If the term Post-Modernism had not been used up by the European and American university chairs, it would be much easier for us to define stylistic characteristics of the museum theatralizations realized since the middle eighties in Croatia by the architect Željko Kovačić. At the beginning those installations intrigued round tables, provoked angry reactions of the allegedly neglected curators. To-day they are approved by experts whereas such a museological approach never had any problems with the public.
