Journal Život umjetnosti

Život umjetnosti is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published twice a year in a bilingual edition (Croatian and English). It conforms to the normative criteria for scholarly publications and nurtures the tradition of continuous publication since 1966. Dedicated to the fields of modern and contemporary art, urbanism, architecture and design, the journal covers a wide range of topics from addressing specific phenomena to deliberating on relevant issues at a theoretical level. The areas of Central and South East Europe are addressed with particular focus, as the contextual placement of Croatian art. The consideration for publishing is limited to original scholarly papers only. Besides scholarly texts, the editorial board holds the right to publish secondary content of expert nature: current events overviews, book reviews, interviews, translations of specialized literature into Croatian etc.
