"The fourth publication in the Tendencija series is also the first one dedicated to a domestic art critic, one who has left his mark on the history of tendentious art. Reflecting the development of European modernism on the 'periphery of civilization, devoid of strong visual art traditions', as he described the position and conditions of Croatian interwar art, Đuro Tiljak interprets it from a historical-materialist perspective. (...) Reevaluating the canon of modern art, this Moscow and Paris pupil writes in the midst of the conflict on the literary left. Although he sided in the above-mentioned conflict with the proponents of social literature by advocating for the conclusions of the second conference of International Union of Revolutionary Writers, his position on the internationalization of Soviet visual art, especially his attitude towards socialist realism, was fluid and mutable rather than firm and dogmatic.
(...) In order to open space for the reevaluation of his critical work and to expand the historicization of his 'case', with this publication we essentially document the entirety of Tiljko's journalistic work. His critiques and studies, so far scattered across interwar literary and scientific-artistic journals, have been gathered in one publication for the first time, and some texts - transcripts of manuscripts and shorthand - have also been published for the first time."
