The catalogue Blueprint accompanied the solo exhibition of Croatian
artist Igor Kuduz that contained 14 photographs (2 lightboxes) and
one newly produced video.
Photographs were shot during past 20 years (1991 – 2011) but
were produced and exhibited for the first time in 2011.
Technically various and imperfect as they were shot with various
cameras, from professional quality to mobile phone camera, they
reflect the changes in the technology of the period and show the
continuity of artistic attitude of an artist in the time between him
being 24 and 44 years of age.

The videotape Blueprint, composed of scenes from artists long
walks through the city suburbs makes it an example of the 21st
century flaneurism, recording the unseen, hidden and uncelebrated
details at the urban periphery.
The exhibition was the first in a row in a first exhibition space of the
Institute for Contemporary Art (established in 1993), opened after
18 years of activity.

The text in the catalogue by Janka Vukmir explains the process of
their making and their accordance with Kuduzes’ artistic decisions
and standpoints.
