Curatorial notes accompanying the exhibition Desktop Cinema, held at MMC Luka, Pula, Croatia, July 2017, as part of Cinemaniac: Think Film 2017.
The project was conceived and designed as 'digital media focus' complementing the broader exhibition Video Television Anticipation/New Collection/Desktop Cinema, co-curated by Aleksandra Sekulić, Branka Benčić, HRT and myself.

In continuation with the temporal motif featuring the other sections of the initiative alluding to 'anticipation' and 'newness', in this short text I relate desktop cinema to the concept of post-media as posited by Félix Guattari, and I propose a critical reflection on its 'power of premonition'. To do so, I refer to the body of artworks selected for the exhibition, which include videos by John Smith, Kevin B. Lee and Susanna Flock.

The project also informed a curated film programme entitled Desktop Cinema presented on October 17th 2016 at the Zagreb Museum of Contemporary Art and therefore is meant be considered as part of a portfolio.
