While driven interacting quantum matter is generically subject to heating, certain classes of systems evade this paradigm. In this talk, I will discuss one such class: periodically driven critical (1 + 1)-dimensional systems with spatially modulated couplings. Such systems exhibit both nonheating and heating phases.  Heating is signaled by the emergence of Schwarzschild horizons an effective curved space-time. This phenomenology is deeply linked to the notion of parametric resonance.  The Hawking temperature serves as an order parameter which distinguishes between heating and non-heating phases. I will briefly discuss the case of quasiperiodic driving and the role of dissipation.
