This blog is created for everybody who has a kind of ‚totalitarian experience’. Well, exactly, that is the question – what does it mean?

This question and others (see the totalitarian survey) appeared during a meeting ‘Strategies for dealing with the totalitarian past – the artist’s view’, organized by the New Culture Foundation and Goethe Institute in Gorna Bela Rechka, Bulgaria, 10-14 October 2007.

People from Germany, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Turkey and Bulgaria attended (with one American volunteer who came from Florence as an observer).

Working language was English so most of the materials posted here will be in English.

Here you can find some of the presented topics and discussions, observations and write your own comments, suggestions etc.
