💡 The third international NONUMENT symposium also celebrates the release of the first NONUMENT book. At 7 pm (19:00) join us for a roundtable discussion with short presentations of the selected contributors.

Introducing NONUMENT book round table speakers:
📡 Danica Sretenović 📡

Danica Sretenović is an architect, uncertain about any principles and conceptions that appear self-evident. Readily writing about and fighting for unfit places that resist investor-centered spatial politics and collective oblivion. Author of the master thesis Acting Architecturally, which argues that architecture, if pursued in its full potential, has the strength to open up seemingly enclosed world in which we live today. Often mutates to a journalist (interviews with Anne Lacaton, Diabedo Francis Kere, Sami Rintala and Dagur Eggertsson, etc.) and to a graphic designer (2nd Chicago Architectural Biennial, 36th Mountains Festival of Illustration, Galeria Vincon etc.), just to drop a few names to otherwise nameless bio.

📡📡📡

The NONUMENT book includes essays that offer a bird’s eye view of the vast nonumental field from all across the globe, from contextualising the fetishism of both British brutalism and Yugoslav “Spomeniks” to the influence of post-colonial discourse and laissez-faire economics of the post-1990 transition from socialism to capitalism upon the changed urban space. Seven case studies discuss selected nonuments in which the residue of geopolitical turmoil, social changes and unresolved historical tensions are especially evident. The book also includes two visual essays by the Nonument Group. The outer sleeve of the book is printed with an index and a map of nonuments in Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Serbia and Slovenia. This index of 120 nonuments - the nonument database, is an archive of the ongoing multidisciplinary research of twentieth-century built spaces that have undergone a shift in meaning.

Introducing NONUMENT! Symposium keynote Speaker:
📡 Branislav Dimitrijevič 📡

The title "Egypt rather then October: Incongruences in interpreting Yugoslav national-liberation monuments, then and now" refers to the critical comment made in the early 1970s by the neo-constructvist artist Aleksandar Srnec, about the typology of erected monuments in the socialist Yugoslavia. Srnec claims that they were closer to the ancient Egyptian type of sculpture rather then to the artistic legacy of October revolution. The talk will present an analysis of discursive approaches to Yugoslav socialist monumental sculpture from the time of their instalment to their current popularity.

📡📡📡

Branislav Dimitrijević is a professor of history and theory of art at the College of Art and Design in Belgrade. He teaches and writes internationally on art and culture of socialist Yugoslavia. His most recent books are Consumed Socialism – Culture, Consumerism and Social Imagination in Yugoslavia, 1950–1974 (2016) and Dušan Makavejev’s Sweet Movie (2017). His site-specific curatorial projects include No Network (2011), the first edition of the art biennial in the nuclear bunker in Konjic, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Introducing NONUMENT Symposium Speakers:
📡 Nika van Berkel 📡

Ljubljana seems to be forgetting the times when it was a city with strong cultural identity, reflected through architecture. To be kept “alive”, cultural identity requires continuous personal contact with the residents. Bežigrad Central Stadium has been closed for the public since 2008. Today it is in a deteriorated state and has all but lost its place in the minds of Ljubljana’s inhabitants. The presented project of revitalisation of the Central Stadium brings back part of Plečnik’s heritage and improves the residents' attitudes towards this area. It proposes a city park model and a revitalisation which encompasses new programmes and discrete new volumes and greeneries to form a fresh and diverse landscape.

📡📡📡

Nika van Berkel (born 1987) graduated as an architect from the Faculty of Architecture in Ljubljana, Slovenia.⠀At the moment she is residing in Rotterdam, working as a landscape architect for West 8, an international office for urban design and landscape architecture. As part of her own studio projects, Nika is testing boundaries between architecture, object design and art. Flowing in between conceptual thinking, researching endless possibilities and finding beauty in peculiarities.

Introducing NONUMENT Symposium Speakers:
📡 Antonio Grgić 📡

Is it a coincidence that during the coronavirus pandemic a wave of the destruction of monuments throughout the world happened? The author argues that the demolition of the monument is the result of several pandemic-related factors starting with the crisis of the economic and political paradigm of globalization and liberal democracy. With the lockdown the space of traditional models of political negotiation is narrowed, and as a replacement the public space marked by symbolic political content has taken the place of political confrontation of different political views.

📡📡📡

Antonio Grgić graduated from the Zagreb Faculty of Architecture and is currently PhD candidate at the Institute of Architectural Theory, Art History and Cultural Studies in Graz. He is a member of the Croatian Philosophers Society, of the supervisory board of The Croatian Association of Artists of Applied Arts and of the expert council of the Croatian Architects Association.
