Women’s creativity since the Modern Movement – MoMoWo
Women’s creativity since the Modern Movement – MoMoWo – is a large-scale cooperation project co-funded by the European Union Creative Culture Programme under the Culture Sub-Programme. In the years 2014 - 2018 it was covered by the Politecnico di Torino (Italy). The Faculty of Architecture and Design of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava and researchers of the Department of Architecture of the Institute of Architecture of the Slovak Academy of Sciences also collaborated on the project.
MoMoWo focused on women's work in design, architecture and urban planning, landscape architecture and engineering. The aim of the project was to highlight the role of women, who have so far been neglected in Europe's cultural heritage. In addition - understanding history as a living material - the project seeks to promote the value of works designed by women, both past and present, and encourage future generations of architects and designers.
The project was directly followed by research of the work of women architects in Slovakia in the 20th century, realised at the Department of Architecture of the Institute of History of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. The result was a series of exhibitions and publications that presented the architectural work of the most important women representatives of Slovak architecture. Exploring the work of women in Slovak architecture is also one of the basic research areas of the Department of Architecture of the Institute of History SAS.
