The Anatomy of the Grotesque in (post-)Yugoslav Cinema
The cross-disciplinary project ‘The Anatomy of the Grotesque in (post-)Yugoslav Cinema’ aims to identify the ways in which the cinemas of post-Yugoslav sphere challenge and debunk the discourses of post-Yugoslav nation states. The project specifically focuses on the manifestations of cinematic grotesque in post-Yugoslav cinemas and seeks to interpret this phenomenon as a particular strategy by which the filmmakers attempt to break from official cultural discourses of post-Yugoslav nation states.
