Pseudoistorija/ Pseudo-history

Ovako je izgledalo prvo zvanično predstavljanje Ustanove kulture “Parobrod” u sklopu proslave verskog praznika “Cveti” i manifestacije “Jevremova- ulica susreta”, mart 2010. U svojoj osnovi nova institucija kulture opštine Stari Grad predstavlja pokušaj stvaranja pseudoistorije tj. lažne istorije radi legitimisanja ciljeva preotimanja kulturno simboličke vrednosti i fizičkog prostora Centra za kulturu “Stari grad” i programa Kontekst galerije koji su se tu nalazili pre formiranja “nove” ustanove.

This is how  the first official presentation of the Cultural Institution “Parobrod” (Steamboat)  looked like. It was organized in the frame of celebration of the religious holiday “Palm Sunday” and event “Jevremova- street of encounters”, in March 2010. In its essence, the new cultural institution of the inner city’s municipality “Stari Grad” is an attempt to create a pseudo-history i.e. fake history in order to legitimize the goals of  appropriation of cultural symbolic value, and the physical space of the Cultural Center “Stari Grad” and the Kontekst gallery that were in the place of the “new” institution before it was founded.

 

Jedna od naših prvih reakcija na procese transformacije i gašenja Centra za kulturu “Stari Grad” se dešavala paralelno sa revizionističkim programom UK Parobrod povodom proslavljanja opštinske slave “Cveti”. Posetiocima manifestacije “Jevremova- ulica susreta” delili smo publikacije i kataloge Kontekst galerije i ukazivali na nužnost kritike ovakvih programa koji za cilj imaju stvaranje pseudoistorije prostora u kome smo radili od 2006. godine.

One of our first reactions to the processes of transformation and closure of the Culture Center “Stari Grad”  happened parallel with the revisionist program in the Cultural Institution “Parobrod” on the occasion of the celebration of the municipal feast “Palm Sunday”. We distributed publications and catalogs of Kontekst gallery to visitors of the the event “Jevremova-street of encounters” as well pointed out the necessity of critique of policies produced with the aim of creating  pseudo-history of the space in which we have worked since 2006.
