Painter, writer and filmmaker Željko Kipke, undoubtedly one of Croatia’s most famous conceptual artists, revisits the location of six art galleries and venues where the history of contemporary art in Croatia was forged during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s which are slowly disappearing from the cultural map of Zagreb. Of the six art galleries and venues that shaped the contemporary arts scene in Croatia, only two are still in existence today: the Museum of Contemporary Art and Extended Media gallery.
