World Festival of Animated Film Animafest was founded in Zagreb fifty years ago and is one of the oldest festivals dedicated to animation. The exhibition Animafest Zagreb 1972 – 2022 summarises the Festival’s half-century history. Alongside the central exhibition on the Festival’s history, there are also four thematic exhibitions that are traditionally held as part of the Festival’s accompanying programme: Behind the Scenes and Nedeljko Dragić: The Line Tamer, the latter being this year’s laureate of the Animafest Lifetime Achievement Award, the exhibition of storyboards by the Dutch master of animation Paul Driessen, and the exhibition of photographs by the Finnish author Timo Viljakainen Behind the Eyes of the World, who has been portraying animators with closed eyes in different ambiences since 1990.

Tina Gverović and Siniša Ilić: Pressure Points

14.04.2022. - 02.07.2022. / Zbirka Richter


Opening: 14 April, 7 p.m.

For Tina Gverović and Siniša Ilić research for this exhibition began with the renowned Yugoslav Pavilion at the international exhibition EXPO 58 in Brussels in 1958 by the architect Vjenceslav Richter. The spatial organisation the Pavilion, which involved numerous collaborators, included the topics of state and social organisation, contemporary art, economy, and tourism. The artists are particularly interested in how Richter employed specific design strategies in order to represent societal structures of the time. The pavilion was broken into distinct but overlapping topics or areas, with key characteristics of the design being dedicated to transparency, cross-pollination, and trans-disciplinarity. With this in mind, Tina and Siniša began to think about how today’s society might be presented within a contemporary pavilion, and about the primary topics that should be addressed within such a pavilion.
