    Luciano Fabro (27/11/2014)

    Palacio de Velázquez
    Exhibitions

    The work of Luciano Fabro (Turin, 1936-Milan, 2007) expands the expressive possibilities of sculpture in the second half of the 20th century. His art associates the use of simple and common materials that redefine the nature of the object and its space with a constant poetic reflection on the practice of sculpture, evident in the numerous texts in which the artist has always related thought with experimentation in new practices.

    This anthological exhibition, the first to be held since the artist's death, gathers a constellation of works that are fundamental for an understanding of the singularity of Fabro's oeuvre and features over 60 artworks from diverse private collections and international public institutions.

    Exhibitions

    In the installation designed specifically for the Palacio de Cristal, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller appeal to our voyeuristic condition, urging us to move closer and peer into a solitary roulotte. Inside it we come across a woman that appears to be sleeping along with a series of marionettes and puppets in the process of being created and the figure of an old draughtsman that appears to be pondering how to breathe life into them. The scene is replete with metaphorical connotations that prompt a reflection on themes such as the passing of time, the humbling power of the imagination (both individual and collective) and the servitudes and limitations of the creative impulse.

    January 21 - May 4, 2015

    Daniel García Andújar (Almoradí, 1966) is a visual artist, theorist and activist that is difficult to classify, and is considered one of the most pre-eminent representatives of so-called Net.art in Spain. With an interest in constructing a cultural discourse through digital media and IT and communication technologies, the artist operates from public space, making use of the city and the Network as territories from which to conduct his work.

    Degenerated Political Art. Ethical Protocol

    Can strategies of capital be replicated to build horizontal social dynamics? As part of an action in the Really Useful Knowledge exhibition, artists Núria Güell and Levi Orta donate bank accounts in tax havens to a group of activists, who will use this route to attack the system that produces it. The project culminates in this seminar, which is organised by both artists.

    Trevor Plagen and Jacob Appelbaum. Transmediale Festival

    Trevor Paglen and Jacob Appelbaum in conversation

    The work of artist Trevor Paglen approaches the interferences between technology, power and the public sphere by using specific spaces in art. As part of the exhibition Really Useful Knowledge, Paglen invites Jacob Appelbaum to discuss the rise of government surveillance and the way in which this affects people’s freedom and their ability to act. Appelbaum is a computer security researcher and hacker and is part of the Tor Project, which advocates internet privacy. He also collaborated with Wikileaks in relation to the leaks involved in the Snowden case.

    The exhibition analyse Goeritz’s stints in Spain and North Africa in the 1940s, along with the international expansion of his career, which, in a Cold War context, occurred in the wake of his return to Mexico and which saw him become one of the key figures in the cultural landscape of that country.
