A map and linked images of some amazing 60's abstract memorials "which followed the emancipation from the Soviet-Union and the development of Yugoslavia’s own road to socialism along the line of “self-management”.
From Form + Zweck which used to be the design magazine of the German Democratic Republic (GDR).
"As the GDR ceased to exist the magazine was continued with much enthusiasm and care by the former editors as an affectionate and enthusiast project, which is self-published up until today.
Form und Zweck means form and purpose, and expands the classical modernist credo of form and function. Initially the magazine took up the tradition of the Werkbund and the modern movements ideas of design and translated them into a real- socialist context."
