Coventry and Dresden through Modernist postcards

Coventry and Dresden in Germany were twinned following the mass destruction of both cities from bombardments during the Second World War.  The twinning relationship is being celebrated at a talk about  modernist postcards on Friday at the Litten Tree Building (LTB) and onliine.

The talk follows the changing post war landscape and architecture by looking at the representation of both cities in postcards.

CovSoc member and local historian David Fry will take us through Coventry’s journey, focussing on the new Coventry Precinct.

Berlin based Ben Kaden will show us the changes that took place in Pragerstrasse in the Centre of Dresden.

Both will talk about the new buildings, public art, everyday life in each city and the postcards themselves.

You’ll be able to join in and ask questions at the event. You’ll also be able to see the postcards large scale, at The LTB and online throughout the Festival.

This is the first of a series of conversations planned between people in Coventry and Dresden on how they see their cities and is part of the Coventry Dresden Friendship Festival.

Friday 12 November 2021, 16:00 – 18:00

Live at the Litten Tree Building and worldwide on Zoom.
