September 16 and 17, 2021
Trg republike 3, Ljubljana

How do images, sounds, and memories (re)invent traditions, histories, and spaces of political intervention? What are the cultural dynamics and the affective charges of the post-Yugoslav condition? How do they travel across various media and across the borders of various post-transitional peripheries?               

Organized by the Center for Cultural and Religious Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana (CPKR, FDV (UL)), and the MGLC – International Centre of Graphic Arts, this symposium complements the 34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts: ISKRA DELTA. Inspired by the Biennale’s ambition to re-think the actual and virtual contours of the “post-“ condition, Loud Memories, Turbo Folks brings together researchers in the domains of cultural, popular-music, and memory studies in the post-Yugoslav space (and beyond).

The two-day event at the crossroads of ongoing local and international collaborative initiatives is designed as a knowledge exchange and discussion platform. It aims to foreground ongoing and highlight some of the most resonant recent studies on popular music, visual culture, and cultural memory in the post-Yugoslav region, complementing the academic program with a film night organized in collaboration with the Ljubljana Short Film Festival – FeKK, a graffiti tour, a concert, and a special guided tour of the Biennale.

With contributions by Jernej Amon Prodnik, Robert Bobnič, Marija Dumnić Vilotijević, Nina Dragičević, Ana Hofman, Mateo Hočuršćak, Jernej Kaluža, Slobodan Karamanić, Mojca Kovačič, Maja Lazarova, Natalija Majsova, Rajko Muršič, Jessica Ortner, Vjeran Pavlaković, Aljoša Pužar, Svanibor Pettan, Boris Ružić, Maria Sokolova, Peter Stanković, Muanis Sinanović, Tea Sindbæk Andersen, Boris Stepanov, Ksenija Šabec, Jasmina Šepetavc, Anamarija Šiša, Eric Ušić, Mitja Velikonja, Fedja Wierød Borčak.
