Competition for the arrangement of the concealed burial places of post-war victims Location; Slovenia Client; Republic of Slovenia Public anonymous competition; special jury award Project; 2003 Project team; Matej Kučina, Marko Studen (Scapelab), Boštjan Botas Kenda (Studio Botas) Collaborators; Jernej Černe, Domen Šega, Primož Fijavž The arrangement of the concealed burial places is in some way a political task, for it divided the Slovenes in two groups: those who agree with recognition of post-war crimes and those who don’t. This is why this public anonymous competition can be understood as a symbolic reconciliation in the spirit of civilised piety. The client’s wish was to design the concealed burial places, spread out practically all over Slovenia with a unified monument, orientation elements and integral image. In contrast to most of the contestants, who planed monuments as verticals, we decided on a horizontal round form, made of oxidised steel (korten) with engraved data. Such monuments can be used as a bench as well a place for placing candles and flowers. The project was, despite its undisputed quality, eliminated due to a mistake in the competition material.
