Raqs Media Collective – In the Open or in Stealth

MACBA - Museu Art Contemporani de Barcelona | Barcelona
€8 - €10
It is said that we know more about far-away galaxies than we do about the bottom of the earth’s oceans. One could say something similar about our relationship to the future. The distant future can seem more familiar than the deep present.

We are surrounded by an expressive and infinite plurality of possibilities. A line, as we know from mathematics, does not necessarily have to end. It is the future advancing upon us, or the past receding. Seen differently, a line can become a still point, and the junction for an infinite number of other lines, other possibilities. A line can become a wave. A wave can become an ocean. Beachcombing the seafloor in submarine darkness is art’s calling.

This exhibition will be a multi-layered site of discovery that explores the concept of a future in which multiple histories and geographies are placed in dialogue, giving way to a plurality of possibilities and queries by following paths that interlace, entwine and expose relations between objects, feelings and concepts, while simultaneously tracing indeterminate spaces between them.

Works by over twenty artists, including new commissions, will be presented. A working list of artists include: Liao Fei, NTU, Ivana Franke, Marzia Farhana, Lantian Xie, John Gerrard, Mehreen Murtaza, Geumhyung Jeong, The Archive of Lost Cosmonauts, as well as interventions by the Raqs Media Collective.

The exhibition is over since the 28/02/2019
