Mladen Stilinović (Belgrade, 1947– Pula, 2016) was renowned in the Croatian conceptual movement "New Art Practice" for his work that often leveled social and artistic critiques through ironic and creative gestures in various media, including photography, film, and performance. He was one of the founding members of the informal, neo-avantgarde “Group of Six Artists” (1975-79) and co-founded the Podroom Gallery (1978–1980). His work has been exhibited throughout the international art world for decades, most recently in institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb (2011), and Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven, 2008). His works have been collected by renowned museums including the Museum of Modern Art and Centre Georges Pompidou.
