March 17, 11.oo a.m.

The collection of articles is a product of collaboration of City-making project and CreArt project. The collaboration aimed at researching the role of art in city-making processes. How do artistic interventions function within the complex web of city policies and practices? In what manner are the stimuli from urban space incorporated in works of art? Do the artworks change the way people experience, imagine and practice the city?

The book consists of articles dealing with cultural-anthropological view on performances and city-making (Škrbić Alempijević), on urban transformation of Croatian cities – Sisak (Potkonjak) and Osijek (Mirčev), on public space and theater (Vnuk) and performances (Marjanić), on innovation and reinventing by artistic practice (Hjemdahl). Part of the book is devoted to particular artistic interventions which happened in Zagreb during 2016 under the auspices of CreArt and City-making projects (Ćurković, Augustinčić, Grabar, Tončić, Crnčević).
