The recent history of Central Europe - a history that vividly blurs the line between imagination and reality - is a particularly vibrant case study of such dynamics, the same dynamics that lie at the heart of modern perception.It investigates how varied and opposing tendencies co-exist and are transposed from one cultural and temporal register to another- how they emerge and are maintained in constantly renewed, productive tensions - what we call inhabited ruins.

Along the way the reader will encounter music from the Terezín concentration camp as a reversed Potemkin village, the BMW as an itinerant lieu de mémoire, Mies van der Rohes architecture as spaces belonging nowhere, anxious geographies, extra-territorial sounds, misremembered avant-gardes, and post-apocalyptic identities that fell out of time.
