WORKS
What disappears in the constant reframing of our culture?

Site specific action

This work was a site specific action I realised in town of Kotor. The action involves writing eleven words in different locations of the city, which together form the sentence contained in the title of the work. It deals with re-examining culture and cultural heritage. What is lost in order for culture, as a whole, to be possible within the ruling ideology and serve it? My starting point for the work was how architecture from different historical periods of Montenegro are treated. While the old part of the city is being preserved as a high point of Kotors culture, buildings from Yugoslavian period are being neglected, torn down and reapropriated. Inside the current dominant Ideology of Montenegro there is no place for communist history.
