Sydney based artist Julia Bavyka is bringing her ongoing project Mladen Stilinović Study Centre to the Croatian audience. Working collaboratively with Australian-Croatian curator and writer Ira Ferris, Bavyka presents the 4th iteration of the project under the theme 'Lost Rest'.

The project employs some of Stilinović’s key ideas and methodologies - such as language and ideology, labour and laziness, artist’s role in the community, etc. - while also acting as an ‘alternative archive’ (a community - rather than institutional - revisiting of the late artist’s work). The project was presented in June 2019 at Galerija VN, and involve a series of Active Afternoons with Croatian and international thinkers, artists, scholars, and local community.
