Our Great Past Needs A Great Present

We should observe the best cultural, economic and other experiences from all angles and try to apply them, for us to form them – to a certain extent – into a common set of virtues, and to preserve, refine and proudly present that which is only ours.

Our country has always been in a vivid windstorm between East and West, but also between North and South, which is rarely noticed and mentioned. I think that this challenging position, which has often meant trouble, is something that we could prudently turn into an advantage – for us to be a little mystical, colourful, an inspiring East to the countries of the West and a modern, bright and open West to the countries of the East; a warm, hospitable and cheerful South to those from the North and a green, advanced and developed North to lands of the South.

We should perhaps observe the best cultural, economic and other experiences from all angles and try to apply them, for us to form them – to a certain extent – into a common set of virtues, and to preserve, refine and proudly present that which is only ours. Countries from different parts of the world would thus look upon us as something recognisable and close, yet completely different and inspiring. Serbia should continue to strive for the position of one of the centres, because everything revolves around the centres. The centres are the liveliest and are, naturally, at the centre of events. The centres have gravity and attract everything around them, including attention. The centres are the richest. The centres are the most beautiful. The centres are the most important.

I would like Serbia to become a country of balance, because equilibrium is the most recognisable script of both beauty and wisdom

There are two strong forces acting at the centres. Thus, we should seek a balance between two principles – openly turning towards others and openly turning towards ourselves. If it is balance that holds the cosmos together, how important and precious is balance for one country? I would like Serbia to become a country of balance, because equilibrium is the most recognisable script of both beauty and wisdom.

There exist times in which a multitude of great, significant things emerge for the place where they’re created. There also exist times in which works simply don’t originate, or at least don’t survive. A lot of that has happened in these areas during certain periods. We now need good times again, and we should realise them thoughtfully. I think that balance between the past and the present is also important for Serbia. Our country is located on the territory where Lepenski vir, Vinča and countless other discovered and undiscovered cradles of culture exist. So, we have a past that’s important and great, of global proportions. And it’s because of this that we need an equally significant present. That means a lot of work for creators. Many great people have thought that creativity is the only meaningful thing to share. And perhaps it is, but within a broader concept – one needs to create an environment for creativity. Finally, how much have creatives managed to change our concept of Serbia, and how much has Serbia given them? Enough! Although there should never be enough of that/
