Art criticism and the semantic construction of the concept of Design

VUKIC, Fedja;

Full Article:

Art critics contributed significantly to the development of a semantic understanding of the concept of design in the local history of industrial modernization during the 1950s and 1960s in the Socialist Federative republic of Yugoslavia. The needs of growing urban areas and rapid developing industrial production of material goods were seen as a principal social task. Along with public efforts by architects and artists, art critics were among the key promoters of the public need for industrial design. The contradiction of promoting mass consumption to the egalitarian ambition of the ruling party ideology was rarely seen as an issue in the focus of art criticism as applied to everyday objects.
