Dragan Klaic


Sarajevo 1950 - Amsterdam 2011. He last edited his personal site a couple of months before he went to hospital.

The Budapest Observatory published Festivals in Focus two and a half years after its author, our good friend and patron passed away.


We also had the privilege earlier to act as a broker in the process of publishing The Mobility of Imagination. The English original was followed by a Latvian edition by Culturelab, and Dragan's book is available also in Polish: read the English translation of Krzysztof Czyżewski's foreword



Resetting the Stage by Dragan was released by Intellect, a British publisher in 2012. The book discusses the position and mission of public theatre in today's world.


To watch: Dragan moderates a seminar on a video taken in December 2010 for the European Culture Congress, held in Wroclaw, in September 2011. (The word in the middle of the opening picture reads at first sight as smrt, a sinister signal in Dragan's mother tongue.)

To read: Excerpts on intercultural issues and on cultural policies in east and central Europe, as well as a short note by Dragan written on the eve of the year of intercultural dialogue.
