Lecture-Performance by Nebojsa Milikic (and one opposing character)

Nebojsa Milikic (Belgrade, Serbia)

MOMus-Experimental Center for the Arts

 

After the guided tour through the History Museum in Stockholm and many tours through the XX century suburbs of Belgrade, the (alleged and disguised) history teacher from the socialist Yugoslavia takes you on a tour through the permanent exhibition of a museum in Thessaloniki. The tour focuses on the leftist/Marxist view to history driven by a class struggle imposed and practiced with more or less sincerity and functionality in the educational system of the socialist Yugoslavia. (There is also a contrasting character accompanying the teacher – a young cultural-policy professional from Easter Europe, please ignore it.)
