Zum Inhalt

The book presents contributions of the international conference „Facing the Present: Transition in Post-Yugoslavia – The Artists’ View”, which took place in Graz, March 21–22 2014. It combines artists from the region who work in the fields of literature, film and theater with academics who research Balkan topics in the fields of literature, film, politics and anthropology. It brings into focus how arts and artists reflect transition and how the arts are reflected in academic works. Subjects are: War and its representation in the arts; Old/new topics in post-Yugoslav film, literature and drama; Art and the critique of ideology; New borders in life and minds; Changing gender roles.
