22.08.2023 - 24.08.2023 / centar Zagreba

In August, we are again holding the tour "Moving is a Must!" I.K. in the city center, in Croatian, and in English.

Ivan Kožarić (Petrinja, 1921 - Zagreb, 2020) succinctly expressed his attitude of constant readiness for movement with the exclamatory statement "Moving is a Must!" And with every tour, paying tribute to the great artist, we try to penetrate into the essence of vitality that he managed to incorporate into his works, each time in a different way, and even when it comes to the sphere of public plastic, where it is least expected. 

While walking through the center of Zagreb, we evoke the stormy history and context of the creation of sculptures beloved by the people of Zagreb: Grounded Sun (1971) and a dedication to the poet A. G. Matoš (1978) in Gornji grad. Puncturing Kožarić's Zagreb will include just a few of the numerous, never-realized urban interventions with which he boldly opposed the conventions of monumental sculpture, as well as the works of other artists that were created as a tribute to Ivan Kožarić.

The "Moving is a Must!" I.K. was designed by Radmila Iva Janković, senior curator and manager of Atelijera Kožarić (MSU), and Antun Maračić, Kožarić's longtime collaborator, artist, and curator. The tour will be led by art historian and heritage interpreter Ivana Meštrov. The tour was realized in cooperation with the Museum of Contemporary Art (as part of the European project Adrinetbook of the EU fund INTERREG Adrion) and the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb.
