Project Yugoslavia involves 100 participants of various ages, histories and backgrounds from the region of the former Yugoslavia. Instead of posing specific questions, every participant was given a card with information about an object from the Museum’s collection containing the object’s description, date or period when it was made, and its origin. Through this method we aimed to translate the Museum’s collection of material traces of the past (collection of artifacts) to the form of living comments, ideas, and thoughts for the future.→
