On 22 February, the National and University Library in Zagreb marks the day of the publication of the first Croatian book as the National and University Library in Zagreb Day. Misal po zakonu rimskoga dvora, a missal printed in 1483 whose original copy is preserved as part of the Library’s Manuscripts and Old Books Collection, will be at the centre of the 2018 celebrations as well.

On 20 and 21 February 2018, the Library will traditionally organise its Doors Open Days and in this way again enable its users and the wider public to take guided tours of its collections and get better acquainted with the Library’s activities and its role in Croatia’s culture and science, especially when it comes to the preservation and making available of the priceless treasures that it holds.

As the largest and oldest library in Croatia with over 130 kilometres of shelves, almost 3,000,000 items and more than 46 digital collections, the National and University Library in Zagreb makes a vital part of Croatia’s social, economic, cultural and intellectual potential.

The Library’s Doors Open Days guided tours will be organised every two hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (at 10:00, 12:00, 14:00 and 16:00) and will include visits to the Library’s four special collections (Manuscripts and Old Books Collection, Music Collection, Print Collection and Map Collection), its open access collections, Periodicals Collection, Homeland War Book Collection, Foreign Croatica Collection, Official Publications Collection, as well as its Imaging and Digitisation Division and the closed stacks collection. All interested in visiting the Library as part of this special programme should register online.

The programme will additionally include the marking of the 2018 International Mother Language Day, as part of which on 21 February the Library will host a special concert organised in cooperation with the Institute of the Croatian Language and Linguistics which will feature performances in three Croatian dialects by notable Croatian musicians Lidija Bajuk, Dunja Knebl and Elis Lovrić.

Take this opportunity and learn more about Croatia’s valuable cultural heritage by joining us in the Library’s celebrations of 411 years of its existence!

According to the decision of the European Parliament adopted on 27 April 2017, the year 2018 has been declared the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

The purpose behind this annual programme is to increase the impact of cultural heritage on economy and social developments in general, as well as to strengthen the position of European culture in the international context. Furthermore, such an insistence on the recognition of the significance of culture at the same time represents a powerful statement against the current destruction of cultural heritage in the Middle East.

Since the essential prerequisite for the long-term preservation of cultural heritage is our active engagement with it, a wide array of events and activities that will be taking place throughout 2018 as part of this initiative will try to bring the wider public as close as possible to all kinds of cultural content, particularly targeting the younger population.

Open since 12 December 2017, the latest NSK exhibition, featuring a valuable selection of film posters preserved in the Library’s Print Collection (Filmski plakati iz Grafičke zbirke – izbor iz fonda), will remain on view until 29 December 2017.

The exhibition was presented by the Head of the NSK Print Collection Tamara Ilić Olujić and the exhibition’s author Charlotte Maria Frank, also one of the members of the Collection’s staff. Frank pointed out how posters had originally usually been the work of distinguished artists, until they gradually started to be produced almost exclusively by graphic designers. In its original form, a poster, an essentially urban phenomenon and artistic form displayed on various public surfaces characterising the urban environment, was intended for passers-by, to quickly be summed up in visual terms. Apart from its artistic quality, it has always also had a communication purpose – it is a public medium announcing events, advertising and promoting products, and, in the case of film posters, operates as an explicit suggestion on how to spend one’s leisure time.

Not put on with the intention to give a comprehensive overview of film posters preserved in the Collection, the exhibition features the selected posters in order to provide a brief outline of their various technical and stylistic aspects and present interesting examples of attractive visual and artistic solutions in this medium. Images and textual content whose primary purpose was to attract onlookers to movie theatres and get their interest in particular films, today stand as examples of appealing visual solutions and source of numerous information on the history of poster art and changes in visualisation in this context, as well as on significant details making up the rich history of Croatian cinematography and its related valuable heritage.

The oldest film poster displayed as part of the exhibition dates from 1919 and is the work of Otto Antonini, who made it for the film Brišem i sudim. Other posters include Olimp kino, a cinema poster for a film theatre in Zagreb opened in 1921; Bogata nevjesta, a poster by the notable Atelier Tri and author Vladimir Mirosavljević made for a homonymous 1937 Soviet musical; Lisinski, a poster made in 1944 for the first Croatian full-length sound feature film; Ivan Grozni, Malahov Kurgan and Koncert, posters by Zvonimir Faist; VI filmski festival u Puli, a poster featuring an inventive visual solution for the 1959 edition of the famous Pula Film Festival, the oldest national film festival in the world. Perhaps the highlight of the exhibition is a poster by Pablo Picasso, who painted it in 1969 for the international distribution of Bitka na Neretvi (Battle of Neretva), a film by internationally acclaimed Montenegro-born Croatian director Veljko Bulajić, and a poster by world-famous Mirko Ilić made in 1993 for the 50th Annual Golden Globe Awards. There are also two posters by Mihajlo Arsovski, a poster by notable Croatian artist Boris Bućan made in 1976 for film screenings at the Zagreb Student Centre, and Samo jednom se ljubi, a poster by Dalibor Martinis made for a homonymous, cult film, in 1981.
