INSERT is the first retrospective exhibition of Croatian video art which gathers works arising from video techniques in the period from the early seventies of the last century to today. Video art in the past three and a half decades significantly defined the character of Croatian contemporary art in general, whether it was about the pioneer beginnings of video art when researching the possibilities of new technologies of a closed TV system or magnetic video recording for the first time, or whether it is about today’s digital technology and multichannel video works and interactive spatial installations. “The era of moving pictures”, as our time is often called, was undoubtedly marked by the experience of video art, and the exhibition will endeavour to illuminate some of the key moments in the development of this medium and its influence on visual arts.
The exhibition will present some one hundred artists who use the medium of video as their primary or secondary form of expression but also those creations that evolved as artistic ventures into another medium. Using the form of a multiperceptive presentation, the exhibition will represent over 200 video works in various forms, from single-channel television videos, spatial installations, and multichannel projections to interactive video pieces.
This exhibition will provide a chance to protect important video works in keeping with the most modern museological principles, and will be accompanied by documentation prepared as a digital database on Croatian video creation.
