Inauguration of the Bruce Lee Monument
In 2004, the Sarajevo Center for Contemporary Art launched the project "De/Construction of Monument". The NGO Urban Movement, Mostar, is one of the partners within this two-years-long project. The Bruce Lee-monument initiative represents an attempt for the public spaces to regain their meaning, and at the same time to question the significance of monuments and symbols, the old and the new ones as well.
The value of Bruce Lee"s figure lays in its universal character and in its concreteness, capable of provoking concrete emotions, first of all a sense of necessity to fight for justice. Therefore, in Mostar it is not the actor or the character played by him that the monument is being built to, but it is the very idea of justice, represented in a plastic way.
