Our collective memory is shaped by the ideology of the day. The politics of memory enables a regime to record its version of the past. History is conditioned by this shared remembrance.
The decaying brutalist monuments from Tito's Yugoslavia form the backdrop for Monumentalism - an exhibition curated by Anthony Bautovich at Kudos Gallery opening on Tuesday the 8th of November from 5-7pm.
Designed and built in the ‘60s and ‘70s these gestures to modernism are located at sites of battles and concentration camps commemorating the victims of fascism in WWII.
