Arkzin – The Context

Guest lecturer: Dejan Kršić

Dejan Kršić, a graphic designer, writer and translator based in Zagreb, will talk about a recent action undertaken by Arkzin: “The Nineties Are Back!” , about the remediation of Arkzin in the contemporary context and how the experience of this magazine which created public in 1990s can be understood today and transferred into the new production of public.


The situation is quite different from that of the nineties. The problem is that we cannot clearly say what is different today. Unfortunately we do not have a clear picture of what was the nineties, in particular it is impossible to establish a consensus in the wider society. I think we’re still missing some new media that help us explain what is happening to us, what is the conservative counter-revolution.
