Literary festival KROKODIL 2011
16-18 June 2011
Museum of Yugoslav History, Belgrade
Opening: 16 June, 8 pm
KROKODIL is a three-day regional literary festival with panel discussions, in which around 15 relevant authors from ex-Yugoslav countries take part.
The main topic of the discussions this year is “Wars and Transition 20 Years on”, as 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of the beginning of the wars that disintegrated former Yugoslavia. The reasons for the breakout of the wars and the following disintegration of the previously multiethnic, multinational and multireligious state of Yugoslavia are complex and have their roots in ethnic hatred, mistrust and xenophobia. KROKODIL openly tackles all these subjects and is dedicated to discussing them.
Many prominent authors such as Svetislav Basara (Serbia), Faruk Sehic (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Ivana Sajko (Croatia), Ivan Colovic (Serbia) and many others will take part in the festival. An important part of the festival will also be round table discussions in Belgrade secondary schools with the active participation of students.
