Plastic Tito……….. a partizan interview on Skopje 2014

On the night of the 29th of November 2013 a polyester monument of the former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito was illegally erected in front of „Josip Broz Tito Gymnasium“ in the centre of Skopje. We believe that the illegal status of this sculptor offers a unique possibility for artistic interventions in order to discuss the cultural wave of monuments, also known as „disneyfication“ of the Macedonian capital. Using its non-legal status and the historical connotations, the creative transformation of the statue of Tito could allow him to reappear as a living partisan symbol.
