London Modern

London Modern 22 – a conference celebrating and debating modernism in all its forms.

Our programme included an interrogation of the meanings of modernism, reviews of public architecture and the public realm the the 20th Century, a discussion of how modernist design informed film and popular culture, an exhibition of the overlooked infrastructure of our motorways, voices from people living in and fighting to preserve modernist buildings, and reflections on how London features in TS Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land’ – a landmark of modernist literature published 100 years ago. 

The speakers are noted designers, artists, historians, critics, activists, but above all enthusiasts who will help us understand and celebrate the richness of London’s modernist legacy, and reflect on its lessons for the 21st Century.
