Abstract

The article addresses the transformations of urban public space in contemporary Croatia. It tackles the issue of responsibility related to city-making processes. It raises the question of what and who makes a public space public. The analysis is based on ethnographic case studies conducted in the European Square in Zagreb and Sea Organs in Zadar. Despite their previous marginality, both places function as places of gathering but also as spaces whose publicness i renegotiated between diverse agents.
