These pictures show reconstruction of refugee's homes after civil war in Croatia in 1990s. "The Reconstruction" refers to material reconstruction of civil homes organized by the Croatian government. Also, it refers to efforts to bring the life back to the area where it has disappeared from. It represent the institutional effort to once again transform the society. After another devastation everything has to be build anew.

Cycles of destroying and rebuilding, devastation and reconstruction are repeating themself on this area for centuries. Someone is always taking sides, but at the end everyone comes out from the battle as a loser. As a final consequence, life is vanishing from this places. An area that represent historical European margin, is now even more marginalized.
