    Gold in Book / Fine Art

In former Yugoslavian languages, Spomenici means monuments. The architecture of Spomenici is associated with the movement called "brutalism". While some don't exist anymore, as they were destroyed during the latest Balkan wars, others are falling apart, taken over by nature, because of governments in denial of their past. This book is not a documentary exercise. I approached Spomenici from a fine art point of view. While working on spomenici, I also came across several amazing brutalist buildings.
