Colonial Modern: Aesthetics of the Past, Rebellions for the Futureis a reader on the relationship between modernism and the project of modernisation in architecture, as well as the intertwining of both in the context of colonialism and decolonisation. Colonial Modern is a reflection of contemporary research into architectural modernism and colonialism, and uses the thesis of “negotiated modernism” to initiate new debates on conceptions of modernism—and inevitably postmodernism—in an interdisciplinary context.
