ArtConcept presents program of multimedia exhibitions under the title All History is Contemporary History.

 

Being interdisciplinary, the program aims to investigate the intersections of history, science, technical progress on the territory of contemporary art.

 

Special focus is on the opposition cultural vs. natural and its ramifications on the human condition nowadays. The ensuing crisis of modern man will be the point of departure for a few explorations into controversies of classical and industrial societies, a rupture with tradition, a correlation of degeneration and sociopolitical decay.

 

Science-based approach, visual data and theoretical underpinnings of innovative research are integral to multimedia exhibits, comprising video art, documentary and experimental cinema, installations, animation, as well as classical medium of drawing.

 

Politics as being, political interaction of people, alienation of the individual from society and in relation to labor cannot but form a central axis for contemporary art expressions. This can be done through synergetic perspective drawn upon vestiges and witnesses from the fields of history, evolution, culture, scientific theory and practice.

 

Marco Brambilla. Evolution

 

2010, 3D high-definition blue-ray DVD, colour, sound, dimensions variable, edition of 8

 

In this magnificent, large-scale, stereoscopic, 3-D video collage, media artist Marco Brambilla presents a scrolling mural depicting the history of humankind, illustrating sweeping movements of world conflict through a cinematic lens by seamlessly remixing hundreds of individual channels of looped video gathered from Hollywood’s blockbuster films. Evolution (Megaplex) invites audiences to roam whimsically through the annals of time while casting a satirical look at the bombast of the big-budget “epic.”
