No Remembrance, No Comradeship (video)

About Remembrance
During the Second World War, Ljubljana was enclosed with by a barbwire fence for 1171 days. The fence was meant to separate the town from the hinterland. In its place, there is now a 35 km long public walkway called the Trail of Remembrance and Comradeship. Although it is a monument, since 1991 the Trail of Remembrance and Comradeship has been increasingly referred to, even in official maps, as the Trail or the Green Ring.

About Comradeship
In the summer of 2005 we invited a number of friends to join us, each first Sunday in the month, on a bicycle trip along the Trail of Remembrance and Comradeship. Most of them reacted to our invitation, morally supporting the project, but for a variety of reasons no one ever joined us.

"Although the participation in the work failed in this case, the work nonetheless achieved its goal; the quality of this type of works is not measured by the actual success or failure of participatory involvement."
