Synopsis

How do post-communist museums and cinema contribute to shaping the image of a communist past in contemporary Central and Eastern Europe? This is the first systematic analysis of the use of visual techniques in grasping what the previous regime means. After the past was lost in 1989 in the former communist world, museums and memorials started mushrooming all over East and Central Europe. While reflecting on possible, actual meanings of the lost history the aim of shaping public opinion and discourse of the recent communist past also became apparent. Most of these undertakings - movies included - tried hard to make political use of recollections of the earlier world, and employed select tools from contemporary museological, memorializing and new-media practice to make their politicized intent historically credible. Thirteen essays from scholars in the region deal with the use of new media in shaping and fashioning popular perception of the previous era, and provide a fresh approach to the subject.

Peter Apor is research fellow at Pasts Inc., Center for Historical Studies at the Central European University. Oksana Sarkisova is research archivist at OSA Archivum and program director of the International Documentary Film Festival Verzio in Budapest.
