The Serbian uprising in ‘96/’97 was an attempt to overthrow dictatorship of president Milosevic after he annulled elections because of the victory of the opposition party. Ashamed by the unsuccessful outcome of their protest, the people of the capital Belgrade, where protesters reached 200,000 daily, have never produced an archive of photos, banners and graffiti, which emerged during these demonstrations. Scarce information on the Internet and inability of the media to reveal the data gathered during the protest has left the public without full account of the uprising. My project is that archive - a website of images, leaflets, badges, flags, vouchers, cartoons, crochets, poems etc, an online record of elucidated protest available to participants, scholars and the public. It is a pedagogical tool and a scene from which to interrogate archival discipline and question the success of any storage as a platform to capture the past.
