    Massive concrete art

  • Sewingthe60s

    During the 1960s and 70s, thousands of monuments commemorating the Second World War called ‘Spomeniks’ were built throughout the former Yugoslavia; monumental sculptures with angular geometry echoing the shapes of flowers, crystals, viruses or DNA. Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers travelled the Balkans photographing these objects.

    ABANDONED! WWII Monument in memorial complex Valley of the heroes, at Tjentište, National park Sutjeska  in Bosnia and Herzegovina (ex-Yugoslavia region)

  • shane walter

    Commissioned by former Yugoslavian president, Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place, these now forgotten structures stand empty and without the significance it once had decades ago. Designed by different sculptors and architects, the strong and powerful blending of art and architecture come together in these monuments to convey the sense of confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic.
