About the exhibition:
The technological development of the internet has intensified the mediation of images to an unprecedented level, where we act as mediators, consumers, and (re)creators of images and content. In this new process of mediation, we, the viewers, content sharers, and creators, become both recipients and producers in a constant circulation of images. This change in the history of media has left a decisive mark on our culture, replacing the rigidity of materials with a series of flexible interactions on the basis of which we can understand our actions as new forms of mediation.
The exhibition will present the work of a current international art trend, an online and contemporary art community of Generation Y artists from the UK, Germany, Serbia, and Hungary, independent of geographical constraints. Intimately connected to both the material and virtual universes, Generation Y, also known as millennials, has grown into the world of the internet and social media, which has brought about significant changes in their perception of the world.
A new international exhibition at the MODEM Centre for Modern and Contemporary Art offers an insight into the diverse and personal exploration of the aesthetics of the internet through the work of twelve contemporary artists and a group of four artists, creating new images and forms that break free from the rigidity of materials and give further space to the mediation between the real and the virtual.
