A monograph of the artist’s work, entitled Before and After Retrospective, is presented on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at the Centre. It is edited by the artist himself and Tevz Logar in collaboration with the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève; Gregor Podnar Gallery, Berlin; Snaporazverein, Zurich and Erste Foundation, Vienna. This book addresses the important topics and issues of Trbuljak’s complex artistic practice over the past 45 years. Several theoretical essays (by Ivana Bago, Andrea Bellini, Jerko Denegri, Christian Rattemeyer), an interview (by Vit Havranek) and the richness of the illustrations will allow us to understand the multiple elements at stake in Truljak’s practice and its evolution.
