„Art is not dead: it never existed – Understanding power: the relation between art and the sacred“
Samstag 11. Juni 2016, 20 Uhr
„Art is not dead: it never existed“ aims to illustrate how the so called „art“ is profoundly related with the concept of sacred, that nowadays have just assumed a different shape, and how both of them are inevitably and constantly lured by the power in order to take a position of justification/legitimization.
Reflecting on Warburg’s Bilderatlas, and focusing on the processes that established and are establishing power (throughout different medium, such as video, installations, diagrams and external contributions), the project aims to become a device of comprehension, aware of the necessity of a continue renewal.
