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.
