Zagreb before Zagreb – prior to 1094

Zagreb dok ga još ni bilo - prije 1094.

Zagreb before Zagreb – prior to 1094

During the 28 years of consistent work on the “Zagreb before Zagreb – prior to 1094” museum-educational action, twelve museum finds, i.e. their replicas, made their way from the stationary museum surroundings and entered the throng of the Zagreb city streets at the authentic locations of their discovery. Their mission is to raise awareness about the natural and cultural heritage of Zagreb, and to bring a breath of museality into the living tissue of the city.

The exhibition is a reversal! Seeing as the monuments cannot be removed from the streets and return to the museum, we are compelled to present the originals. The whale, the bearded man from Petrinjska street, the exceptionally good wife, the wooly mammoth and the rest of the company will try to bring a breath of urban life into the museum as this exhibition about Zagreb that had not even existed.

Participants: Pontius from Kerestinec, the mammoth from Frankopanska street, Egnatuleus Florentinus, Jupiter, the bearded man from Petrinjska street, the lamp from Mirogojska road, the emperor Diocletian, the exceptionally good wife, the Zagreb whale, and the others.
