“Because, really, nothing makes less sense and
nothing is more dangerous for the Socialism then
restraining the initiative by using ready-made, bureaucratic
forms and administrative measures in
the field of human intellect and thinking.”
Milovan Djilas, from the speech given on the III Plenary
Meeting of CK KPJ, Belgrade, December, 1949
*Fiery greetings is a part of an art-based research
project proposing one possible reading of the
Yugoslav socialist state, its dominant models and
legacy, focusing on the representative portrait of
the childhood. At the same time, the project is
questioning the possibility of the collective and
individual memory of the country that no longer
exists by researching official archives, most importantly
the one of the Museum of Yugoslav History
based in Belgrade, Serbia.
