e-flux lectures: Ana Ofak, “Demolition Dada”
April 24, 2017, 7pm
311 East Broadway
New York, NY 10002

Promising aesthetic redemption for crumbling post-communist cityscapes and culture, the technocrats of European capitals as dissimilar as Berlin and Zagreb have one thing in common: The lust for neoliberal upsizing. The lecture will tour some of the construction sites in order to dig into the dirt of the brutal eradication of Brutalism, which goes hand in hand with the dismantling of the social state per se. 

Ana Ofak is a writer and researcher based in Berlin and Zagreb. Her work is developed at the intersection between academic research and cultural and media theory, with recent projects focusing on exhibition pavilions in post-war Yugoslavia and cultural sources of newness in the digital era. Last year, Ofak co-founded the initiative Post-Fascist Idyll, in an attempt to explore the complex of post-fascism together with artists, critics, and audiences at the Volksbühne Berlin. She holds a PhD in media and culture from the Bauhaus University, Weimar.
