The Wall Displays (WD) project began in 2006. as a direct communication channel of the long-term urban research project Re-collecting Cities / Re-collecting Time. Its focus is on juxtapositions of urban narratives in the XXth century, originally concentrated on Zagreb, but later encompassing other cities in the region and the EU.
The intention of the Re-collecting Cities / Re-collecting Time project was to re-think and preserve tangible and intangible urban heritage in the EU.
From 2010. on, Wall Displays have outgrown into a separate and complex project on urban hyper-textuality – Zagreb Parafernalie.
The Wall Displays editions are now exposed in eight wall displays of the ex-cinema venue of the Croatian Cinematheque located in downtown Zagreb.
Each year, the jury of experts selects up to five editions (eight content-wise; connected and designed art works for eight displays), created/ proposed by numerous authors and authors’ teams from all over the world.
Proposed/ selected projects/ editions can be both a research process or the result of an already finished research process or an elaborate art concept.
Wall Displays are a visible part of the Shadow Casters constant research and reflection on the city, public and private space, urbanity, co-existence and identity.
