Minsk. Contradictions of Utopia
According to Stephan Wackwitz in his essay in Sinn und Form, Belarus is still the least known country in Europe despite the current media interest. The West knows nothing of the radicalism of the urban landscape designed in Minsk after the Second World War, of the reinvention of an entire national culture. Matthias Weichelt talks to Stephan Wackwitz and the Belarusian authors Maryna Rakhlei and Yaraslava Ananka about the relationship between this tradition and the dynamics of current conflicts, about the influence of architecture, painting and literature.
