Maybe it seems so from your perspective...
but before getting bitter about it
please consider also it might be that
this text is a fair attempt to map out
"New Media Art in Croatia"
focused on local activities tied to specific
local-political-cultural-economical context,
rather then wider field of
"New Media Art of Croatian citizens and diasporas"
which would be tied to genealogical
and civic/nationality administration.

Without implying that text is perfect or without problematic issues
or even that work of Zvonimir Bakotin and Maja Kuzmanovic
is less appreciated (they know I appreciate their work)…
I think that your conclusions are wrong.

However it would be very interesting
to be constructive and look into phenomena of  the
"Croatian New Media Diaspora"
and how does change of social
climate/available resources/networking support
influenced their work, aesthetics and topics
they focused on. Maybe you should give it a try?

This is a question other "exEasternEuropean ex-patriots"
should also be interested to discuss – no?
