Partisan Memorials in former Yugoslavia

While everybody is looking at new materials and modern constructions, let’s inspire ourselves in other direction: massive old concrete monuments. These are memorials in former Yugoslavia, stem of socialist modernist art in the early 60’s. They express strength and resistance. Beautiful and powerful crazy things in the middle of nowhere. They open scene for numerous associations; they could be ambassadors from far-away stars, or from a different, unrealised present.
