Kaitlyn Miklovich: Zagreb Spring School “Context Matters” Review

Zagreb Spring School: Context Matters | April 28 – May 3 2017

Zagreb Spring School opened April 28th with six architecture students in attendance: 3 each from University of Detroit Mercy and University of Zagreb. It began with a historical context lecture by Josip Jagić on Yugoslavia in WWII. It gave the American students a brief glimpse into the past of the prior state. Moving on there were lectures on the Development of Memorials and Monuments between 1940 and 1960, Development of Memorial Areas & Parks and lastly The Destruction of Partisan Monuments. The lectures flowed into each other, speaking first to how there was to be 6000 monuments erected in Croatia between 1946-1965 and how there were different periods, such as abstraction of the monuments. Secondly about how the communities financed their own monuments and what they stood for–for the future and not just a place to lay flowers. Monuments grew in their functions as well, adding things so that people would stay, such as libraries, theaters and hotels. The last lecture expressed the downfall of the monuments beginning in 1991, where 3000 monuments were destroyed by many forces, and a Typology of Deterioration arose. Ending the first day were two workshops with Erika Lindsay, a photography workshop on the different rules and tips of placement of subject and balance, as well as settings and what they affect, then a graphics workshop sowing the many principles of design.

Saturday included two tours, the first half of the day was spent at The Memorial Park Dotrščina, followed by lunch, then a tour of Zagreb’s City Center. We learned a lot about the different meanings the abstract, crystal forms in The Memorial Park Dotrščina took on and their significance at the time they were built. Additionally, we learned about the history of the city center and its specific construction.

Sunday, we had group discussions over readings pertaining to monuments and the different emotions they evoke. We read: The Role of the Counter-Monument Movement in Germany’s Collective Memory, How Societies Remember, Reflections on Urbanism, Monument, Territory and the Mediation of War Memory in Socialist Yugoslavia, Between Memory and History and Memorijali Revolucije. These readings sparked deep conversation about many monuments, both standing and demolished

Monday and Tuesday were the two biggest days, the first including the tour of Petrova Gora, both to the Partisan Hospital and Vojin Bakic’s monument. They were equally just as amazing, the history and need for the Partisan Hospital and its surrounding buildings, and the monument itself architecturally grand in its own way, they are mutually important to the people, past and present. Tuesday began with a presentation of a project: Festivalization of a Neighborhood and Anti-gentrification Insights by Dafne Berc, Bojan Mucko and Dino Belamarić. After that we went straight to work in international pairs on our projects and presentations on our choice of revitalization projects for Vojin Bakic’s monument to successfully end the workshop.

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

ROUND TABLE “From revisionism to revalorization. What is the place of the monuments of the PLW and the Revolution in public discourse of Serbia?”
Museum of Yugoslavia, Belgrade Botićeva 6
6th of May 2017 at 06:00 PM

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 opinion on this matter, based on their extensive research and field work, the experience of the competitions, design and the completion of the museum setups.

Erika Lindsay: “War, Revolution and Memory” Conference Review

International Conference War, Revolution and Memory: Post-War Monuments in Post-Communist Europe
Zagreb, 17 – 18 February 2017

War, Revolution and Memory: Post-War Monuments in Post-Communist Europe attracted attendees and presenters across western, central and eastern Europe as well as the United States; among them, research fellows, students, faculty, editors and curators representing a wide variety of disciplinary viewpoints. Many researchers working on these topics work between disciplines ranging from; archeology to urbanism, heritage protection to engineering , architecture to cultural studies , memory studies to law, policy to history, to name a few. Over the course of the two-day conference, many monuments and memorial sites were discussed through the lens of; heritage protection and management, the effect of changing political climates on the memory of the past, impact shifting memory of the past has on memorial spaces, reinterpreting monuments in the post-communist/socialist context and understanding new modes of commemorative practice.

One of the main themes echoed over the weekend was the notion that policy alone cannot safeguard socialist heritage from the fallout of negative attitudes produced by nationalist narratives. These narratives foster contempt for the past which leads to neglect, vandalism, erasure and harmful re-interpretation of history. While many post-war monuments are considered protected heritage in their respective countries, many are threatened by a lack of support from governing entities at the local, regional and national level. Under the best of these circumstances, the site is minimally maintained, does not appear on tourism maps or in guide books and has an outdated exhibit that is difficult to access. Some monuments are left in a state of disrepair due to lack of funds or municipal interest necessary to upkeep. In the worst cases, iconoclasm threatens the survival of these sites. Neither protected from human destruction, nor natural forces, the sites continue to degrade.

