Exporting Zagreb, Constructing the Present of Memory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The construction of memory and the related processes of rewriting, recalling, remembering, commemorating, exalting as well as forgetting, are ultimately realised by merging the personal with the collective lens. Over the last decades ‘new’ European spaces have undergone the accelerated reframing of their socio-political reality. Parallel with economic transition from Socialism to neo-liberal Capitalism and market economy, historical narratives have been subjected to various editorial processes. Emergence out of versions of Socialism and embedding in post-Socialist realms also requires constructing of the present. Cultural memory has, thus, been put on the agenda of public inquiry with numerous attempts at re-historicizations.
