By using memory theory, critical discourse and multimodal analysis, the article examines the narratives of the exhibition “Yugoslavia: From the Beginning to the End” held at the Museum of Yugoslav History in Belgrade in order to identify and analyze the Museum’s discourse in the post-Yugoslav transitional context of the Republic of Serbia. The article tries to demystify the hidden text on Yugoslavia in the exhibition’s catalog and on the Museum’s website. Within the complex context of public narratives on Yugoslav history, and of the position of the Museum as a public institution, the exhibition shows strong convergence with revisionist hegemonic narratives, whilst simultaneously creating a dialogue with counter-memory and nostalgic narratives and thus opening its space up for further conversations on the Yugoslav collective memory.

U post-socijalističkom metaprostoru nepostojeće Jugoslavije umjetničke prakse opstaju i komuniciraju u istom prostoru u kojemu su djelovale i prije raspada države, jednako kao i prije njenog nastanka. Istovjetni prostor, prožet službenim diskursima negacije socijalističke povijesti, podjednako koliko i njenom banalizacijom prevodeći je u pop kulturu, kroz odnos prema toj "nepostojećoj" prošlosti u procesima identitetske formacije sudjeluje u umjetničkim praksama koje se bave "imaginarnim" povijestima i prostorima SFRJ, otvarajući na taj način pitanje imaginarnosti/realnosti jugoslovenskog (kulturnog) prostora. U ovom radu, s fokusom na Srbiju i Hrvatsku, želimo pokušati mapirati različite načine, oblike i medije na koje i u kojima se Jugoslavija pojavljuje u suvremenoj umjetničkoj proizvodnji, kroz prizmu teorija sećanja i otvaranja pitanja učinkovitosti nostalgije kao potencijalno subverzivnog elementa umjetničkog djela. Kroz pregled manjeg broja umjetničkih post-jugoslovenskih praksi, mlađe generacije umetnika, pokušavamo identifikovati politički stav ove generacije prema Jugoslaviji i revizionističkim državnim narativima. Drugim riječima; što nam suvremena umjetnička proizvodnja koja tematizira Jugoslaviju govori o suvremenom društvu i meta-prostoru kojega nastanjujemo (i obratno)?

Über welches Jugoslawien sprechen wir überhaupt? Es existierten zwei solche Staatengebilde. Das Königreich der Serben, Kroaten und Slowenen entstand 1918 und wurde 1929 in Königreich Jugoslawien umbenannt. 1943 wurde das Demokratische Föderative Jugoslawien/die Föderative Volksrepublik Jugoslawien gegründet, beziehungsweise ab 1963 die Sozialistische Föderative Republik Jugoslawien. Aber, Jugoslawien ist nicht nur der Name dieser Staatengebilde, international anerkannter Grenzen irgendwelcher imaginärer Gemeinschaften erdachter Traditionen, noch ist er die Antithese zu geschickt aufgenötigten ethno-nationalistischen Identitäten, die dem Zerfall des Staates dienten.

« Nous vous avons construit des villes » : les contradictions du socialisme en Yougoslavie Une fois n’est pas coutume, une exposition à Belgrade rend hommage de façon intelligente à la Yougoslavie socialiste et à son projet émancipateur, sans passer pour autant sous silence les nombreux dysfonctionnements du système. De quoi tirer les leçons d’un échec et ouvrir l’horizon à un indispensable espace de dialogue régional.

On 2 April 2017 Alexander Vučić became President of Serbia, winning the first round of the elections, obtaining a score of 55%, and leading in all districts of the country. The public perception and representation of Vučić within Serbia is biased by wide constraints on mainstream media, whereas foreign commentators have difficulties in defining his profile in between his former far-right party affiliation, his being “pro-European”, and the concerns about an authoritarian drift in the country. In this episode, we approach the background and the output of this event. By expanding the discussion beyond the domain of party politics and voting tendencies, we explore some aspects of Serbia’s economic landscape after the fall of Yugoslavia and embed more recent trends in a regional context. Most important, we discuss some emerging forms of social movements and their claims by introducing the impact of some factors such as the attitude of the youth, the perspective of the diaspora and the role that “Yugonostalgia” plays in contemporary politics.

Taking into account the specificities of (post) Yugoslav neostalgia (Velikonja, 2010) there is a strong need for theory to take a closer look at the multiplicities of both Yugoslavia and its nostalgia(s). Introducing the political aspect of nostalgia, with particular focus on the last generation of pioneers (born between 1974 and 1982), we are leaving the banalizing official post-communist discourses (Buden, 2012) on nostalgic transition losers and those academic discourses that deny nostalgic sentiments of the ability to generate a political movement or a programme (Horvat and Štiks, 2015). Within revisionist political and cultural discourses, nostalgia emerges, through Svetlana Boym’s concept of counter-memory (Boym, 2001), in public spaces without state control and without the control of dominant discourses of political elites, and as such is being translated into reflective nostalgia (Boym, 2001, p.49). Through this reflection, the last generation of pioneers creates memory narratives that interweave the political and the nostalgic. These narratives perform as “noeuds de mémoire” – exceeding attempts of territorialisation and identitarian reduction (Rothberg, 2010) and through their multidirectionality (Rothberg, 2009), they emerge as meta-national Yugonostalgic memory, creating a new paradigm in the political field. This essay aims to provide further reflection on possible theoretical frameworks for understanding the phenomenon of Yugonostalgia and its place within the political imaginary of the last pioneers. Remaining embedded in research and theory, I have decided to structure this article as an invitation to a dialogue, rather than a fully rounded academic article. The present political phenomena demand new perspectives and thinking about Yugonostalgia remains a challenge.

Les pays en transition, notamment postsocialistes, se trouvent dans des processus difficiles et oppressifs pour leurs populations. Les effets de ces transitions, plus de dix ans après la disparition du rideau de fer, se montrent imprévisibles. Face aux difficultés de la transition, un phénomène de nostalgie postsocialiste s’est développé, en dépit de toutes les divergences qui agitent les pays de l’Est de l’Europe (...).
