Accomplices and Witnesses at ADN Galería

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.

The exhibition “Cómplices y Testigos” 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. Works are introduced as declarations of intent, proactive, documentary, process- and object-based, from artists that question the hegemonic notion of community built around the fiction of individualism, through the capacity for transformation that is affective as well as effective.

Artists: Ivan Argote, Marcos Ávila Forero, DEMOCRACIA, Mounir Fatmi, Núria Güell, Iratxe Jaio & Klaas van Gorkum, Bouchra Khalili, Levi Orta, Mireia Sallarés

Opening: May 24th from 12:00 to 16:30 - reservations by email:
