Calvert 22 to host Owen Hatherley book launch next week

8 September 2015

On Monday 14 September Calvert 22 will host the launch of Owen Hatherley’s latest book Landscapes of Communism: A History through Buildings (Allen Lane), an analysis of the built legacy of the Soviet Union and socialist eastern Europe.

The launch is the first in a Calvert 22 series of pop-up events taking place this autumn, and will feature the author in conversation with Dr Jamie Rann on Communist architecture and the relationship between ideology and place.

A regular contributor to the Calvert Journal, Owen Hatherley is the author of four books on British architecture, politics and pop culture as well as Across the Plaza, an e-book on public squares in post-communist Europe. He wrote his PhD thesis on Americanism in the Weimar Republic and the USSR. He lives mostly in Woolwich and sometimes in Warsaw.

The event will take place at Calvert 22 Gallery at 7pm on Monday 14 September.

Tickets for the launch are now sold out, but a waiting list is available.
