Filmmaker and media artist Igor Grubić recently made a name for himself with his presentation in the Croatian pavilion at the Venice Biennale. His work Traces of Disappearing in Three Acts (2006-19) has been in the making for thirteen years. It consists of three interrelated photo essays and an animation film, in a specially designed mise-en-scène. The project began in 2006 when the artist began documenting Croatia's post-war transition, with a particular focus on the shift from socialism to capitalism, from a central, stated-planned system to a free market economy. Grubić examines the impact this has had on changes in architecture, the urban fabric, the public space and the social relationships that go with it.
