ATLAS OF COMMUNISM
collective memories from suceava
This project is a collaboration between me and the citizens of Suceava, who shared their knowledge of history and architecture, personal experience, memories and stories.
The main purpose of this atlas is to raise new questions, not to recreate history, and to start unexpected conversations between the generations that lived during communism and the ones that never experienced it.
However, in order to bring to the surface complex stories about Suceava, my home town, I chose to represent its weaved layers, by creating three different visual ways of looking to the city, through maps, illustration, and photography to create a reflective atlas, based on narration and personal stories.
