The exhibition Scenes from Zagreb – Artists’ Publications of the New Art Practice is also open at MoMA until 17 February. It displays magazines, photographs, fliers, notes, sketches and handwritings of artists who marked the sixties and seventies in Yugoslavia. Works by Goran Trbuljak, Ivan Picelj, Braco Dimitrijević, Sanja Iveković, Mladen Stilinović, Vlado Martek and other representatives of the movement illustrate the intense period marked, among other things, by the fact that artists left traditional studios and moved to urban spaces, as well as by the mutual activity and gathering of artists and critics around particular galleries, such as the Student Centre Gallery in Zagreb. More info on the exhibition is available here. Also, by mid-March, MoMA is hosting the exhibition of Sanja Iveković’s video works and installations – Sanja Iveković: Sweet Violence.
