During the 60s’ and 70s’ former president of Yugoslavia, Tito wanted to show the world the strength and confidence of the Socialist Republic by having sculptors and architects building those (very futuristic) monuments commemorating the Second World War. This series entitled Spomenik was photographed by Jan Kempenaers. Today these sculptures now in ruins are located in Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia and Bosnia.
These works are the result of sculptors and architects such as Dušan Džamonja , Vojin Bakic , Miodrag Zivkovic, Jordan and Iskra Grabul , names mean little to most of us, but at the time were at the center of Slavic cultural movement .
It is a shame that those monuments are abandoned, some of them are really nice..
