The archive of the Photo Service of the President of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia contains nearly 300,000 photographs documenting Josip Broz Tito’s public and private activities from 1948 until his death in 1980. It is housed today in the Museum of Yugoslav History (MYH) in Belgrade. In 2012, the MYH curatorial staff initiated Travelling Communiqué, a title taken from the first conference of the Non-Aligned Movement in Belgrade in September 1961. It represents an ongoing collective project that opened this summer to the public with an exhibition, a summer school, and a film programme. The working journal is dedicated to the pioneering spirit of the Non-Aligned Movement and to Tito’s photo archive.
