BLOK (founded in 2001) is a curatorial collective whose work focuses on the democratization of culture and art, as well as on the articulation of resistance to the processes of privatization of culture, which fundamentally reorganized the field after the restoration of capitalism. Their activities range from the production and research of socially engaged artistic practices, to publishing, to political and artistic education, to the organization of cultural workers who fight for better working conditions. Since 2016, they have been managing the BAZA art and activism space, located in Trešnjevka, the largest district of Zagreb. In 2018, they launched a long-term project called THE TREŠNJEVKA NEIGHBORHOOD MUSEUM, a way of working with the local community through the construction of a virtual collection, artistic productions and various socially engaged cultural and artistic programs. Collaborations with cultural and educational institutions, as well as with artistic and activist initiatives, locally and internationally, are an intrinsic part of their activities.
