The trainees had a private visit to two photographers’ archives managed by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb: the Tošo Dabac Archive and the Vjenceslav Richter and Nada Kareš Richter Archive.

The Tošo Dabac Archive

This archive was inscribed in 2002 in the Register of Croatian Cultural Monuments. The archival material has an exceptional documentary significance and comprises almost 200 thousand negatives, around 2000 artistic enlargements, valuable photography equipment, Dabac’s library, and a collection of newspaper clippings of the legendary Zagreb photographer. 

The Vjenceslav Richter and Nada Kareš Richter Archive

This archive documents the oeuvre of one of the most prominent Croatian artists from the 1950s and 1960s. Vjenceslav Richter and his wife, Nada Kareš Richter, donated their artworks and their family house to the city of Zagreb in 1980, with the intention of promoting research on Constructivist art and providing a place for young artists to meet, but also to improve cultural affairs outside the centre of Zagreb.
