    Born in Croatia in 1973, Maljkovic has attracted attention over the past couple of years for a series of solo shows and for his presence at a number of important group exhibitions in venues such as KW in Berlin, Artists Space in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. While the main medium in Maljkovic's practice is video, he occasionally uses photography, collage and drawing. His works constitute a cultural and historical exploration of the events of Croatia's recent past, through confrontations between the country's current younger generation and its historical monuments, and also present his interpretation of the future for former Soviet bloc societies. His work is represented in the collections of the Centro de Arte Dos De Mayo (Madrid), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Fonds municipal d'art contemporain, Ville de Paris, MOMA (New York), Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Rijeka), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) and Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven). Group shows in 2008 included When Things Cast No Shadow, 5th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art, and Eyes Wide Open, acquisitions, Stedelijk Museum CS (Amsterdam). David Maljkovic has been honored with the 2009 ARCO Prize for Young Artists.
