During the residency, many unrealized projects from the 1950s to the present day were discovered in the archives and artists’ studios. Thanks to the interactivity of the physical and digital exhibitions, it will be possible to discover works like Total Portrait of the City of Zagreb (1979) by Tomislav Gotovac (Sombor 1937 - Zagreb 2010), a draft of a documentary screenplay about the city of Zagreb, The lost pavillion, an unbuilt pavillion by David Maljković (Rijeka, 1973) for the city of Lyon, and a proposal by Petar Dabac (Zagreb, 1942) for an unbuilt museum in Zagreb dedicated to photography (Muzej za fotografiju - Museum of Photography 1986). There will also be several conceptual projects by Vlado Martek (Zagreb, 1951) which stand halfway between linguistic and visual research, such as Ambivalentna tautologija (2013-2014) and Ništa (2015), two unrealized videos - The Moons (2011), in which the artist intended to document the existence of a second moon, and The Room (2009), a stop-motion video on a spritualist séance by Marko Tadić (Sisak, 1979) and Lithopuncture (2004), a project for a series of urban sculptures by Marko Pogačnik. The last was part of "Urban Intervention", a project organised by the Sirius Centre and promoted by the MSU, partially conserved in Lake Jarun Park in Zagreb, while some elements in the city centre were removed or relocated several years later.
