Glasgow international

Marija Nemcenko



In an intuitive study of socialist structures that expands from Eastern Europe’s brutalist landscapes to Glasgow’s tower blocks, BRUT finds shared experiences to reveal the cultural legacy of these constructions. Influenced by personal experience of migration from a young post-Soviet nation, Nemcenko addresses the questions of unfulfilled promises and elaborates upon how these concrete colonies come to define a certain social and cultural identity from multiple perspectives at once.

Supported by Glasgow City Heritage Trust, Lithuanian Culture Institute and Lithuanian Embassy in the UK.
