From revisionism to revalorization. What is the place of the monuments of the PLW and the Revolution in public discourse of Serbia?

ORGANIZATION: Grupa arhitekata – Platform Inappropriate Monuments

Museum of Yugoslavia, Belgrade Botićeva 6

6th of May 2017 at 06:00 PM


Dr Olga Manojlović Pintar, historian, Institute for Recent History of Serbia

Moderation: Dr Vladana Putnik, art historian, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade


The insight into the condition of the heritage dedicated to People’s Liberation War and Revolution in Serbia shows a broad spectrum of both positive and negative phenomena. Vandalism, deterioration, but also the examples of restoration and good maintenance, can be found throughout the country, which opens many questions regarding the present attitude towards the monuments, museums and museum settings, and the question of their future. The emergence of new actors, new – often dissonant – voices brings up the question of how to keep this heritage, whether it is possible to achieve broader social consensus on it, and if it is possible to involve the public in these processes. Due to the large number of these memorials, peculiar legal status and change of the ideological paradigm, for a while there have been discussions about the revalorization and the setup of the procedures for their guardianship. The Participants of the round table will express their oppinion on this matter, based on their extensive research and field work, the experience of the competitions, design and the completion of the museum setups.

Project partners are: Grupa arhitekata (Belgrade), SF:ius – Social fringe: interesting untold stories (Zagreb), Moderna galerija MG+MSUM (Ljubljana), Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Sarajevo), Leftist Movement Solidarity (Skopje) and KUD Anarhiv (Ljubljana).

Memorial tourism in Yugoslavia

Museum of Yugoslav History

July 15th – August 31st 2016

Opening: Friday, July 15th at 7 pm in the Museum of Yugoslav History
The exhibition On the Revolution’s road – Memorial tourism in Yugoslavia, created through the international research platform INAPPROPRIATE MONUMENTS ( will be opened on Friday, July 15th at 7 pm in the Museum of Yugoslav History.

Shortly after the end of World War II monument sites of National Liberation War became places for commemoration and were visited by a great number of Yugoslav citizens. By the mid-seventies, Partisan marches, excursions and field trips named “Paths of Revolution” have had about 2,5 million participants. By the end of the decade, this number rose to around 4 million visitors per year and monument sites became part of the tourist programs in Yugoslavia. With the examples of WWII monument sites from the entire territory of the former state, presented through the archive photo materials, the exhibition “On the Revolution’s Roads” looks into the ways monuments were included in the tourist programs and that those programs were articulated from the mid-seventies until the break of Yugoslavia. How did the notion of these memorial sites as a tourist product affect the mechanisms of their erection and management? Are these sites still a part of the tourist programs?

The artists that joined the exhibition in Ljubljana and Belgrade with video and photo artwork show us all the different sides of dealing with what once was our common or shared heritage, both artistically and politically. Their questions and answers range from socialism to capitalism, revisionism, oblivion and/or the compulsion to remember, and even towards such supposedly simple things as sightseeing, traveling, the agony of waiting, etc. The visitors will also be able to see a collection of photographs portraying memorial tourism, from the open call for the photographs from the personal archives of people from ex-Yugoslav states.  Also, a selection of 15 sculptures/models of the monuments from the collection of the Museum of Yugoslav History will be on display.

The exhibition has already been on view in Zagreb, Sarajevo, Kraljevo, Niš, Šabac and Ljubljana. In 2016, the exhibition will be shown in Belgrade, Pula, Split, Karlovac, Skopje.
