audience of V2_East Syndicate. I love you.

     For some decades, criticism of the media has not been merely the domain
of theoretical discourse, but also of
artistic practice. Regarding the historic development and multiplicity of
these media themselves, this practice shows itself
in various forms: television or the Internet are the subject of artist's
thoughts which can materialise as an installation, or
a photograph, by mediation, in the mass media itself; the "mainstream" film
can become the content of a video, or an
experimental film; etc.
     Media in Media is an exhibition project which will present artistic
concepts focusing on mass media, their
function, psycho-social and ideological effects, and aesthetic qualities.
The selection of exhibited works was not confined
by formal characteristics, but was intended to represent different artistic
media: video, ambient installation, photography,
avant-garde (experimental) film and the Internet. The exhibition is not a
revue, but highlights the particular historic
positions of established artists, and the current positions of younger artists.

     Vanesa Cvahte 

(The exhibition project Media in Media conceived by Vanesa Cvahte has been
selected by the SCCA Board out of all the proposals received as a response
