Ann-Sofie Öman on Rare Parity by Tanya Mars

Very funny intelligent political satire on Kongresni trg (Paviljon) a Friday afternoon - and the Slovene media is not there!

Canadian Tanya Mars' live cartoon figure, washing bills from different countries dressed in a black woman costume and puffing on a thick and long and very potent cigar, got a very clever nick name by a middle aged Slovene man from the coast, who happened to be visiting Ljubjana and was one of the many people who were passing by and stopped and watched with a big smile: a bankster. Not a banker, and not a gangster, but a bankster. That is a person who's occupied with money laundry, or forging money, or changing the currency of a country, or changing the value of the currency of a country, in order to get more money out of the money you already have.

How could the Slovene media not be there?
