curated by Hou Hanru and Anne Palopoli
On the occasion of Blackout, the project ideated by Jennifer Allora e Guillermo Calzadilla, artapes, the screening programme carried out in cooperation with In Between Art Film, will devote its new event to the presentation of all videos made by the artistic duo .
A video review accompanies the exhibition, lending it a historical dimension, with works that testify to the artists’ enduring commitment to the analysis of key concepts of contemporaneity such national identity, democracy, power, freedom, participation and social change.
The videos shot in Puerto Rico, China, Japan, Iran, the USA, Turkey, Italy and France allow us to better understand the centrality of sound in their work: voices, words, noises and music render the violence in political, economic and social relations explicit.
