#likerWORLD #Zagreb Autonomous cultural center “Medika” was established in 2008, after several years of entrenched struggle against city bureaucracy, and with the cooperation of non-governmental organization “Autonomous cultural centre – Attack!” and pioneers of the Zagreb squatting scene.

Before “Medika”, their modus operandi was to temporarily open autonomous zones, occupy abandoned spaces (factories, warehouses, yards) for one night of audio-visual art events. They started with “Attack on Lap” in October 2007, where they busted in to “Lapidarij”– a once popular, but now decrepit and long abandoned Zagreb nightclub – to organize a party and a gathering with the hope of making public the major problem of independent cultural and civil scene – lack of  space for nonprofits, and independent cultural and youth programs.
