Dancing on Graves

This whole affair of Beyonce Knowles dancing on President Grant’s tomb reminds me of the stunt pulled by Stephen Lupino, Croatian fashion photographer who became some sort of former Yugoslav celebrity by taking shots of country’s top models without clothes and on public places. One of such sessions was held in Belgrade, on the Monument of Gratitude To France, built after WW1. Interestingly enough, Lupino didn’t have any problems with police, but soon afterwards his stunt was savagely attacked by Belgrade press, at the time in increasing stages of chauvinist euphoria and very sensitive to anything that could be insulting to the sacrifices of Serbian soldiers in WW1.
