(p.123) 7 Vibrant Commonalities and the Yugoslav Legacy
After Yugoslavia

Gordana P. Crnković

Stanford University Press

While political elites and new governments continue to assert the distinctiveness of the Yugoslav successor states and the nonconnection with a shared Yugoslav past, the art created in the region in the last two decades seems to frequently make, assume, and even emphasize these connections. This chapter offers a brief sample catalog of such works and the ways in which they enact the above connections, including references to Yugoslav-era works (of the other independent states) in post-Yugoslav literary and cinematic production, and the common interstate connections in post-Yugoslav cinema production. The chapter also points to one feature discernible in select contemporary literature and cinema that could be identified as an aspect rooted in the region’s connection with its Yugoslav past. Finally, the author mentions some of the most literal instances of bringing back, retrieving, and reactivating the Yugoslav intellectual and artistic past into the present.

Keywords:   shared Yugoslav past, distinctivness of successor states, post-Yugoslav literary and cinematic production, artistic past into the present
