EXHIBIT: "The High Stakes of Macedonia's 'Colorful Revolution'"
Several years ago the government of the Republic of Macedonia embarked on an "urban renewal" of the capital city, Skopje. The initiative was seen by many as a highly divisive nationalist project. In 2016, these monuments and buildings came under attack by various groups of citizens. Using paint as ammunition, they defaced the edifices in an expression of revolt against the buildings and the perceived government corruption and disregard for the rule of law. This exhibit brings together the visual testimonies of three photographers: Robert Atanasovski, Vanco Dzambaski, and Kire Galevski. The exhibit is sponsored by IU's Russian and East European Institute; School of Global and International Studies; and the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures, and it will close 12/17/2017.
