Opening 4 September 17:00

The Value of Nothing explores the effects and consequences of the logic of the market as the main value system in our society. The market and money are indicators for determining value, but what exactly is measured, and what is overlooked? What are other forms of economic exchange, and what does that mean for the conditions and experience of value manifested herein? Also, how is the value of art determined?

Apart from gazing at the wonderful view from our cabin, we'll resume our work on the trial as the stage and choreography of conflict, investigating the intersections between art and law. The residency is in three parts, which will allow us to continue working on this throughout 2015.

"Las obras remarcan la vida (política) del objeto como material valorable en la comunidad a través del trabajo acumulado para su realización. En un capitalismo feroz que nos arrastra a todos como en una riada, proyectos como este devienen asideros donde agarrarse, esperanzas desde los márgenes." - Una reseña de Avelino Sala sobre la exposición en Galería ADN, Barcelona. Publicado en A*DESK Highlights.

We're happy to announce that our video Marea, or the ecological disaster as a cultural and political phenomenon will be shown in the group exhibition "Cómplices y Testigos” from 24 May to 31 July 2014, at ADN Galería in Barcelona.

Realized between 2002 and 2004, this work took as its subject the social mobilization triggered by the accident of the Prestige oil-tanker. Brought forth by one of the most intense social and political moments of the last decades in Spain, this mobilization could be said to have prefigured the rise of the 15M protests and the Occupy movement in 2011.

Pablo Uribe, Iratxe Jaio y Klaas van Gorkum
Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Montevideo, Uruguay

Del 10 al 18 de mayo, 2014  /  De 11 a 20 hs

Discursos encontrados confronta la obra Air discurso de Pablo Uribe y Últimas palabras de Iratxe Jaio y Klaas van Gorkum. Mientras que en Air discurso 5 actores de teatro interpretan sin palabras, sino mediante gestos y movimientos el discurso enunciado el 27 de noviembre de 1983 frente al Obelisco de los Constituyentes por Alberto Candeau -considerada como la proclama que dio inicio a la caída de la dictadura cívico-militar en Uruguay- , en Últimas palabras se toman fragmentos del alegato final de Astiz -condenado a cadena perpetua por crímenes de lesa humanidad por el Gobierno Argentino- los cuales son interpretados por un actor de teatro con las constantes correcciones de un instructor de oratoria.

"The margins of the factory" is featured as a Critic's Pick in Artforum.
The practice of Rotterdam-based artists Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum explores social transformation in the West brought forth by late capitalism. In their latest exhibition, organized by the independent curatorial group Latitudes, they examine the “image” of labor that has emerged as economic systems based on Ford-inspired models of mass production have gradually been replaced by immaterial, service-based economies.

David G. Torres habla sobre "Los Márgenes de la Fábrica" comisariado por Latitudes en ADN Platform.

"Con el título genérico de Los márgenes de la fábrica los artistas presentan dos proyectos complementarios en los que insisten en desarrollar unas propuestas que tienen mucho de estudio sociológico, búsqueda de los propios orígenes y arqueología del trabajo."
