“...It contained seven objects. The slender fluted bone, surely formed for flight, surely from the wing of some large bird. Three archaic circuitboards, faced with mazes of gold. A smooth white sphere of baked clay. An age-blackened fragment of lace. A fingerlength segment of what she assumed was bone from a human wrist, grayish white, inset smoothly with the silicon shaft of a small instrument that must once have ridden flush with the surface of the skin - but the thing’s face was seared and blackened.”
William Gibson, “Count Zero”, 1986

Accompanying the first large-scale retrospective exhibition of the artist - who is also part of the Kontakt Art Collection - that took place in the Ludwig Museum–Museum of Contemporary Art in Budapest in 2011, this book features over 100 installations, environments, artist’ books, collages, slogans, photo works, and previously unpublished early videos and experimental films and includes essays by such distinguished scholars as Branka Stipančić, Ellen Blumenstein, Ana Javenski, Georg Schöllhammer, et. al. which examine the extensive and consistent oeuvre of Mladen Stilinović and his importance on the international art scene.
The catalogue SING!, edited by Branka Stipančić, gives a comprehensive overview of Mladen Stilinović’s œuvre. In the first part of the catalogue five Essays analyze the work of the artist from different perspectives. The essay Auction of Red – A Look at the 70s by Branka Stipančić presents the early work of the artist and the activities of the Group of Six Artists. Ana Janevski examines the early films of Stilinović, in the context of the flourishing experimental film-scene of the former Yugoslavia. Igor Zabel’s text was originally published in the catalogue: Artist at Work 1973–1983, published by the Galerija ŠKUC, Ljubljana in 2005. By republishing this essay, the editor and the publisher wished to pay homage to the memory of Igor Zabel. Ellen Blumenstein refers to one of the most known pieces of Stilinović, Artist at Work (1978) when analyzing the famous manifesto of the artist, Praise of Laziness. The role of the work in the artist’s world as well as in the society gives the framework of her thought-awakening essay. Katalin Székely’s essay gives an overview of parallel phenomena in the former Yugoslavian and Hungarian neo-avant-garde art, through the work Taken out from the Crowd (1976).
Texts by and interview with the artist (by Darko Šimičić) are inserted into the second part of the publication, the part where most of the Works of Stilinović are reproduced. The third part of the catalogue, Documentation, edited by Branka Stipančić, consists of the List of the works exhibited in the Ludwig Museum, the list of the artist’s books, the lists of the actions and interventions as well as of the films of the artist. The group and solo exhibitions as well as a selected bibliography and a list of the works in collections are also included.
Mladen Stilinović (April 10, 1947 - July 18, 2016) was one of the leading figures of the so-called "New Art Practice" in Croatia and a founding member of the informal neo-avantgarde, Group of Six Artists (1975-1979), together with Vladimir Martek, Boris Demur, Željko Jerman, Sven Stilinović and Fedomir Vučemilović. He lived and worked in Zagreb, Croatia.
