Founder: Lauba - House for People and Art
Lauba is the House for People and Art which produces contemporary and urban cultural programmes. Lauba is the first protected cultural monument in the city of Zagreb to have been successfully transformed into a contemporary exhibition space in this millennium. Lauba was built as a horse-riding center of the Austro-Hungarian army in 1910, and on its 100th birthday it has finaly begun the renovation. The numerous awards and the prestigious annual award of the Croatian Society of Architects, Bernardo Bernardi, indicate that this is an exceptional architectural intervention. With the opening of Lauba in 2011 Zagreb got a brand new space dedicated to the visual art and culture, a space that possesses potential of creating a dialog in society – in the neighborhood, local and world community.
Lauba is a laboratory for experiments in the field of contemporary culture. Lauba is a platform for representation of Croatian cultural production and a medium in disseminating information about innovative programmes - international as much as Croatian. When talking about Lauba, we are not only talking about presenting and promoting contemporary visual Croatian art, but also about culture in general.
