Ideologies leave their mark not just on certain forms of government and political systems (of thought). In fact, the values and convictions of a society follow the concrete structures of people's everyday lives. Buildings and roads, living and working quarters in a city influence not only milieu and habitus but also the attitudes and morals of their inhabitants. In three panel discussions, architects, city planners and curators address the multi-faceted relationships between architecture, ideology and art.
