This exhibition provides the first comprehensive overview of Božidar Jakac's photography ever. Renowned as a printmaker, the artist sought creative outlets in new media even as a student. Giving prominence to the newly discovered photographs of his from before World War II, the exhibition follows the chronology of the photographs the artist took at significant stages in his life: in Prague (1922-23), Novo mesto (around 1923), Paris (1925), Tunisia (1925), America (1929-1931), and while with the partisan forces (1943-1945).
Guided tours in English: Wednesdays 23 and 30 July at 7.30; admission free!
The 20th Century / Continuities and Ruptures exhibition breaks with traditional linearity by introducing the topics of the 20th century avant-gardes and of the art of the Partisan resistance, bringing them into the national history of art on an equal footing with more familiar trends and, as a consequence, casting new light on the latter.
