Home of the Resistance
In Kumrovec in 1974, communist authorities built the Memorial Home for WWII Resistance Fighters and Youth of Yugoslavia, a building that has lain dormant since its closure in 1991. Ivan Ramljak’s atmospheric spatial study Home of the Resistance (Ivan Ramljak, 2018, Croatia) stares through the modernist architectural elegance to reveal, within its ruined walls, the spectres of the past.

Journalist and writer Dan Hancox will join us at the next Stadtklang music evening at the Arcola Theatre Bar in Dalston to discuss and explore his critically acclaimed book Inner City Pressure: The Story of Grime (William Collins, 2018). This weaves the explosive story of London’s grime music, and its stunning triumph against the odds, into the history of the 21st-century city, where gentrification, urban protest, pirate radio, police harassment, riots and tragedy are intertwined in the evolution of this stunning and alien style of grassroots urban music.
