David Maljković

The work of David Maljković (born 1973 in Rijeka, Croatia, lives and works in Zagreb and Berlin), which includes films, sculpture, collage, and installations, develops a critical enquiry into the legacies of modernism, in particular through the architectural symbols and sculptural forms of former socialist Yugoslavia and Eastern Europe. He investigates these remnants from the past in relation to the present, but also in terms of their potential—real or fictional—in an imminent or distant future, at the crossroads between science fiction and documentary film. He is also particularly interested in exhibition strategies and the semiotics of display.

(last copies available!)
Following the experimental format of the Maljković's eponymous exhibition, A Retrospective by Appointment deconstructs the traditional format of a retrospective catalogue. Adopting a nonhierarchical presentation, the publication introduces the artist's key concerns, methods, and works, and proves to be a relevant critic of Zagreb's institutional landscape.
