We are a non-profit NGO from Zagreb founded in 2002 under the name KONTEJNER | bureau of contemporary art praxis. We are engaged in curatorial work, organization of art festivals and other public events, and in education and social theory. Our main field of interest is progressive contemporary art which investigates the role and meaning of science, technology and the body in our society, focusing on the relevant and current phenomena, especially within provocative, fascinating and intriguing subjects and topics, as well as those perceived by the society as taboos. These include pleasure, time and energy, mental health, human and artificial intelligence manipulation and dark matter. We have curated and organized over 100 group and solo exhibitions, performances, lectures, workshops and presentations of international and Croatian artists, theoreticians, philosophers, scientists, hackers and innovators. Working specifically in the framework of cross-sectoral collaborations, we are connected with numerous institutions, organizations and individuals - from local hospitals and medical institutions, to the world's largest scientific laboratories. We have presented our projects in Europe, USA, Canada, Japan and China (Zagreb, London, San Francisco, Tokyo, Montreal, Skopje, Prague, Belgrade, Linz, Beijing, Rijeka, Dubrovnik, Ljubljana and many other cities).
