The central character of my art poetics is the character of the politician. He is the archetype of evil, the obese, blind, pale-skinned, bald and gluttonous individual in a black business suit, pure greed in human form. He is portrayed in practically all of my personal works.

The paper is supported by Chetna, an NGO that also provides education and training for the writers.

Fifty years ago, Skopje, the capital of Macedonia, was hit by a huge earthquake that flattened the city. Two years later, Japanese architect Kenzo Tange won a competition to design the new city center. And his influence on the city’s retrofuturistic look is still apparent decades later.http://io9.com/brutalist-buildings-that-should-be-dystopian-movie-se-802637713
