Spomenik Branku Pešiću radiće srpski vajar iz Los Anđelesa

Spomenik beogradskom gradonačelniku Branku Pešiću radiće srpski vajar Marko Kratohvil koji živi u Los Anđelesu, odlučeno je na sednici Odbora za podizanje spomenika kojim je predsedavao istoričar umetnosti Nikola Kusovac.

Spomenik gradonačelniku Beograda, koji je bio prvi čovek prestonice jednu deceniju, u periodu od 1964-1974. godine, tokom kojih su završeni most „Gazela“, petlja „Mostar“, Terazijski tunel, izgrađena Beograđanka, ali i gotovo stotinu hiljada stanova, biće postavljen na jesen.

Umetničko delo biće, kako je najavio zamenik gradonačelnika Beograda Goran Vesić, postavljeno tokom jeseni u pešačkoj zoni u starom gradskom jezgru Zemuna.

Umetnik Marko Kratohvil, koji je izabran da radi spomenik Branku Pešiću, rođen je u Beogradu, gde se i školovao. Ali, 1991. kako stoji u njegovoj biografiji, preselio se u London gde je živeo i stvarao skulpturu, crteže i bavio se arhitektonskim dizajnom 25 godina.

Od 2009. umetnik se nastanio u Los Anđelesu, a kako navodi u svojoj biografiji, izlagao je tokom karijere širom Evrope i Amerike, dok mu se radovi nalaze u privatnim i javnim kolekcijama.

Grad Beograd će finansirati, kako je Vesić napisao na svom Fejsbuk profilu, i dokumentarni film o Branku Pešiću, čiji su autori Duška Jovanić i Vuk Dapčević.

The Meaning of Reality

Essays on Existence and Communion, Eros and History

by Christos Yannaras

The collection of articles traces the thought of Christos Yanaras through his long journey in discovering the meaning of existence, communion, eros, and history. It is a cause of immense joy that no fewer than twenty articles of passionate significance and substance have at present been gathered together in this volume under the title The Meaning of Reality.

Yannaras is undoubtedly one of the most significant thinkers of our time. Kallistos Ware once described him as "the most creative and prophetic religious thinker at work in Greece today," while Rowan Williams characterizes him as "one of the most significant Christian philosophers in Europe." His very wide and no less deep education helps him to develop an inimitable blend of philosophy, theology, and social criticism, and to speak in an original way about the traditional and contemporary issues of human existence, as well as the latest challenges of modern empirical science and political engagement. A detailed knowledge of the writings of the Holy Fathers has always been his foundation amidst the labyrinth of modern thought - which is inimately bound up with psychoanalysis, environmental issues, human rights, postmodernism, and pluralism , to mention just a few. Insistence on the primacy, uniqueness, and eternal value of human personality prevails in almost all his works and inspires his own vigorous theological and ecumenical engagement, based on the Orthodox eucharistic and ascetic tradition.
