“Mm…I would like to have a statue of a McDonald's cheeseburger which would distribute free meals. That would look post-post-modern!”
Anna, Economist, 27

“Actually I like the statue of Ali and Nino designed by Tamar Kvesitadze in Batumi. I just wish there was a contemporary but stylish statue in Tbilisi like that one.”

”To tell the truth, I have not thought about monuments, our authoriries are constructing monuments so quickly that people do not even have time to think about the issue.”
Mano, Journalist, 27

“I would like to see singer Irakli Charkviani’s monument in Tbilisi , as he created an independent musical culture of 21st century Georgia. A monument to him would be timeless last in all epochs.”
Davit, Student, 19

“I would like to see Michael Jackson’s monument in Tbilisi, I love his music very much.”
Ani, Language Specialist, 22

“There are a lot of outstanding people in Georgia who are worth a monument in Tbilisi or some other leading towns - better than bikes, slippers or eggs. I am really surprised and irritated with some 'architectural innovations.' I would like to see former Georgian Patriarch Ambrosi Khelaia’s monument. As far as I know, such a monument does not exist in Tbilisi.”
