After the death of Tito, in 1980, the artist Goranka Matić walked the streets of Belgrade for several days and photographed shop windows displaying photo portraits of Tito decorated with a black ribbon as a sign of mourning. This ad-hoc collection at the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Belgrade presents the series of Goranka Matić's photographs resembling postcards and showing the shop displays of bakers, butchers, grocers, hat sellers, hairdressers and perfumeries, all arranged with one addition – the president’s photograph. The album’s title, ‘Days of Pain and Pride’, is ironic, referring to the press media at the time that relentlessly ran the story of the death and funeral of the SFRY’s lifelong president.
