The Aesthetic Citizen: Catachresis, fascism, and modern architecture in Thailand, 1932-1958

This talk examines the conjoined genealogies of modernism and fascism in the architecture of Thailand, a nation that was never colonized by an imperial power and which aligned itself politically and culturally with the Axis during World War II.
