FROM POSTWAR TO POSTMODERN - 20th CENTURY BUILT HERITAGE
WW divided the Baltic Sea region into East and West for 50 years. It was a
period of reconstruction and intensive development which reshaped urban and
rural environment in both sides of Iron Curtain. Thereby, the post-war planning
and buildings are prevalent in our societies. Today, they face today great
Baltic Sea Region Cultural Forum will discuss the historical legacy of the so
called welfare-state. How is the post-war twentieth century planning and
architecture valued today? How do we interpret symbolic and political values of
these neighbourhoods? What are the sustainable methods of preservation and the challenges of authentictiy and adaptive re-use?
The BSR Working Group on 20th c. heritage, the Swedish National Heritage Board and the host, the Archaeological State Department of Schleswig-Holstein, have been in charge of Forum preparations in cooperation with the Monitoring Group.

BSR COMMON TIES: SUMMER 2016 VOYAGE
In a time of increasing tension between East
and West in Europe it is more important than ever to communicate and promote
the cultural and historical ties between all the countries of the Baltic Sea Region.
As a part of the 6th Baltic Sea Heritage
Forum programme a Norwegian historic ship m/s Gamle Oksøy started her voyage in
June 2016 from Bergen, Norway, to visit ports and meet the public in nine
countries around the Baltic Sea. On board there are exhibitions and film
screenings focusing on maritime heritage and coastal culture.
The initiative behind the voyage comes from
the BSR Working Group on Coastal Culture, consisting of national maritime
museums and state cultural heritage authorities from Poland, Lithuania, Latvia,
Estonia, Finland, Sweden; Germany and Norway.
An important goal of the voyage is to inspire
the development of partnership between museums, cultural heritage institutions
and NGOs in the participating countries, and to show the historical relations
between the people of the region.
The films and stories from the travelling exhibition
will be presented at the 6th Baltic Sea Heritage Forum in Kiel in
