COEXISTENCE CAST IN BRONZE: MONUMENTS OF SIGNIFICANT PERSONS AS MEANS OF ORGANIZED DISTRIBUTION OF CLASSIFICATION SCHEMES (Spoluzitie zaliate v bronze: Pomniky vyznamnych osobnosti ako prostriedok organizovaneho sirenia klasifikacnych schem)
The study provides an account of institutional distribution of classification schemes. The authoress focuses on the role of the idea on history in the policy of the Municipal Government in the ethnically mixed town Nove Zamky in South-Western Slovakia. She analyses the case of revitalisation of Main Square, which represents the central public space. Revitalisation was made in 2005 and consisted in removals and installations of monuments. The authoress argues that the statues placed at Main Square have been used as instruments in order to support local patriotism as well as ethnic balance between the Slovak and Hungarian inhabitants of the town.
