Curator gives a tour of the exhibition »Challenge of Modernity«
with Alexander Klee
Around 1900, art in Central Europe thrived in a lively exchange between Vienna and the capital cities of the crown lands, Zagreb included. The new trends arriving in Zagreb through artists trained in Vienna profoundly affected cultural life in what is now Croatia. The exhibition shows key works by Austrian and Croatian artists of the fin de siècle including Gustav Klimt and Koloman Moser, Vlaho Bukovac and Ivan Meštrović, as well as other protagonists of Viennese and Zagreb modernity.
