Jošt questions assumed cultural roles by engaging artistic practices that include participation, collaboration, out-of-gallery and public space presentation and practices that are concerned with “other-than-human-person”. After obtaining MFA in new media art at TransArt Institute, Berlin, where he was researching “Art Operating Systems”, Jošt is developing practice that he refers to as “Gesamtkunstwerk”, a total work of art that includes humans and non humans.

Jošt is one of the founders of Culture and Education Association (UKE) focusing on international collaboration, exchange and networking in transdisciplinary practices connecting consciousness, ecology, environment, art and technology. He was also editor of “MegaZine04 -Magazine for Reality Hacking” in Zagreb, Croatia. He received Croatian Ministry of Culture award for best collaborative electronic audio work in 2007. and first prize for best locative collaborative work at festival in Belo Horizonte in Brazil 2009. His independent research includes OIEAUS (relation of art and renewable energy) and MobileArtDome (mobile hybrid cultural space). Recent exhibitions include BBD, Berlin, MZA Ecoworld, Bangalore India, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka, Croatia. Jošt is living and working at the ongoing art project “Center for Creative Solutions” (C4CS), off-the-grid premises in rural countryside.
