The city of Velika Gorica underwent early election in which the governing parties were substituted by a new coalition, which until recently constituted the city government. These events are interesting for us since the new city government determined that there is a deficit in the city treasury and decided to save money wherever possible.

Since the program of the Galženica Gallery is almost entirely financed from the city budget, the restrictions also affected us. In order to cover the deficit from the treasury, we received 30.000 kuna less and for that we had to cancel Robert Šimrak’s exhibition and significantly reduce fundings for the international exhibition Device Art. True, there is the possibility that part of that money can be recovered in the autumn amending of the budget, but that is still questionable.

Despite everything – see you!
