Allow us to flip again in anger! – 2024-05-21 18:39:50

/ world at this time information/ The euphoria over the number of Plovdiv because the European Capital of Tradition in 2019 has lengthy since subsided. We began to sober up, and the modifications are so dynamic that you simply by no means know that after three years the brand new barbarians is not going to occupy the attractive metropolis. And to proceed the good work of the previous barbarians!

I consider the cultural devastation wrought on this previous quarter century, and my pleasure of alternative goes to the flicks. What sort of European capital will we be, if we evenly shut down e book publishing with over 100 years of historical past within the first years of the Transition? “Hr. G. Danov” was the award-winning model of books with excessive creative deserves. Why ought to it have been struck out as an alternative of remaining a pacesetter in e book printing to at the present time?

Hand in hand with him went into oblivion an authoritative journal for literature and artwork – “Thrace”. And it was deleted, most probably, as a result of it additionally appeared throughout socialism. A strong argument certainly. And this journal was learn and wanted not solely in southern Bulgaria, but additionally all through the nation. It was an honor for any poet, novelist or literary critic to see his identify on its cowl.

You’d need to be an unenlightened barbarian to order the destruction of the tv middle archive. And that is what a brief consultant of the SDS did to convey order to the media. It isn’t about political occasions, BKP conferences and Todor Zhivkov’s visits to Plovdiv. Though they need to even be preserved as a result of they’re a part of town’s historical past – even when some individuals do not prefer it. Full recordings of distinctive theatrical productions since 1970, native and nationwide artwork exhibitions, the development of Outdated Plovdiv, cultural occasions of unimaginable significance have been destroyed. They’re gone, they went to maintain the e book publishing firm and the journal firm.

There may be additionally one thing else that makes us blush as we soar for pleasure that we would be the European Capital of Tradition. For 4 years, public power went to waste to combat for the “Alyosha” monument. Does anybody keep in mind with what ardour the monument was denied / the previous mayor of the long run cultural capital, Spas Gurnevski, was probably the most livid!/, what loopy concepts swirled not solely within the heads of their authors, but additionally within the media! From the mad urge to explode and go away no stone unturned, to the folly of carving Alyosha till he seems like Levski, or chugging an enormous bottle of Coca-Cola. How comparable wouldn’t it be to us as a European capital of tradition, eh?

Inform me, give an instance – during which European metropolis, even whether it is two or three thousand years previous, and never eight, they put a statue of a madman in probably the most distinguished place? What European cultural dimensions can we declare after we cross by the meek half-idiot Milieu? As a substitute of him being a titan of the spirit, a creator with indeniable qualities and achievements, as Plovdiv has, we’re waving our legs alongside Primary Avenue close to a mentally unwell man, who is just remembered with a condescending smile by some Plovdiv residents of honorable age. What to elucidate to a visitor of town? That we’re loopy and he’s the conventional one? But when we’re a neighborhood individuals, we should always tie former mayor Ivan Chomakov there, and he ought to inform the glazed-over vacationers concerning the “achievements” of Miliovi.

And the place are the brand new performances, the sensible concert events at dwelling and overseas of the as soon as golden ensemble “Thrakia”? Since in 1999 it handed to the municipal meals courtroom, the highly effective inventive formation doesn’t burn, however mush. How will we preserve cultural monuments? Go to Outdated Plovdiv – a minimum of ten homes gape gutted, as in the event that they have been occupied by Al-Qaeda operatives. The record shouldn’t be full.

There aren’t a couple of barbaric marks on the power of the long run European capital of tradition. The euphoria of alternative shouldn’t make us short-sighted and shove them within the closet of Oblivion.
