Socialist Yugoslavia and her Monuments

So much of the worlds Communist architecture and monuments have long been forgotten.

I have always been fascinated with the oppressive duality of these concrete structures that are in some cases intimidatingly beautiful. 

Concrete wings, abstract fists, commissioned by Tito commemorating WWII,  conceptual flowers,  and some even resembling ancient Pagan symbols, grace the countrysides of these forgotten places.

The MoMA will be hosting an exhibition exploring the former Yugoslavia's concrete structures, Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948-1980 opening this summer 15 July 2018 and running until 13 January 2019. 

The exhibition takes a look at Yugoslavia's urban planning,  while celebrating its architect's and their ongoing influence post Communist era.
