The Group of Six Authors one of the significant phenomena of conceptual art in the 1970s in the former Yugoslavia (Mladen Stilinović, Sven Stilinović, Vlado Martek, Željko Jerman, Boris Demur, Fedor Vučemilović). The members of the group expressed their various conceptual practices through "Exhibitions-actions". These are the installation of artworks, actions and performances in public spaces - squares, streets, public bathing places. Another form of joint work of the group was the "Maj 75" magazine (1978-1981).

Work of Boris Demur (Zagreb, 1951 - 2014) shows discipline and rational decision-making about painting procedures and execution. Numerous notes and entire notebooks record his complete focus on the process. In his primary paintings, he examined the very nature of painting. Demur's sculpture follows his painting - it carries equal primacy, processuality, analyticity. Photography becomes sculpture, with the same physical, material, processual features – sculpture in the medium of photography.
