Subjective Atlas of Kaunas
|Author||Hugo Herrera Tobón, ed|
Between 1919 and 1940, Kaunas served as Lithuania’s temporary capital, triggering a massive boom in construction that greatly increased its urban area. For this instalment of the Subjective Atlas series, a group of almost 40 creative residents mapped the contemporary identity of Kaunas through their personal interests, experiences, and domesticity, visualising the heritage and history of Lithuania’s second-largest city. The book highlights a surprising collection of urban, natural, and everyday spaces and artefacts, inviting readers to reflect on how this material and immaterial modernist heritage is perceived or observed, appreciated or disliked, ignored or associated with.
