Accumulated Traumas

quotesY “…the phenomenon of accumulated traumas, as a more appropriate term to define the post-socialist condition, that is, a kind of turbulence of unassimilated, unmourned earlier traumas of the Socialist past, buried under new traumas of changes, originating in the odd, hybrid transition of the region.”

-Edit András, “An Agent That Is Still At Work: The Trauma of Collective Memory of the Socialist Past,” Writing Central European Art History
