The exhibition APPLIED PUBLIC is being formed around very close congenial and generational artistic positions of Sanja Iveković, Dalibor Martinis, Goran Trbuljak and the artistic group called Grupa Šestorice. Activities of this generation had begun within the so called “new artistic practice” of the 70ties, that in search for the new means of production and presentation of artworks redefined the status of the art and ways of mediation between the artist and the public raising questions about the “autonomy” of the museum/gallery system, role and work of public institutions and public space and inaugurated participatory model of work with tactical use of different media. Establishing a relation between the work of these artists and the exhibition “TV Gallery” that thematises series of tv shows by Dunja Blažević, exhibition APPLIED PUBLIC is trying to, from the artistic perspective, reflect on series of even today current questions concerned with the relation between medium of video and television in the broader constellation of artistic production and socially sensitive work of the artist in the context of the need to rethink the concept of monolithic public.
