Temporary Border

Temporary Border. Life And Longing In Zone A (1945- 1947).

From 7 September 2017 until 28 February 2018

The exhibition marks the 70th anniversary of the creation of the western Slovenian border. It is devoted to an outline of existential relations in the area of the Julian March before 1947 and, through the memories of the inhabitants, reveals the complex relations in the region during the Allied Military Government (1945-1947). The period of the AMG meant for the inhabitants a transition from shortage to well-being, an exit from poverty, and the start of a new, post-war life. At the same time, the new temporary Allied authority brought new insecurity, national tensions and violence to the territory, which made it still possible to think that the end of the war had not brought final peace.
