Moderne i suvremene umjetničke mreže, umjetničke grupe i udruženja. Organizacijski i komunikacijski modeli suradničkih umjetničkih praksi 20. i 21. stoljeća

HRZZ projekt

Research topics of this project are the organization and communication models embedded into artist networking and artist collaborative practices of the 20th and 21st century, as they are manifested in the Croatian art of that period. Project initial hypothesis is that artist networks, art groups and art associations form the most important platform of cultural exchange in modern and contemporary visual arts due to the similarity of underlying organization and communication models regardless of geo-cultural location at which they appear. A degree of their diversity in art practice of particular local community at particular historical moment is proportional to the dynamics and volume of its participation in the international/cross-cultural exchange. To prove our hypothesis and identify, describe and explain these organization and communication models as generally applicable – which is the main objective of the project – we shall investigate Croatian artist networking and collaborative practices on the background of similar phenomena in other European countries and with regard to poetic requirements of different periods in modern and contemporary art, conventions of social interactions and available techniques/technologies of communication. As the methodology of art history does not meet the complexity of the research topic, we shall develop interdisciplinary methodological apparatus combining knowledge and analytic tools of art history, sociology and information science. Considerable amount of data collected through the extensive infield research will be stored in Croatian Artists Networks Information System developed in the course of the project and supporting network visualization techniques as a cognitive research tool for experimental presentation of our research results framed with the appropriate structural narratives (textual, visual, GIS data). Project results will be also presented in 2 books, 7 articles, and at the closing international conference. Duration of the project is 48 months.
