The materials I work with are debris. In our part of the world certain ideas have been removed and abolished after major socio-political changes. It can be argued that they are eliminated by other facts and events, replaced with new values, systems and meanings. These papers illustrate the conflict between personal memory and political history. Photos, slide shows and objects illustrate fragments of the potential world. The makers are here to allow us to take on the position of a thinker, a creator; a phenomenological step backwards for a better understanding of things. At this point they are simple, affordable and mobile; evociraju kombinaciju rada i igre. This is a strategy for the demonumentation of ideas and systems. (author’s text)
