Pokretači #31 Donald Niebyl – Spomenik Database / Illinois, USA

Donald Niebyl founded and manages Spomenik Database, a website dedicated to monumental Yugoslav WWII memorials. Donald not only travelled up and down former Yugoslavia visiting monuments (or ‘spomeniks’ as they are called in local languages), but he also researched and wrote detailed history of many of them, soon to be published as a book – ‘Spomenik Monument Database’ (pre-order on Amazon).

Notes

A view of the #abandoned central #monument of the Korčanica #memorial zone at a #WWII #spomenik complex, located in the Grmeč Mountains south of the village of Lušci Planaka, #bosnia, that marks the site of an expansive Partisan hospital complex which existed here during the region's National Liberation War (People's Liberation Struggle) (1941-1945).

A photo I took today of the #WW2 #memorial #sculpture on Freedom Hill, which commemorates the soldiers and #veterans of the 4th Yugoslav Army, as well as the Partisan Overseas fighters. This #monument is located at a #spomenik complex in Ilirska Bistrica, #slovenia . The shape is meant to be symbolic of carstic caves (as are in the local region) and also bones (which are buried beneath the monument). . Created in 1965 by Janez Lenassi. . .—————————————- . . #design #moderndesign #yugoslavia #balkans #slovenija #ifeelslovenia #history #arthistory #architecture #architecturephotography #concrete #roadtrip #minimalism #brutalism #modernart #abstractart #easterneurope #explore #travelphotography #traveltheworld #minimalism #traveler @feelslovenia

  1. …Odlican i kratak tekst. Svidja mi se ideja da pises o ovim stvarima u vrlo zanimljivoj i nadasve poucnoj kategoriji Pokretaci. Volim kreativne i inovativne ljude koji razmisljaju izvan okvira mainstreama, ili pogrdnije receno mediokriteta.
