    The Day My Internet Art Paid Off

    Željko Badurina, Maja Čule, Hrvoje Hiršl, Dina Karadžić, Tea Stražičić, Igor Štromajer

    Curated by Irena Borić, Martina Kontošić, Renata Šparada

    The Day My Internet Art Paid Off! is an exhibition featuring works by Željko Badurina, Maja Čule, Hrvoje Hiršl, Dina Karadžić, Tea Stražičić and Igor Štromajer, all of which touch upon different economic aspects dictated by new relations online. Tabs, procrastination, self-promotion, collaboration, spam, comment sections, shares, likes – these are all fragments, be it material or digital, of circulating data. On the web, the circulation performed by numerous users gives value and power to the circulated information. Therefore, internet economies do not only allude to typical digital financial transfer protocols, but are also based, to a large extent, on generating symbolic capital, i.e., values. Bearing in mind the context of the web as a corporate and supervised medium, the exhibition brings to the forefront the artist's reactionary role in relation to the economic models developed on the 2.0 web.

    Curators: participants of the Curator's Platform, mentored by Ana Kovačić, assisted by Mateja Kuka.

    Participants of this year's Curator's platform conducted a research of a very interesting andactual field . They were divided into six different groups which were dealing with: definitionof artist's book, historical development, visual poetry, contemporary artist's book anddesigner - curator based collaboration. Through numerous examples the exhibition will show the results of their research.
    There are many different definitions of what an artist's book is and many different ways inwhich it can take form. What makes the artist's book a specific medium when comparedto other forms of artistic expression is the fact that one can hold it, read it, touch it andconsequently the artist can achieve an intimate relationship with the audience. The artistsperceive it as a space they can fill and in doing so, transfer their ideas, attitudes, intimatereflections or speak out loud about topics they are interested in.
