From the vysotki of Stalinist Moscow and the TV tower of Communist Prague; from Mussolini’s EUR and Hitler’s Westwall; to Berlin’s Checkpoint Charlie and Charlie Chaplin’s Great Dictator, we bring you our un-redacted Dictator issue. Can the architecture built under Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini be expediently forgotten? Do the buildings of these Dictators owe a debt to socially progressive Modernism? Can we really define such a thing as Dictator architecture and how has it influenced subsequent generations of architects? Have we been tinged by a touch of Ostalgia and should we take heed of a little man with a small moustache? The latest issue of The Modernist goes in search of the Dictators’ influence on our modern world.
The Modernist Magazine is a quarterly publication about 20th century modernist architecture and design. Published in the North of England and now spreading its tentacles across the world.
