Out since 2010-07 …Colonial Modern: Aesthetics of the Past, Rebellions for the Future(Black Dog Publishing, ISBN 9781907317118), a book which “focuses on the dual topics of the relationship between the post-war aesthetic regime of modernism and the project of modernization in architecture and urban planning, as well as on the highly charged intertwining of both in the context of colonialism and decolonization.” “Colonial Modern” is based on the exhibition In the desert of modernity: colonial planning and after“, which traced connected histories of modern architecture and urban planning in colonial northern Africa and Europe, as first exhibited in 2008 at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Germany.
