ARCHITECTURE AS THE SCENOGRAPHY OF POLITICAL EVENTS OF THE 20TH CENTURY

  • Mazalan, P.
Abstract:
During the historical development of drama, theatrical performances took place in various settings: simultaneous medieval stages, illusional and perspective Renaissance stages, Humanist stages of palaces and academies, decorated Baroque stages. The space of drama has always retained its detachment, being a symbolic world. Theatre has the biggest power and potential to discuss the most delicate and complicated political and social issues. Its role is to be document and communication channel. Since the beginning of the 20th century theatre has started to use completely different form of its expression tools. Architecture in the context of our study will be represented by the scenography. Architecture will be explored herein in relation to space and its inherent characteristics by means of heterotopy and synaesthesia, space as a sphere of imagination and the audience with its specific role. The study does not understand the classical term architecture as the building and scenography as a staging of decorative mise-en-scéne. Can architecture be turned into a psychoanalytical laboratory? This paper analyses architecture as stage design of political-architectural contexts by the work of some totalitarian political regimes of the 20th century in the central Europe.
