Kurzbeschreibung: 

Spomeniks literally meaning Monuments in Serbo-Croatian, look like spaceships conspicuously parked up in the middle of nowhere, alien to their surroundings, their bizarre beauty deriving from both their abstract location and imaginative symbolism. Follow in the footsteps of French photographer Jonathan Jonk Jimenez as he tries to track down these super-sized public structures. Once numbering in their thousands and attracting millions of visitors every year, they were revered by young pioneers as part of their patriotic education. Pushing architecture to its limits, Spomeniks are what happens when brutalism, symbolism, space age aesthetics and abstraction meet.
