Yet another new monument in Serbia

posted by istanbul on 2008/08/28 13:24

Further developments in the "monuments movement" (see an older posting for background): this time it's Bob Marley, and the setting is the "Rock Village" Banatski Sokolac (where? - it's not in Bosnia, as one commentator from Belgrade believed, but in Vojvodina) on the border with Romania (map). Site of a recent rock festival, one of the conclusions voiced on the rock village's website: "the backyard of elementary school was too small for all the people who love rock music." The initiative for the Marley monument, on the other hand, even prompted a response by the "ministar of information, youth & culture" of Jamaica (read here). Pictures of the monument: here and there.

 Never mind, it's absolutely worth mentioning it two times and in two languages ;-)
