Art at a Cultural Crossroads. Art historical outline of the Nova Gorica Municipality

Edited by: Helena Seražin
Year: 2020

The richly illustrated outline of art in the Goriška region from the Middle Ages to the present day contains the latest knowledge about the most beautiful and most important artistic monuments in the area of the Municipality of Nova Gorica (MONG). Due to the extensive index of names and places at the end of the book and the schematic map of MONG on the tab, readers can also use it as an art guide. A large part of the book is dedicated to architecture and art after the Second World War in the completely newly built border city of Nova Gorica, which in 2018 celebrated its seventieth anniversary. A longer introductory text on the history of Goriška and the formation of Nova Gorica was written by a long-term collaborator of the Nova Gorica Research Station ZRC SAZU dr. Branko Marušič, while an introductory text on art in the Goriška region was written by dr. Helena Seražin, who also edited this publication. Other texts for the book were contributed by almost all collaborators of the France Stele Institute of Art History ZRC SAZU in cooperation with the curators of the Goriška Museum Kromberk - Nova Gorica and a collaborator from the Department of Art History of the Faculty of Arts, University of Maribor.
