Cancelled: A Hole in the Soul

Everything you wanted to know about socialist Yugoslavia (but were afraid to ask)

Since Srećko Horvat has withdrawn his participation in the 6. Berliner Herbstsalon, the event is cancelled.

Borrowing its title from a self-portrait documentary of the legendary Yugoslav filmmaker Dušan Makavejev from the 1990s, the lecture will dive into the history of socialist Yugoslavia from its creation out of the ruins of WWII to ist collapse in the bloody war of the 1990s. Starting from the guerrilla fight and antifascist resistance, through the main pillars of the Yugoslav socialist system such as self-management and Non-Aligned Movement, Srećko Horvat will explore the achievements, contradictions and failures of socialist Yugoslavia.
