The visible traces of the Soviet period in the Baltic landscapes include diverse and numerous technologically political infrastructures, including remnants of abandoned, collapsed or destroyed military buildings. This online discussion addresses the ways of working with the post-cold war heritages from the perspective of environmental history, technology studies, as well as contemporary heritage conservation and art.

This is the fourth discussion of the research and exhibition project “Reflecting Post-Socialism through Post-Colonialism in the Baltics,” organised by the Latvian Center for Contemporary Art in Riga in collaboration with Kumu Art Museum and the research project “Estonian Environmentalism in the 20th Century” (both Tallinn). The project analyses the imprints of post-socialism and post-colonialism in the Baltic region, here exploring them through the prism of environmental history and the current ecological crisis.
