Tisak, Twenty-three Newsstands is a series of photographs taken between 2017 and 2020. Photographer Marko Ercegović, in collaboration with journalist Igor Lasić whose work has focused on following the privatization process in Croatia, started investigating company Tisak d.d. (j.s.c.). The company started under the state-owned enterprise Narodna štampa, which was founded in 1946, and within which a separate branch dedicated to distribution was established in the 1970s. After the privatization in the 1990s, Tisak was affiliated by the Agrokor concern, whose major business crisis has had an impact on the recent economic situation in Croatia and the region. Tisak’s popular red newsstands were turned into spots serving different purposes, thus becoming perhaps the most visible urban sign of the economic collapse that directly and indirectly affected numerous workers [...]

POLITICAL SCHOOL FOR ARTISTS AND ALL INTERESTED 2020 – CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Large_sova6_resized

 

Application deadline: 16 February 2020

Do you want to address social issues through art? Does experience tell you that the reach of that sort of engagement is futile? Are you an artist, but you’re forced to work outside the sphere of art in order to survive? Does capitalism have you working your fingers to the bone and you want to see whether there’s an alternative? Do you want to find out what the concept of class really means and why we need class theory in order to understand the society in which we live? Are you interested in the history of socialism as an ideology and the history of the labour movement as a political force? Do you believe that the emancipation of women is inseparable from theoretical and practical reflections on radical social and economic changes? Are you concerned about the workers’ struggle and the possibility of organizing in contemporary circumstances? Are you looking for ways to strengthen your argumentation for future discussions with right-wingers and proponents of capitalism?

Take part in the Political School for Artists and All Interested! [...]

PROMOTION OF THE 2019 POLITICAL SCHOOL FANZINE

Large_fanzin_feb_event_cover2

The fanzine created by this year’s class of the Political School came about through a desire for the group to continue its work together and articulate political attitudes and knowledge inspired by the School, both through text and illustration. It was conceived and produced by the participants in its entirety: from the production of texts, through editing and proofreading, to graphic design. In that sense, it is heterogeneous in terms of its content and form, and reflects the topics that the participants found particularly inspiring or provoking. These topics were largely those that pertain to feminist theory and practice, and the relationship between art and labour. [...]
