Scena artistica new-media ceheasca a avut un start mai greu, totusi, in ultimii ani a reusit sa transforme acest ”handicap” intr-un avantaj. Avand in vedere ca arta video si alte tendinte ale anilor 80 si 90 nu s-au inradacinat in arta academica ceheasca, tinerii artisti de azi au libertatea de a experimenta si de a relationa cu mai multe traditii, tendinte si tehnologii. Expozitia de la Galeria Noua va prezenta proiecte recente, care demonstreaza aceasta stare experimentala din Cehia – nici chiar politic, nici chiar tehnologic. Cosmopolitic. Un melanj de conexiuni intre natura, societate, tehnologie, dar si trecut, prezent si viitor.

ENGLISH VERSION

The exhbition consists of three sections:
I. Posthuman networks
Art as exploration of collectives of human and machines and the limitis between physis and techné.
II. Global networks
Art as exploration of new distribution channels and popular media: world records, torrents etc.
III. Post-totalitarian networks
Art as exploration of technology, time and politics: Google map as the camera to the past, video as a mean to understand our present, politics and art.

Czech new media art scene could be characterized by a latecomer strategy, which in recent years is turning disadvantages into sources of advantage. Since video art and other 80’s and 90’s trends were never strong on the Czech art academies, young artists are free to experiment and often have a very promiscuous relation to different traditions, trends and technologies.  The exhibition will present projects from recent years that demonstrate this playful and experimental strategy, which is neither purely political nor technological. It is cosmopolitical in a sense that it tries to test and examine different networks between nature, society and technology but also history, present and future. The interconnection of globalization, evolutionary and technological processes in this artworks lead us to different versions and views of our common world but also art.
