The Sixties in Croatia – Myth and Reality

It is the central exhibition of the Museum of Arts and Crafts in 2018 offering an overview of one of the key periods of recent Croatian history from 1958 to 1971. Then a constituent republic of the communist‑ruled Yugoslav federation, Croatia enjoyed an unprecedented economic boom in the 1960s. People were wealthy enough to feed the kind of consumer industries that employed designers, marketing strategists, advertising executives and stylists. Cracks in communist discipline allowed for a bigger diversification of political views and a relaxed attitude to censorship, while relative cultural freedom allowed avant‑garde artists to explore any avenues they wanted.
