Performing Marxist Heritage is an ongoing research project departing from a “phantom memory of Marxism” as experienced after the collapse of socialist Yugoslavia, actualized in a critique of contemporary capitalism and concretized in lecture-performances, reading groups, discussions, collective working sessions, and contextually specific labour actions. The workshop Future Read in Concrete and Stone takes three Yugoslav modernist monuments/land art memorials of WWII anti-fascist struggle and communist revolution (Sutjeska, Kozara and Kadinjača) as case studies and possible scores for performance. An analysis of current socio-political condition is proposed based on these art works as examples and their relation to ideology, and participant’s artistic practice as propositions for the future.

Based on research for performance in the making of the same title.
