The Culture of Smoking: From Taboo to Taboo

Back Download

This exhibition in the Glyptotheque at the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Zagreb, Croatia follows a subtle approach to exploring the link between smoking, art and the related concept of taboo. The exhibition focuses on the role that smoking has played in Croatian artistic and popular culture over the last 150 years. Playing with the idea of taboo, the display hides the exhibits even from the museum itself: by concealing all of the existing elements of the gallery, the conventional exhibition space has disappeared.
