Art Workshop Lazareti
History and museums
Art Workshop Lazareti (Croatian: Art radionica Lazareti ARL) in Dubrovnik, Croatia, is an independent cultural center, with an integrated club, for contemporary art that brings together artists, philosophers, writers and theoreticians and promotes an active and investigative approach to contemporary art and culture, society, politics and its inter-relations. The Art Workshop Lazareti was established in 1988 and it is located in the old Dubrovnik harbour quarantine called Lazareti, built in 1642, immediately overlooking the Dubrovnik city beach and old harbour. The workshop has revitalized the historic building, which in 2002 had been included in the 2002 World Monuments Watch by the World Monuments Fund, and was subsequently restored.
Art Workshop Lazareti is directed by Slaven Tolj.
