Architecture of Remembrance - The Monuments of Bogdan Bogdanovic

Architektur der Erinnerung - Die Denkmäler des Bogdan Bogdanovic

Between the 1950s and the 1980s Bogdan Bogdanovic ´, the architect, urbanist and man of letters, university professor and former mayor of Belgrade, created large-scale surrealist monuments against war and destruction, which were dispersed throughout the whole of Yugoslavia. His conciliatory memorials - some show the dimensions of ancient cities, others are genuine land art projects - rejected not only the socialistrealist doctrine of the era, but also any political or clerical appropriation. Already the subject of hostility from nationalist zealots even during the communist regime, as a humanist Bogdanovic´ was threatened with death in 1991 when civil war broke out in Yugoslavia and his work became the target of wanton destruction. This portrays a selection of his - in art history terms - unique and until now inadequately documented monuments for the first time.
