In the summer of 2011 Emma Hedditch, Anthony Davies, Howard Slater, Jakob Jakobsen along with Henriette Heise, worked together on 'Trauma 1–11: Stories about The Copenhagen Free University and the surrounding society in the last ten years at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark. This exhibition was developed and staged as an attempt to retrace personal, collective memories within the broader (and often traumatic) framework of global events. 

Since then, Howard, Anthony and Jakob have continued to work, together with others, on Mayday Rooms, an 'organisation' set up to recover and further socialise histories of dissent and struggle. This along with Emma's long-term commitment to Feminist History/s will form the starting point of the discussion at public works.

This panel discussion will consider Moscow as a space in transition during the first half of the twentieth century (1905–35) and the post-Soviet period (from 1989). By focusing on the subject of urban planning and architecture of the city during the periods of social and political change, the panel will address the topics of the early skyscraper projects, patterns of urban Americanism, the city and commerce, and the revised architecture and planning practices in post-Soviet Moscow. The panel will explore the form and context of architectural practices during the time of ideological change, whilst highlighting patterns of rupture and continuity in Russian architectural history and its complex relationship with the West.
