[ From the Media ]

In Mostar's Veliki Park a monument to Bruce Lee was erected in November 2005. In a divided Mostar, for the initiators this action "represents an attempt for the public spaces to regain their meaning, at the same time questioning the significance of monuments and symbols, both old and new. While politics and ideology have occupied and poisoned all segments of everyday life, in Mostar and in the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina, we would like to remind ourselves by building up the monument that a significant part of our lives, memories of our childhood and the first real values of life have nothing to do with politics or the great narrations". More on this remarkable project can be found on the Policies for Culture website.
