This thesis deals with the cultural life in Zagreb from the beginning of King Alexander's dictatorship (6 January 1929) to the end of 1932. Using examples of party manifestos, informative daily press, literary magazines, theatre performances, film, public holidays and cultural events, the thesis demonstrates how certain aspects of Zagreb's cultural production served as opposition to the official cultural politics in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The cultural politics were defined by laws which legitimized dictatorship, as well as by the state's official ideology of integral Yugoslavism. Every activity that was not compatible with such politics was penalized by means of censorship or interdicts. This research focuses on such activities, which impacted directly on culture, propaganda and politics. The thesis is based on documents, reports, memorandums and correspondence from the Croatian State Archives (HDA) holdings and collections, as well as sources from the thematically related literaure.
