Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw released four books dedicated to the oeuvre of the Hansens: Leaven. On Zofia and Oskar Hansens by Filip Springer (together with Karakter Publishers, 2013), Oskar Hansen – Opening Modernism. On Open Form Architecture, Art and Didactics edited by Aleksandra Kędziorek and Łukasz Ronduda (2014), Team 10 East. Revisionist Architecture in Real Existing Modernism edited by Łukasz Stanek (2014) and House as Open Form. Hansens’ Summer Residence in Szumin (together with Karakter Publishers, 2014).
OSKAR HANSEN – OPENING MODERNISM, which took place on June 5-7, 2013 at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, was the first international conference devoted to the oeuvre of Oskar Hansen.
Gathering outstanding researchers in art and architecture history, the conference provided a platform to investigate anew selected aspects of Hansen’s practice – position it among the work of other Central-Eastern European architects connected with Team 10; discuss designs that merge architecture and the media; and last but not least, depart from investigations into his teaching activity at Warsaw’s Academy of Fine Arts in order to enquire if a Hansen’s tradition exists in visual arts. The conference was accompanied by research workshops TEAM 10 EAST (July 8, 2013).
Symposium HOUSES OF ARCHITECTS – LABORATORIES OF IDEAS (November 21-22, 2013), focused on the Hansen House in Szumin, the Wittgenstein House in Vienna, the Schindler House and the Eames House in Los Angeles, attempted to reveal the specificity of the residences built by architects for themselves and was a preparatory event before the opening of the Hansens’ house to the general public.
