Galerija suvremene umjetnosti (Gallery of Contemporary Art), Zagreb, 1976.
Published on the occasion of the one-woman show of S. Ivekovic in the Gallery of Contemporary Art, Zagreb, December 1976, in 500 copies. The reprinted photos od Marilyn Monroe in this publication were selected in from a special number of the magazine "Duga" printed in November 1975, under the title "Tagedy of a Venus".
MoMA: "In Tragedy of Venus, Ivekovic reconstructs Marilyn Monroe's life using images and text from a tabloid story. On the opposite pages are scenes from the artist's life. The images share the text description from the tabloid article. By inserting herself alongside this Hollywood composite of fame, beauty, and tragic circumstances, Ivekovic simultaneously impersonates the Monroe story, distances herself from it, and plays with this ambiguity".
