Serbia: Writers and Politics

Richard Byrne of Balkans via Bohemia pays tribute to Serbian writer Mihajlo Mijhajlov, “a prominent former dissident to both Titoism and nationalism,” who died recently at the age of 76. Sladjana Lazic of A Slice Of Serbian Politics muses on whether “the political engagement of artists can degrade their work,” in a post prompted by the recent death of Momčilo Momo Kapor, a Serbian writer, painter and journalist, as well as “a member of the Committee for Protection of Radovan Karadžić” and an illustrator of one of Karadžić’s children’s books.
