New Collections is a project of the Third Programme of Croatian Radiotelevision (HRT - HTV 3). This is a specific project of Croatian Radiotelevision, aiming to support artists and artistic production in creating new audiovisual works. In a span of 5 weeks, viewers of Croatian Television (HRT - HTV) had the opportunity to see a series of newly-produced video works and installations by known Croatian artists, made within the framework of Croatian Radiotelevision, which challenge the boundaries of the media, television and reality. The artistic project New Collections is authored by Tomislav Pulić, while the team of curators and advisors is composed of art historian and curator Branka Benčić, and director and media artist Vladislav Knežević. Vlatka Kolarović is the editor and host of the show. In the ‘first season’, 5 video works have been realised, by the following artists: Lightune G. (Bojan Gagić and Miodrag Gladović), Dalibor Martinis, Tomislav Šoban, Kristijan Kožul/ Damir Žižić, and Ana Hušman, while episode 0 was dedicated to anthological works by artists from the 1970s and 1980s (Galeta, Trbuljak, Martinis, Iveković), bringing a historical context, and pointing to the continuity of the relationship between art and television.
The selection of New Collections is shown within Pula Film Festival side programme Cinemaniacs - Think Film, and the exhibition Video Television Anticipation at MMC Luka.
