Remaking History: Tracing Politics in Urban Space

Aleksandar Obradović

What role do street names play in building national identities? We are looking for answers in the examples of two world-famous cities of the former Yugoslavia: its capital and the birthplace of the Non-Aligned Movement - Belgrade; and the host city of the 1984 Winter Olympics - Sarajevo. This study is a journey through three decades of the changing narratives and messages carried by public space in metropolises that have sacrificed multiculturalism in their search for ethnic identities.
