MORE on Darko Fritz:

Notions of the Program in the Art of the 1960s
– Concrete, Computer-generated and Conceptual Art
case study: [New] Tendencies

The presentation will examine several exhibitions, artists practices and related theories on the notion of the program in art. Several tendencies of art of 1960s that are at the first sight completely different and excluding each other can be viewed throughout the notions of the program. The first discourse toward the notion of the program in art we can find in Concrete / Neo-constructivist / Luminokinetic art and alike, second discourse in Computer-generated art and third in Conceptual art. Umberto Eco writes a text on “Arte Programmata” for the catalogue of an exhibition with the same title in Milan in 1962. At the New tendencies movement and network (1961 – 1973) organizers set computer generated works in relation to Constructive and Kinetic Art (1968/69) and to Conceptual Art (1973). At the time being in 1960s almost no communication was established between mentioned three ways of artistic practices and related theories. Very few exhibitions were presented those kinds of works together back in the time of its production. Tendencies 5 exhibition in Zagreb in 1973 is the a rare example in art history that connected and presented those three frames of art under the same roof – being those of Concrete, Computer and Conceptual art. New tendencies tried to merge these three artistic practices through the notion of the program and by the works not being executed by the artist himself/herself.

The presentation will be accompanied with audio-visual documentation from the 1960s and newly recorded ones, especially from the exhibition bit international. [New] Tendencies Computers and Visual Research, Zagreb 1961 – 1973, Neue Galerie, Graz, 2007 and ZKM (Zentrum fur Kunst und Medientechnologie), Karlsruhe, 2008 – 2009, curated by Darko Fritz (in ZKM co-curator was Peter Weibel).

More info:

Darko Fritz was born in 1966, in Croatia, and currently he lives and works in Amsterdam, Zagreb and Korčula. He is a media artist, curator, researcher and graphic designer. He studied architecture at the University of Zagreb and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam.
His work fills the gap between contemporary art practices and media art culture. Fritz’s work through its personal and social aesthetics obliges us to analyze both the technological determinism of contemporary times as well as the contradictions of contemporary aesthetics trapped in the conflict of real versus virtual. He has worked with video since 1988 and created his first computer-generated environment in 1988 [Cathedral]. He is using the Internet as artistic medium since 1994. Recently he has been developing horticultural units [flower/organic installations] in public spaces, transgressing the contents from the digital domain.
He is member of artists associations and societies: AICA (International Association of Art Critics); Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam; HDLU (Croatian Association of Artists) and ULUPUH (Croatian Association of Artists of Applied Arts).
His works are in the collections of Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb; Skopje City Museum; the World Bank, Washington; Museum of Applied Art, Zagreb, National Library, Zagreb.
Since 2006 he leads the gray) (area – space of contemporary and media art.