Of particular note was the discussion which followed a reshuffled presentation on the inability of the state to offer protections from politically motivated vandals for the Partisan Necropolis in Mostar. This presentation was moved to a segment focused on holocaust heritage and memory surrounding sites in Poland and the Ukraine. Placing these disparate heritage sites in dialogue with one another served to provide contrast during the lively discussion regarding heritage, authenticity and preservation of memorial sites. Szmygin, who serves as the president of ICOMOS Poland, took a somewhat radical stance in the discussion, stating that the de-politicization of heritage is necessary to guarantee its survival for future generations. Given his disciplinary training, recent political shifts in Poland, as well as the galvanizing narrative woven by the collective traumas of the Second World War, this standpoint is reified. However, with the necropolis in Mostar as exemplar, protection is not limited to mitigating degradation from the passage of time, it must also protect against extreme forms of iconoclasm aimed to disrupt commemoration at the site. In this instance and other instances where heritage is contested and viewed as belonging to an opposing ideological group by some, it is impossible to separate politics from heritage protection. It was further explained that in protecting heritage without political context, the conceptual apparatus is lost. Sites are rendered illegible, stripped of their agency when read through the lens of current nationalist ideology without understanding the socialist contexts in which they were created. This raises an important question — what is the aim of heritage preservation? If authenticity matters, wouldn’t the preservation of socio-political context around which these sites and monuments were constructed be rendered the most authentic act? If sites are depoliticized, what is the point of protecting them?

It comes as no surprise that physical removal of a monument from a site produces cultural amnesia, and with it an erasure of the significance of the site of remembrance over time. Far more destructive and long lasting is the reprogramming of collective memory. Some presentations looked at what happens when collective memory is hijacked and supplanted with a new decontextualized reinterpretation of the past. Circumstances such as shifting political attitudes toward socialist heritage and the reinterpretation of history, have produced conditions which threaten longevity of memorial sites. In the post-communist context, monuments erected to commemorate the end of WWII in Sophia have come to signify a difficult Soviet past, striping the city and its inhabitants of a place to commemorate the war. Similarly at risk is the cultural memory of WWII in Slovenia, which has undergone significant revision in the last 25 years, through the erection of “Home Guard” plaques. These plaques alchemize Slovene Nazi collaborators into civil war heroes, in turn negating the memory of the Slovene Partisans who fought against fascism. In a reaction to the lack of funding to protect partisan heritage from the war, a local anti-fascist group in Croatia restored a partisan hospital using private funds and volunteer labor to renovate and rebuild the building as an independent grassroots project.

Also discussed was the extreme attempt by the Macedonian government to shape the cultural memory of its people by erecting towering neoclassical monuments and wrapping the existing socialist context in matched false facades. This act of revisionist cultural erasure of Skopje’s socialist past has unintentionally produced a kitschy neoclassical construct reminiscent of a theme park. The edits to Skopje’s Macedonia Square, more cheap knockoff than passable fake, have failed in their attempt to falsify authenticity. In a similar attempt at wiping public memory clean, communist era monuments from Budapest were ousted from their original context and placed at the edge of the city in a new “designed” configuration. At Memento Park, communist kitsch is purposefully employed in an attempt to contextualize the monuments for an outside audience composed of foreign tourists and young people, too young to remember communism.

Looking back, the strength of this conference was the creation of a forum for researchers from disparate, yet related disciplines to come together for transdisciplinary dialogue and debate on communist heritage from the post-war period. Presenters sought to comprehend memorial sites in their post-socialist context; outlining policies which extend protection to these sites and the socio-economic factors which threaten sites of socialist heritage; such as lack of economic support, changes in commemorative practice, shifting public perception of the past and revisionist historiography. Experimentation with how presentations are grouped could prove beneficial; citing the example of the “misplaced” Mostar presentation, placing research topics with unrelated elements in dialogue will yield productive discussions and increase audience engagement. Overall, SF:ius succeeded in producing a space for vibrant, interdisciplinary discussion of a broad range of topics related to memory and monuments in the European post-communist context. The high volume of presenters in attendance at other sessions was telling, as this interdisciplinary approach is a welcome respite from the myopic disciplinary-specific focus of many conferences. Ultimately, the success of this conference lies in the provocations made and the fact that more questions were raised than answers provided. Analyzing this post-socialist context there is no way to ignore the widespread ideological shift of politics. As borders tighten, differences become emphasized and nationalist tendencies make their way into populist thinking; there doesn’t seem to be a better time to discuss and advocate for this heritage.

WAR, REVOLUTION AND MEMORY: Post-War Monuments in Post-Communist Europe

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
WAR, REVOLUTION AND MEMORY: Post-War Monuments in Post-Communist Europe
RAT, REVOLUCIJA I SJEĆANJE: Poratni spomenici u post-komunističkoj Europi

17 – 18 February 2017
Mimara Museum
Roosevelt Square 5, Zagreb, Croatia

World War II caused a collective trauma in the memory of Europeans, which resulted in the erection of countless monuments all over Europe to commemorate the events and battles as well as the civilian and military victims. In the period of almost 45 years, numerous memorial sites were created in the Communist Europe. Contrary to the dominant belief that the monuments in the Eastern Bloc and Non-aligned Yugoslavia were created exclusively in the spirit of Socialist Realism and erected by order of state authorities, typologically and stylistically these monuments form a heterogeneous group, and were erected both by the state and the local communities.

