How are we to understand the monuments of the socialist era today; what can we do with them; and why do we love to hate them? Heroes We Love project has brought together museums, research institutes; NGOs, and a dance company from Central and Southeast Europe in a joint transnational project on the (still) controversial issue of monumental heritage of the socialist past, in a dedicated search for possible answers. They've worked for three years, focusing on socialist monuments and their relevance for art, culture, and identity today.
