Accomplices & Witnesses: Group Show
With works by Iván Argote, Marcos Ávila-Forero, DEMOCRACIA, mounir fatmi, Núria Güell, Iratxe Jaio & Klaas Van Gorkum, Bouchra Khalili, Levi Orta & Mireia Sallarès.
The exhibition “Accomplices and Witnesses” is based on the idea of the artist as an accomplice and witness of social dynamics requiring an active implication, commitment and a positioning which goes beyond the act of denouncing. The works exhibited are introduced as propositional statements of intentions, whether in a documentary way, process-based or object-based productions, from artists that question the hegemonic notion of community built around the fiction of individualism, through a capacity of affective and effective transformation.
Being spectator of our own reality is not an option anymore: taking action, finding oneself implicated and taking a stand is an answer that arise new paradigms. The strength of some compromised artists is increasingly taking value in front of the decline of some dynamics showing signs of obsolescence and of a society based on the hegemony of powers.
