VELESAJAM KULTURE VISUAL IDENTITY + POSTERS + BOOKLET + WEB + VIDEO / client: Kultura Promjene (SC) / collaboration with Niko Mihaljević and Katarina Zlatec / 2011.
Velesajam Kulture/Culture Fair is a 4-day festival in Zagreb, open to interested participants within all cultural fields (music, theater productions, art, performances, film). Although the festival takes place in the Student Centre building, its participants are individuals that work independently of each other. Therefore, the concept was to create the identity that is both individual and mutual: every event of the festival had its own poster, which was part of the bigger picture – the festival itself. The individual poster in A4 size was the base of the identity – each poster can work on its own, but by arranging them in groups, a programme is formed. Categories were colour-coded so that the observer can easily find things of his/her interest. The billboard was made out of hand pasted A4 sheets, and the leftovers (pieces of billboard) were stamped and used as teasers all over the city. Each color codes one activity (music, performance, visual arts...). The covers for the booklets were also made out of A4 pieces of billboard (bend to A6) and stamped. Each of them was unique.
ZAGREB, JAVNI PROSTOR BOOK DESIGN / client: Porfirogenet / in collaboration with Niko Mihaljević / 2011.
"Zagreb, public space" (Saša Šimpraga, Zagreb, javni prostor, Porfirogenet, Zagreb, 2011) is a series of urbanological studies of parts of Zagreb which are common to all citizens, such as squares, streets, parks, cultural and other institutions. The book also discusses various urban elements such as urban sculpture, the problem of light in public space, street names, etc. It is a book of highly engaged atmosphere, which derives from the author's activism. Besides the historical overview, and current analysis of perticular public space or problem connected to it, the book offers proposals on how to improve the city.
AN ANTHEM TO OPEN BORDERS
CONCEPT AND PERFORMANCE Petra Milički / SOUND DESIGN André Castro / CAMERA AND EDITING Astrid van Niemwegen & Daan Bunnik / TEXT EXCERPTS Aleksandra Domanović (Turbo Sculpture, 2011) / IMAGE EXCERPTS Jan Kampernaes (Spomenik, 2010)
AN ANTHEM TO OPEN BORDERS is a lecture performance based on the specific context of the former Yugoslavia, and the phenomenon of social behavior on YouTube, which has developed to the point where pop music videos serve as monuments, triggering emotional reactions that span from nostalgia to fierce political divisions. The topic considers the more general theme of memory politics in the post-broadcast age.
During the exhibition the lecture performance took the form of an installation.

PARALLEL EXHIBITION EXHIBITION CONCEPT / WORM Rotterdam / 2012.
During the time of the final graduation show of the Piet Zwart Institute (July 2012) I set up a small parallel exhibition in a venue located across the street from where the official exhibition took place (Witte de With, Rotterdam, NL). In 'Parallel Exhibition' I displayed photocopies of papers tossed (by the students and staff of PZI) in the recycling bin, that I had been collecting since March 2012 (the period of final show preparations). The exhibition included several setup changes and on-the-spot production of exhibition catalogs.
COLLABORATIVE SETUP EXHIBITION CONCEPT / D DAY, Zagreb / 2012
'Collaborative Setup' is an exhibition that explores the notions of online identity performances while producing them at the same time. It is a system of the remote exhibition setup produced through collaboration between the visitors (organizers, volunteers and other participants of the exhibition/event in question) and me, the author from a remote place - wherever I might be at that point. The communication takes place through the chat program (especially programmed for this occasion) where the setup and location of each exhibit are being discussed. While the exhibit itself is actually the content of each chat discussion (i.e. its printout), the entire space of the festival becomes potential exhibition space. After the completion of each chat, the content is being printed out and displayed on the agreed spot, after which the collaborator takes a picture for the requirements of the exhibition catalog. Collaborative Setup was realized during 'D Day', a 3 day-long festival of design, which took place in an abandoned factory space in Zagreb, HR, while I was in Rotterdam, NL.
IDEAL CITY ARTIST BOOK / Werkplaats Typografie + ISIA Summer School / 2010.
The workshop assignment was to produce a work that refers to the ‘Ideal City’ - a painting by Piero della Francesca or Lucijan Vranjanin (the author is not certain). The painting shows the ideal city of the time (15th century). The project was inspired by the initial Google search results for the word ‘ideal’. Most of the results (web pages, images, texts...) were related to products, services and accompanying ads. I saw it as a great example of Herbert Marcuse’s theory set in his book ‘One - Dimensional Man’. Following Marcuse’s theory I started to wonder what could be an ideal city of today. It had to be the one which has the most ideal things to offer or sell. My new database became the Yellow Pages, which helped me find the ideal city by searching firms and companies which call themselves or their products ‘ideal’. In New York City there were over 300 firms and companies with the ‘ideal’ in their names. They cover all the needs and activities in ones life, from food to religion.
