Liberal democracy of the western type had just defeated the Axis, and it was expanding towards the East and South East, in the former middle-European empires, starting to slowly fortify in countries that appeared on the ruins of the Habsburg Empire and in Russia. To the modern observer, time immediately after 1918 may look like modern day, mainly because this age started on the ruins of another war, and a wall. Reactions to the end of World War I were evident not only in life, but in literature, in its discourse, which started to turn decisively towards capitalism, and move away from the antiquated sources of power. Rapid urbanization, technological advancement and industrial development all paved the way towards new forms of literary expression, and, in later years the appearance of globalization.
This paper will argue that the preoccupation with culture, utopia and changes in the perception of reality are the main determinants of modern literature, social sciences and can be traced in several diverse fields. By redesigning the categories of space, movement and giving them different perspectives, one gains insight into the phenomenon of spatiality, but within the confines of cultural construction of space. Looking at the work „Landscapes of war“, by Juan Goytisolo and a variety of other sources, this paper will try to demonstrate how preoccupation with space leads towards cultural differences – when conducted by people from different cultural upbringing – and is a good tool for observing changes in literary expression. Additionally, the paper will discuss the idea of utopia as applied in the former republic of Yugoslavia, and try to critically discuss those elements of utopian ideal that led to the events described in „Landscapes of war“. Although utopia exists on several plains – as science, literature, idea, this paper will focus on two aspects – reality and literary examination of utopian dreams.
The appearance of space in humanistic sciences, and science about culture came after a period in which the main preoccupation was time, or better said historicism. The change was brought about with the appearance of globalization, post-modern capitalism and the internet as well as the new, post-colonial insight into the difference of cultures through time (Bachmann 4), allowing space to be examined as an analytical category, principle of social relationships .
Beginning of examination of space can be traced to the 1980's, coming from the work of theoreticians such as David Harvey, Edward Soja, Derek Gregory, Steve Pile, Doreen Massey and others....
