We had more freedom then: Yugoslav artists on socialism

A fascinating post over at Propaganda called ‘We had more freedom then‘.

The following are interviews with two Yugoslav artists, Goroslav Keller and Bata Knežević, discussing what it was like to work as a graphic designer during socialism. The videos were part of the “Design for a New World” exhibition at the Museum of Yugoslav History in Belgrade, Serbia.

  1. I read so many stories where people in some former Communist countries lament the end of the system. As well as Yugoslavia, I have read many similar tales from East Germany, Hungary, Bulgaria, and others.
    Of course, they now have the ‘freedom’ to be poor, exploited by criminals, and to work for low wages in other countries. So much for progress.
    Best wishes, Pete.
