The core questions that are being introduced in the volume The Place of Performance and City-making aim at juxtaposing performance, public space and city-making. Moreover, these topics are set out transdisciplinary, in order to examine the potential of intertwining academic research and artistic worlds. The specific approach to art-making in public spaces is established through the synergy of ethnology/cultural anthropology and visual arts, i.e., through the permeation of their various views on cultural and social phenomena. The combining of artistic and research activities has been implemented by two interconnected projects. The first is Creart project of the Croatian Association of Fine Artists (Hrvatsko društvo likovnih umjetnika, hereinafter HDLU), funded by the European Union. It is a part of Connecting Cities network which pursues artistic creativity and urban culture in European cities of medium size. The second project is “City-making: Space, Culture and Identity”, funded by the Croatian Science Foundation and implemented at the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research (project leader: Jasna Čapo Žmegač). This scientific project explores the city of Zagreb as a complex urbanscape that develops at the intersection of global, transnational, national and local (f)actors and processes.
