POSTCITY, First Floor, CAMPUS

This is a high-tech reconstruction of the Computer Graphic exhibition organized at the Brno House of Arts, Czech Republic, in February 1968 by the artist, curator and theorist Jiří Valoch (*1946). Valoch’s exhibition was one of the first gallery presentations of computer art worldwide and the very first exhibition of this art in the so-called Eastern Bloc.

The exhibition project called Computer Graphic Re-visited draws on archival research. However, it is not a reconstruction of the original event, but rather a remake balancing between a digital art-history experiment and the “remembering exhibition” (R. Greenberg).
