Ohoho! Festival

The Ohoho! Festival organ­ised in Zagreb for under­ground DIY comics and street art func­tions above all as a plat­form for not yet recog­nised artists. This is due to the fact that the num­ber of free artists in need of oppor­tu­ni­ties for exhi­bi­tions and infor­ma­tion exchange has increased in recent years. The fes­ti­val focuses pre­dom­i­nantly on street art and inde­pen­dent comics. Ohoho! is ded­i­cated to edu­cat­ing young peo­ple, bring­ing them closer to an aes­thet­ics of the street and medi­at­ing ways of legally pre­sent­ing their art. In 2013, the sec­ond year of its exis­tence, Ohoho! show­cased mul­ti­ple authors and col­lec­tives from Croatia and the local region. Participants included Kosmoplovci, Turbo comix, Vinko Barić and Bučni stripovi (Loud Comics) from Split. Ohoho! is an ini­tia­tive of the Autonomni kul­turni cen­tar Attack! (Autonomic Cultural Centre Attack!) in Zagreb.
