Stories for 68

STORIES FOR 68 – A project by Raycho Stanev, Diana Ivanova and the former solider of the Bulgarian occupation troops of 1968, Radoslav Stanev. What does it mean to return forty years later to the place where, as a solider of the Bulgarian occupation troops, one was supposed to abort the “Prague Spring”? What are one’s feelings and memories on the way into the past and in encounters with people in Banska Bystrica, Bratislava und Prague? The goal of this journey is less the reconstruction of events as to ascertain whether a dialogue about one’s own past is possible between generations and with people in contemporary Europe, and to see what effect this journey has on the dialogue, whether it changes something.
The project combines recounted history with multi-media documentation.
