Tankarville : "Memorials" (The ghosts Of Communism)

This concept-album is a trip in ex-Yugoslavia's Spomeniks world, bizarre and retro-futuristic monuments of eastern bloc.

"...What’s most fascinating about the structures in Spomenik is that, up until the 1980s, they attracted millions of visitors, yet today they stand unknown by the younger generations and neglected by the older, their symbolism a fading flashbulb memory in the collective mind of their host cultures." Maria Popova.

Tankarville : "Memorials" (Les fantômes du communisme)

Cet album concept est un voyage dans le monde des Spomeniks de l'ex-Yougoslavie, ces monuments étranges et rétro-futuristes de l'ancien bloc de l'est.

"...Le plus fascinant dans ces Monuments commémoratifs est que, jusque dans les années 1980, ils ont attiré des millions de visiteurs alors qu'aujourd'hui, ils demeurent méconnus des jeunes générations et négligés par les anciens. Leur symbolisme est une réminiscence s'effaçant petit à petit de la mémoire collective des populations locales." Maria Popova
