the exhibition will remain open until 11 August 2019

The old paths, trails and roads of Vinodol are the theme of the exhibition “In the Web of Paths,” which deals with the dense network of thoroughfares that intersect the littoral landscape. The exhibitions attempts to answer these questions: who built these routes and when, who used them, and where to they go? The exhibition’s creators examined the old paths and roads that appeared in the period from the beginning of the 18th to the mid-19th century in the area from Drivenik to Bribir, with the adjacent coastal belt and hinterland.
The main thoroughfares that functioned as the arteries of economic and social life during that period are highlighted in the exhibition. The exhibition takes a historical/ethnographic approach to the topic, as just one of the possible ways of understanding historical road construction in Vinodol. Numerous maps, photographs and video materials are used to present this intriguing and oft-neglected civil engineering heritage.

EXHIBITION
ON THE TRAIL OF THE REVOLUTION
exhibition on memorial tourism in Yugoslavia
conceived by: Lana Lovrenčić and Milan Rakita
the exhibition will remain open until 30 August 2019

To observe International Museum Day 2019 on the theme of “Museums as Cultural Hubs: The Future of Tradition,” the Lipa Remembers Memorial Centre will host the exhibition “On the Trail of the Revolution: Memorial Tourism in Yugoslavia.”
The exhibition examines the status and function of memorials to the People’s Liberation Struggle (best known under the acronym NOB) in the tourism segment of the commercial and socio-economic system of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY). NOB memorial sites became places of pilgrimage and commemoration for many Yugoslav citizens, so that by the mid-1970s approximately 2.5 million citizens were participating in the Partisan marches, excursions and outings under the name ‘On the Trail of the Revolution’. By the end of that decade, this number had climbed to approximately 4 million visitors annually, and NOB memorial sites became a part of Yugoslavia’s tourism product.
Using the examples of memorial sites from the territory of the entire former state, the exhibition “On the Trail of the Revolution” critically examines the incorporation of NOB monuments into the tourism product and how it was articulated from the mid-1970s until Yugoslavia’s collapse. Also considered is how the notion of NOB memorial markers as a tourist product influences the mechanisms for their instalment and management and whether these sites are even today a component of tourism.

The exhibition emerged in 2015 as a part of the international platform called Inappropriate Monuments, and thus far it has been staged in Zagreb, Sarajevo, Kraljevo, Niš, Šabac, Ljubljana, Belgrade and Čakovec.
The members of the Inappropriate Monuments platform are SF:ius/Social Fringe: Interesting Untold Stories (Zagreb), The Group of Architects (Belgrade), Moderna galerija (Ljubljana), Historical Museum of Bosnia-Herzegovina (Sarajevo), KUD Anarhiv (Ljubljana), and the Solidarity Leftist Movement (Skopje).

The guest appearance of the exhibition in the Lipa Remembers Memorial Centre has been financed by the Matulji Municipality and Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.
