Bratstvo / Jedinstvo

The name and motif for the project (Bratstvo / Jedinstvo) come from the "Brotherhood and Unity Highway” [1], built in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to connect, with its 1180 kilometers, the six regions that formed the federation, its name referring to the Yugoslav national motto. From the border with Austria, this highway passes Ljubljana, Zagreb, Belgrade and Skopje as far as the frontier with Greece in the southeast. It was the first and only modern highway in the country.

Using the highway as a way of approaching the territory through the experience as an author on a road trip, in Bratstvo / Jedinstvo the old Yugoslavia is narrated from the personal encounter with the latent reality of the country found in the current states that used to form Yugoslavia.

This on-site experience is complemented by a parallel work of investigation, thanks to which a diversity of archival materials have been collected that bring-to-present the past and the current Yugoslavia: a country that, although it does not exist politically, is still present in the imaginary collective of the region.
