Summary/Abstract: The article discusses postmemory landscapes, understood both as a spatial disposition of Eastern and Central Europe, and their cultural – especially photographic, filmic, and literary – representations. The author shows that those landscapes allow to reconsider two crucial problems in the light of memory and trauma studies: i.e. spatial dimension of remembering and the meaning of site/landscape for the experience of postmemory, as well as the reinterpretation of the archive of visual clichés related to the representation of space, which is marked by historical trauma.
