Dust seeping from bags of concrete functions as a historical hourglass between an unclear “then” and a problematic “now.” The process points to loss, and to the collapse of the order that architecture “constructs” in its role of embodying power, be it political or economic. It conjures materiality where abstraction had prevailed. But it also questions the reversal processes taking place across the post-socialist world to a pre-revolutionary past, and its need for grounded, solid pivots.
