Europe after 1989: Ethnic Wars, Fascisation of Social Life and the Body Politics in Serbia
AbstractThe paper deals with the specific area of representational practices in which the media production/appropriation of reality in Serbia played the decisive part in the process of the fascisation of social life and every day practices in Serbia - before and during the wars in the Former Yugoslavia. It is concerned with showing how the chosen discourses of appropriation of social memory, collective trauma and the re-creation of the Enemy-Otherness in image and event can become an integral, “self-participatory” agent in the pro-Fascist construction of the social reality - through the very image/concept of the “reality” itself, which then becomes the lived experience of people exposed to the constant working of the image/concept.
