NEW ART FOR NEW SOCIETY: your presence is requested
– publication and exhibition graphics
(September 2015)

The presentation shows pieces from the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, documentary and archive materials from the collection of the MSU’s Library and Documentation Department, which revolved around two important publishing initiatives of the museum – the magazines BIT International and SPOT (photography magazine). Both magazines were created by the MSU curators with significant contribution of notable artists and theoreticians, and thus can be perceived as a testimony to the intellectual life of Zagreb in the 1960s and 1970s. The artistic pages and essays included in these magazines present the context of the museum’s avant-garde exhibition programme. The artists featured in this exhibition directly participated in the formation of the Croatian art scene and methodology of that period.