The decline of Communism and the introduction of the market economy and multi-party system in the newly emerged countries resulted in multiple effects, both on the institutional and symbolic level. On the institutional and legislative level, it brought significant changes within the legal framework, functioning of institutions and civil services of the post-socialist countries. On the symbolic level this led to rejection of the bearers of symbolic capital of the former system.

Taking into account the scope of this heritage, the efforts invested in rediscovery, protection and conservation treatment of memorials require significant funds. But before raising the question of funding, one should ask if and for whom this disputed heritage should be restored? In what ways did the change of political paradigm make these monuments undesirable in the post-socialist countries? Have processes of denial and suppression contributed to the cancellation of an inherent ideological charge of these monuments? If so, are we allowed to treat them exclusively as aesthetic objects, particularly when they are preserved in fragments? Should these monuments, as relics of a forgotten past, be seen as a part of the tourism industry? Could the damaged or destroyed artefacts be restored to their original state or should the conservation treatment also commemorate the period of denial and suppression? What is the role of heritage communities in relation to survival and revival of this heritage?

The conference will present 23 lectures by European and USA researchers and experts.
The official language of the conference is English. The entrance is free.

World War II caused a collective trauma in the memory of Europeans, which resulted in the erection of countless monuments all over Europe to commemorate the events and battles as well as the civilian and military victims. In the period of almost 45 years, numerous memorial sites were created in the Communist Europe. Contrary to the dominant belief that the monuments in the Eastern Bloc and Non-aligned Yugoslavia were created exclusively in the spirit of Socialist Realism and erected by order of state authorities, typologically and stylistically these monuments form a heterogeneous group, and were erected both by the state and the local communities.

Since their creation, and due to the fact that they were conceived as “intentional monuments“ (in the sense of Riegl’s gewollte Denkmale), a number of governmental regulations have been adopted in order to ensure that this heritage is adequately protected and maintained.

The decline of Communism and the introduction of the market economy and multi-party system in the newly emerged countries resulted in multiple effects, both on the institutional and symbolic level. On the institutional and legislative level, it brought significant changes within the legal framework, functioning of institutions and civil services of the post-socialist countries. On the symbolic level this led to rejection of the bearers of symbolic capital of the former system.

Therefore, the perception of monuments created in the period of Real Socialism to commemorate World War II was rapidly changing, and the meaning they conveyed, as well as their memorial and aesthetic value were being questioned, challenged and/or denied. Often violent, break with the former regime resulted in their relocation, temporary or permanent removal from the public space and vandalism or destruction. Norbert Huse tried to define these phenomena by devising the category of uncomfortable architectural monuments (unbequeme Baudenkmale). Twenty-seven years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, we are still witnessing the denial, destruction and marginalization of these monuments as unacceptable, unsightly, totalitarian, etc.

The attempts to revaluate this heritage, as well as to develop different strategies of its public presentation, differ from state to state, and the criteria and guidelines that should be used to devise a “new“ perception, followed by the management and maintenance of the denied monuments, mainly depend on the political and economic situation in different countries.

Taking into account the scope of this heritage, the efforts invested in rediscovery, protection and conservation treatment of memorials require significant funds. But before raising the question of funding, one should ask if and for whom this disputed heritage should be restored? In what ways did the change of political paradigm make these monuments undesirable in the post-socialist countries? Have processes of denial and suppression contributed to the cancellation of an inherent ideological charge of these monuments? If so, are we allowed to treat them exclusively as aesthetic objects, particularly when they are preserved in fragments? Should these monuments, as relics of a forgotten past, be seen as a part of the tourism industry? Could the damaged or destroyed artefacts be restored to their original state or should the conservation treatment also commemorate the period of denial and suppression? What is the role of heritage communities in relation to survival and revival of this heritage?

These questions will be discussed at an international conference in the following sessions:

1) MONUMENT PROTECTION AND TRANSITION: preservation of World War II monuments in the former Eastern Bloc and Yugoslavia and the impact of recent political history on the reception of monuments (revaluation processes, historical revisionism and perception, memorial and aesthetic evaluation)

2) PRACTICE OF PROTECTION AND CHANGES TO THE LEGAL AND INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK: legislative changes and their impact on the issues of jurisdiction and management, ownership, etc. (role of management in the processes of rediscovery, research and conservation)

3) EXAMPLES OF MANAGEMENT: the models of managing monuments and memorial complexes, good and bad practices, socialist heritage and tourism

4) CONSERVATION: the problems of maintenance, interpretation and representation of World War II monuments, use of traditional methodologies within a changed system of values.

The conference is organised by NGO SF:ius – Social Fringe: interesting untold stories in cooperation with ICOMOS Croatia as a part of the international project INAPPROPRIATE MONUMENTS.
The official language of the conference is English.
The conference organizers will subsidize the cost of accommodation for non-Zagreb participants.

Please submit 500-word abstracts and a short bio (in English) to sfius@sfius.org by November 1st 2016. The successful participants will be notified by November 15th.
