Abstract from the publisher's webpage for this article:

Post–2000, the space of what was formerly socialist Yugoslavia saw the rise of politicized performance practices that interrogate the nation and national identity. The performance works of Grupa Spomenik (The Monument Group), Slaven Tolj, and the three artists who changed their names to Janez Janša all ask what it means to be a citizen, specifically by engaging with commemoration as a paradigmatic act of citizenship.
