|Gemini by birth, journalist by default, Bojan Mušćet has a wide range of interests. He is the editor-in-chief of the T-HT Group’s magazine halo!, and more often than not writes techy articles for Jutarnji list, Men’s Health and web portal T-Portal, as well as music-related articles for Glorija, Plan B and Cantus.|
There is nothing in the media that he isn’t familiar with; for the fourth year in a row Mušćet has been writing a column for the T-Portal, titled Technotainment. He has also cooperated with various radio stations (Radio Rijeka, Obiteljski radio), and for over a decade he has been developing shows, writing scripts and working as a journalist at the Croatian Television (HTV); Sedma noć, Zlatni gong and Cro pop rock are just some of the shows he has worked on. Still, his favorite discipline is putting things in black and white; he has tried his hand at various journalistic roles, from a director (PC Chip) and editor-in-chief (Val, Slobodni tjednik, Moj Zagreb, Muška revija, Moj Moby) to editor (Svijet, Vjesnik, OK!, Foto, Dnevnik) and journalist at dozens of domestic and foreign publications.
For Mušćet papers document the spirit of time; he has thus participated in launching at least a dozen of papers and it is no wonder that he has decided to satisfy his collector’s desire by collecting different print media.
Thus came to life a collection of the first and special editions of different print media that has for the past quarter of a century grown slowly but steadfastly. This exhibition features a selection from that collection, first editions only, published mostly over the past 20 years. Most of the featured papers are no longer published, and those that we can still find in the market have transformed significantly since their first edition.
Nonetheless, these first editions represent the extra vergine efforts of all the journalists hoping that their projects would take root and survive in the market. During those times when first editions are prepared, everybody breathes as one, everybody shows enthusiasm and is infatuated with the media newborn. Exactly 101 product of such an enthusiasm can be seen at this exhibition which for the first time ever showcases a portion of Bojan Mušćet’s private collection.

|Weekend Kulušić Reunion|
SATURDAY, 20.09. 2008. u 22h - Garden
|On Saturday, September 20, at the Weekend Media Festival a huge party will take place, honoring the most famous club in the country, the legendary Kulušić. It was Tomo Ricov who had come up with the idea of making Kulušić the theme of the festival's closing party after realizing that all the DJs from the club's golden days would already be at the festival. Former DJs are now among the top players in the region's media and communication business. Thus, Neven Dubravčić, former DJ on legendary Lovesexy Wednesdays, is the founder and director of the agency Nukleus; Ozren Kanceljak, who used to DJ on the rock nights Sound of Music, which had filled Kulušić for years on Thursdays, is how taking the daily Večernji list into the digital era; Zoran Pezo, who had started the nostalgic Blue Moon Fridays, heads the production company Plavi Film; Tomo In Der Muhlen, who used to DJ together with Tomo Ricov on the super popular Tom Tom Club nights, is the leading copyrights dealer in the country. |
As Kulušić is also synonymous of the never forgotten new wave, there will be an all-star band at the party, headed by Dallas Records' director Danko Stefanović, who will (together with the Croatian Television's Krešimir Mišak on bass guitar) accompany the new wave icons Maks Jurčić, Davorin Bogović and Vlada Divljan.
