25 Yugoslavian Monuments Look Like They’re From the Future

May 27, 2011

I found this post on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, and thought of Mac instantly!  I could hardly believe he hadn’t posted something about these monuments on PHB already!

Back in the 60’s and 70’s, massive structures were built to commemorate the sites of WWII battles and where concentration camps once stood in former Yugoslavia.  Originally representing the strength of the Social Republic, these monuments were all but abandoned in the 1990’s.  Between 2006 and 2009, a photographer named Kempanaers made a tour of these sites, guided by a 1975 map of the memorials.  The staggering scope and beauty of these monuments are seriously other-worldly.

    I finally had a chance to really look at these sculptural monuments and they are, indeed, amazing and wonderful! Thanks for the heads-up… I wish Mac could’ve seen them, too. But let’s face it, all the amazing artifacts from that part of the world have only recently been acknowledged.

    Best,
    D
