PUBLIC MONUMENTS IN CHANGING SOCIETIES
Languages of publication
The paper attempts to describe a complicated history of the public monuments erected in Eastern Europe in the course of modern history - from Lenin's favourite pet-project, the Plan for Monumental Propaganda from 1918, making use of public monuments for propagation of Communism, through the wave of demolitions of a series of bronze or marble statues of pro-soviet politicians in its satellite states from the late 1980s onwards, and finally to their recent replacements by monuments representing nationalistic ideologies.
