelle der Zeit“ soll die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Begriff des „Kulturellen Erbes“ im Rahmen des Studium Generale fortgesetzt werden. Im Gegensatz zu der klassischen Auffassung, den Begriff vor allem in Bezug auf Vergangenes zu diskutieren, soll er gezielt von einem neuen Blickwinkel aus betrachtet und um Aspekte der Gegenwart und zukunftsgewandte Fragestellungen erweitert werden. Ziel der 8-teiligen Veranstaltungsreihe ist das Schaffen eines Dialogs zwischen historischen und zeitgenössischen Aspekten, die mit dem Aufbau und der Pflege von Kulturerbe, aber auch mit seiner Sichtbarkeit und der kollektiven Verantwortung dafür einhergehen. Angeboten werden themenspezifische Gespräche mit Gästen aus Kunst, Kultur und Wirtschaft, Blicke hinter die Kulissen lokaler Einrichtungen, die sich um den Aufbau und die Bewahrung von Kulturellem Erbe bemühen, sowie spezielle Stadtrundgänge auf den Spuren von gestern und heute. /

Nella serie di eventi “L’oggi è l’ieri di domani: Conversazioni e visite sul patrimonio culturale al crocevia del tempo”, prosegue nell’ambito dello Studium Generale il dibattito sul concetto di “patrimonio culturale”. In contrasto con la visione classica secondo cui il termine è da intendersi principalmente in relazione al passato, ci si propone di guardare al concetto da una prospettiva nuova ed estesa, capace di includere aspetti del presente e questioni orientate al futuro. L’obiettivo di questa serie di eventi in otto incontri è quello di creare un dialogo tra gli aspetti storici e quelli contemporanei associati alla costruzione e alla tutela del patrimonio culturale, ma anche alla sua visibilità e alla responsabilità collettiva nei suoi confronti. La proposta prevede conversazioni su temi specifici con ospiti provenienti dal mondo artistico, culturale e imprenditoriale, sguardi dietro le quinte di istituzioni locali impegnate a costruire e preservare il patrimonio culturale, ma anche speciali visite della città sulle tracce del passato e del presente.

Convegno / Tagung

Heimat: Immer noch? Zur Dauer und Aktualität eines Begriffes / 

Heimat: ancora oggi? Sulla durata e l’attualità di un concetto

Freitag / Venerdì 10.12.2021, 14:00-19:20 Uhr / Ore 14:00-19:20

„Heimat, das ist nicht nur Landschaft und Architektur, sondern auch vieles, das man über die Grenzen mitnehmen kann wie Sprache, Geschichten, Gedichte, Gebete, Rezepte, Bilder oder Musik“ (Aleida Assmann).

Hat Heimat trotz der historischen politisch-ideologischen Belastungen und Missbräuche heute noch Bedeutung? Die Debatte um das breite Bedeutungsspektrum des umstrittenen Begriffs eröffnet Möglichkeiten ihn dynamischer, mobiler, grenzfreier, in ständigem Umbau begriffen und vom Recht auf Mitgestaltung her zu verstehen und Heimat(en) neu zu denken.

Heimat non è solo paesaggio e architettura, ma anche molte cose che si possono trasportare oltre i confini, come la lingua, le storie, le poesie, le preghiere, le ricette, le immagini o la musica” (Aleida Assmann). 

Heimat ha ancora un significato oggi, nonostante le storiche tensioni politico-ideologiche e gli abusi? Il dibattito sull’ampio spettro di significati di questo concetto controverso apre la possibilità di comprenderlo in un modo più dinamico, mobile, senza confini, in costante ridefinizione, dalla prospettiva del diritto a partecipare e a ripensare diverse Heimat(en).

Studium Generale

A Fragile Heritage: Post-war Modernist Architecture in South Tyrol and Neighboring Countries

Winter semester: November 2021-January 2022

Responsible: Gerhard Glüher, Waltraud Kofler Engl

Curated by Waltraud Kofler Engl

The lecture series “A Fragile Heritage: Post-war Modernist Architecture in South Tyrol and Neighboring Countries”, organized within the Studium Generale of the Winter Semester 2021/22, is meant as a continuation of the conversations begun last spring with the series “A Fragile Heritage. Preserving 20th-Century Architecture,” which was devoted to the conservation and restoration of a number of modern works of national and international significance. The lectures and tours will focus on exemplary case studies within the European region of Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino and Switzerland and will address regional manifestations of post-war modernism, including green and open spaces, as well as strategies aimed at their protection, preservation, restoration, and further construction.

The cycle seeks to raise a series of questions about the architectural and technical qualities of these works, their adaptation to contemporary needs, their value – often underestimated – as cultural heritage, with the aim of stimulating and promoting debate on the architecture of the recent past and to raise public awareness of the subject. The knowledge of built heritage and its historical, architectural and urban significance is in fact a fundamental requirement for its enhancement and preservation.

Presentation

A fragile heritage: Preserving 20th century architecture

April-May 2021

Curated by Waltraud Kofler Engl and Gaia Piccarolo, Platform Cultural Heritage and Cultural Production, unibz

Modernism as an architectural language has served various myths and ideologies. Modernism itself has also entered the sphere of myth. We need only think, for example, of the recent restoration of the Bauhaus building in Dessau to understand how much is at stake in the preservation of the image and matter of a single building and the radical utopia it is still capable of evoking. But it is also a fragile myth, since it is set in an abstract and intellectual dimension, so to speak, while its figurative, material, constructive, symbolic value still struggles to find a peaceful place in the collective imagination. The theme of the protection of modernist architecture therefore poses a series of challenging questions: how does the architecture of the recent past enter into history? How can we deal with the conflicts that inevitably arise around its “heritagization”? How are we to protect its materiality in the face of new uses and new needs? How can we manage the issue of its preservation in the context of a legislative vacuum and the spread of practices such as abandonment, lack of maintenance or invasive transformation?

The conference series “A fragile heritage. Preserving 20th century architecture” aims to analyse a number of national and international case studies that look at the protection, rehabilitation and conservation of emblematic works or groups of works from the last century, in order to build a conceptual framework and to shape a series of interpretative tools that can encourage and stimulate debate on the architectural heritage of the twentieth century. The idea is to lay the background for a second series of seminars focused on local case-studies relating to the modern heritage of European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino and in particular the city of Bolzano. These meetings therefore aim not only to identify possible methodological approaches, but also to raise wider public awareness of the topic, promoting the knowledge of the built heritage and its historical, architectural and urban significance.
