Kruno Jošt, born 1973 in Zagreb, Croatia, studied painting at Art Academy Zagreb, continued studying “Free Direction” at Gerrit Rietveld Kunstakademie in Amsterdam, and obtained MFA in New Media Arts at Transart Institute, Berlin.
Using trandisciplinary methods while researching connections between art and (its) environment, he works in media of sound, video, performance, installation, on-line archives (blog, video and photo archives and interactive works) and living nature. Jošt most recent interest is in environmental art trough connections of humans, non humans and technology. Themes he often elaborates are autonomy and systems.
Recent exhibits include Stützpunkt Teufelsberg, Berlin, Tiefgarage Galery, Cologne, MZA Ecoworld in Bangalore India, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka, K6/4 Art Center in Ljubljana, Concent Art Gallery in Berlin and festivals such as Invisible Cities in Gorizia, Italy, ImproCon in Kumrovec, Croatia, Arte.mov festival in Belo Horizonte, Brazil; HAIP festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia; PD convention in Sao Paulo, Brazil; KIBLIX festival in Maribor, Slovenia…
At the moment Jošt is interested in off-the-grid aesthetics in connection to art, working on establishing Center for Creative Solutions - art work that questions positions of de-growth and environment, using with DIY and recycle aesthetic and permacultural principles.
