Post-Conflict Monuments in Bosnia and Herzegovina : Unfinished Histories, Hardback Book

Post-Conflict Monuments in Bosnia and Herzegovina : Unfinished Histories Hardback

Part of the Routledge Focus on Art History and Visual Studies series

Description

At a time of dramatic struggles over monuments around the world, this book examines monuments that have been erected in post-conflict Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) since 1996. Examining the historical precedents for the high rate of monumentbuilding, and its links to ongoing political instability and national animosity, this book identifies the culture of remembrance in BiH as symptomatic of a broader shift: a monumentalisation and privatisation of history.

It provides an argument for how to account for the politics of contemporary nation-state formation, control of space, trauma and revisions of history in a region that has been subject to prolonged instability and crisis. This book will be of interest to scholars in contemporary art, museum studies, war and conflict studies, and European studies.
