Abstract

The author summarizes important events in the development of computer graphics and its application in fine art and animation in Czechoslovakia up to the year 1989, when the Iron Curtain fell. The general situation and political atmosphere in the country and their influences on contemporary art are also discussed, as are scientific and technological developments in the computer industry, artists using computer graphics, and computer art exhibitions and publications. A brief summary of technological development in former Countries of the Mutual Economic Cooperation (COMECON) is included.
