"Forget all the leant babble on photographic means, methods and rules on photographs we had talked about. Think of them as messages, not media. Forget the medium."

The Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, in collaboration with the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection is opening an exhibition of Rudolf Sikora (Žilina, 1946) and Július Koller (Piestany, 1939 — Bratislava, 2007), notable protagonists of the Eastern-European Neo-Avant-Garde scene.
