On Tuesday, 16 May 2017 at 20:00h, the Multimedia Cultural Center (Youth Center) in Split will open the exhibition Counterfeits, Misinformation and Frozen Images – Design by Dalibor Martinis of the ’70s and ’80s.

These are mostly exhibition posters realized continuously since the early 70s to the late 80s for the Gallery of Modern Art (today’s MSU) in Zagreb, movie posters for authors like Rajko Grlic and Lordan Zafranović, but also reference art projects which are conceptually close to Martinis’ design production.
VINCENT BOLLORÉ MOVES TO CONSOLIDATE MEDIA EMPIRE
French tycoon Vincent Bollore took a first step last week in his attempt to merge media giant Vivendi and advertising company Havas, two groups he controls through his family-run conglomerate.
Vivendi said it was making an offer to buy Group Bollore’s 60 percent stake in advertising group Havas for 2.36 billion euro.
The combined entity would represent more than 13 billion euros in annual revenues and add a new business to the Vivendi group, which owns Universal Music Group (UMG), one of the top three world record labels, and France’s number one pay-TV Canal Plus.
The offer values Havas’s total equity at 3.9 billion euros.
Havas, led by Bollore’s son Yannick, was one of the two top targeted businesses in Vivendi’s next expansion phase, two sources close to the matter said last month.
