The Conference: Musealisation of Yugoslavia

Freezing the common heritage or actively negotiating it?

December 2–3, 2018

Belgrade Youth Center

 

Organized by the Museum of Yugoslavia and Kiosk – Platform for Contemporary Art, the conference Musealisation of Yugoslavia – Freezing the Common Heritage or Actively Negotiating It? is part of the program that marks the centenary of the founding of Yugoslavia.

The conference will examine various states of the Yugoslav heritage, its potential of ideas and values in the present moment, and the importance that it could have in the future.

During two days, within the various panels, together with the participatnts and the audience, we will open up some of the following questions: Is the Yugoslav past already historically processed and stored in museums and archives? Is it contained in historical texts, debates, objects of numerous collections, memories? Could it be understood as a completed period in the linear flow of time that is behind us or as a political and cultural landscape that is always on the move and always in the making? Could this common heritage help us to understand some of the events in our day, to understand some of the crises that the world is going through? Could we think, on the example of the multinational, multiconfessional country with its own path to socialism, which broke down almost three decades ago, about possible solutions to the current challenges?
