Summary/Abstract: The paper outlines the development of art strategies seeking to criticize the principles of functioning of art institutions in the face of the condition of their democratism and transparency. ‘Institutional criticism’ means an art strategy emerging in the 1960s and developing until now, taking on an ever widening variety of forms of art practices such as activism, performance, site-specific as well as expressing itself in texts. This article gives the timeline of the development, the philosophical grounds as well as representatives of the movement. The sources used are texts by widely quoted researchers into the phenomenon and texts by the artists themselves.
