Through a reflection on the Partisan Memorial in Mostar by the visionary architect Bogdan Bogdanović, Hysteresis focuses of the gap between the attempt to build an ideal space of dialogue, remembrance, inclusion in Mostar and the real events occurring in that particular site since the sixties.

Hysteresis has been shown in the first institutional exhibition of the multidisciplinary research project MonuMed, curated by Alessandro Gallicchio and Pierre Sintès, which is dedicated to forms of monumentalization in the urban space of the Balkans and in the Mediterranean region.
