This undergraduate thesis deals with the topic of computer graphics in the framework of the New Tendencies movement, which was a series of exhibitions and symposia presented to the public art in the period from 1961 to 1973 in Zagreb. The thesis describes in detail the origin and development of this branch of artistic activity and contextualizes its existence and legitimacy within the art, science and theory of art. Through the chapters considerable attention was paid to the issues of "scientification" of art, information theory and computer itself as a substitute for traditional art and its methods. The analysis of the most important theoretical texts published in exhibition catalogues and magazine Bit international shows the intellectual processes and the efforts of the protagonists of the New Tendencies movement, who, through their own actions, created a completely new artistic direction of computer art. Also, the thesis discusses the role of computers and machines in a man's life, as well as the process of scientification and automatism of his life through the theory of cybernetics and the physical entry of computers into his life space. Finally, the analysis of computer graphics and computer art emphasizes the importance of these processes in the relationship between art and science, but also contextualizes these topics within the history of art of the last century, which often ignores this extremely rich and diverse period.
