The article deals with artistic projects and interventions in industrial cultural heritage in certain cities in the Republic of Croatia (in other words – due to the long-term situation – our dark community), which endeavour correctively to prompt the powers-that-be to consider the theoretical and practical evaluation of the diverse aspects of protection and/or conversion to other uses of individual industrial heritage structures. The following artistic projects are in focus: Tanja Dabo’s Urbana intervencija [Urban Intervention] (1999), which this artist carried out on doors without handles on a wall covered in barbed wire on the former Rikard Benčić Factory in Rijeka, as the future location of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art ; Kristina Leko’s exhibition Rudarske uspomene [Mining Memories] (2008) ; the multimedia group Labin Art Express’s project Podzemni grad XXI. [Underground City XXI] ; Marijan Crtalić’s project Nevidljivi Sisak: fenomen Željezara [Invisible Sisak: the Steel Mill Phenomenon] (2009) ; Sanja Iveković's intervention SOS Nada Dimić (2000), and, Zlatko Kopljar’s K 13 project (2010) that was inspired by the TEŽ Electric Light Factory building in Zagreb. The article also refers to the Reka – Zagreb: dvije ulice, dva mjesta, dvije sudbine [Reka – Zagreb: two streets, two places, two destinies] (2002) in which Marijan Molnar examined the links between Prvomajska Street in Reka outside of Koprivnica (the artist’s birthplace) and Medvedgradska Street in Zagreb. Namely, the newly-opened farm for raising chickens in Prvomajska Street evoked recall of the fact that the premises of today’s Croatian Academy Sculpture Museum (the Glyptotheque) were once a leather processing factory. The article also singles out the exhibition of student work on the theme of the content-related and functional conversion of paleo-industrial complexes in Zagreb (curator: Iva Prosoli), which emerged within the framework of the Zagrebačka industrijska baština: povijest, stanje, perspektive [Zagreb Industrial Heritage: History, State of Affairs, Perspectives] project (project leader: Goran Arčabić). Further, we also give a brief survey of the Nevidljivi Zagreb: vodič za skvotere [Invisible Zagreb: a squatter’s guide] drive (2003) conducted by the Platforma 9.81 collective for architecture and media, whose aim was to revitalise Zagreb’s industrial, urban heritage. In conclusion, the question in the title – How does socially useful art come about? – has been adopted from the creative thinking objectives of the multimedia artist, Kristina Leko, who has become prominent in the our (dark) community with her socially aware community art projects.
