 Historic theatre in Subotica demolished 

posted by istanbul 16 years ago

As previously reported on this weblog, a group of architects from Subotica (Vojvodina/Serbia) had protested the demolition of a mid-19th century theatre building - listed as a historic monument - by the town authorities. Although a compromise seemed to have been reached with the mayor about the preservation of the structure’s oldest part, the battle has now been lost. Please find below a statement in reaction to these developments sent to me by Viktorija Aladzic.

Stephen Lewis' weblog merits a visit with a new posting on wooden mosques in the Eastern Balkans. See also some related photo blogs (is that the proper term?) on painted decoration in late Ottoman mosques and stone-carving. Strangely, his other weblog at ("Infrastructure, Identity, Communication, and Change") has apparently been shut down by the Turkish government. From my Turkish computer it reads: Access to this site has been suspended in accordance with decision no: 2007/195 of T.C. Fatih 2.Civil Court of First Instance. More on this DEFINITELY later... (update: answer found here)

On the topic of "chinatowns" in Balkan cities like Prishtina and Sarajevo (and Belgrade, by the way; scroll down a bit on this site), Julia Nietsch from my neighbour blog SEE-EU has posted a brief comment in the context of an upcoming conference on "new" migrant communities in the Balkans.
