Lecture by Michelle Provoost on 'New Towns on the Cold War Frontier; urban planning as an instrument in cold war politics' at the conference 'Cold War Culture'.
This major conference brings together some of the most exciting thinkers on art, design and architecture in the post-1945 period to reflect on the ways in which Cold War politics shaped art and design. Organised in conjunction with the V&A's landmark exhibition, it offers new perspectives on a period which continues to grip the imagination today. The conference is chaired by David Crowley and Jane Pavitt, curators of the Cold War Modern exhibition.
