Watching You Watching Me. A Photographic Response to Surveillance

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 16:36:54 +0000

An exhibition at BOZAR in Brussels explores the intersection between photography and surveillance. Employing a dynamic range of approaches—from documentary to conceptual practice, from appropriation to street art—these 10 artists provide a satellite-to-street view of the ways in which surveillance culture blurs the boundaries between the private and public realm

Artists explore the ethical aspects of commercial DNA ancestry testing

Wed, 24 Jan 2018 16:28:42 +0000

Ancestry DNA testing has been widely embraced as a new way to understand our identity. But how does this removal of identity from its narrative and social dimension impact on understandings of race and relationships? And what is the scientific validity of this testing?

Artissima 2017: Butts, superheroes and flaccid guns

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 14:48:09 +0000

Part 2 of my cursory review of the Artissima art fair which took place in Turin back in early November. Yesterday, i talked photos, today will be a rapid fire of paintings, drawings, installations, etc. In no particular order and with as little commentary as possible

Artissima 2017: A quick run through some of my favourite photo works

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 15:02:20 +0000

I don’t normally write about art fairs but Artissima usually introduces me to so many new ideas, artists and way of representing the world that i can’t resist sharing some of the images of the event on the blog

Wed, 03 Jan 2018 14:00:47 +0000

Some 100 contributors document around 120 key buildings from this period, including many previously unpublished discoveries that are in acute danger of loss through neglect of intended demolition. Moreover, the book features overviews of brutalism in architecture in twelve regions around the world

Lyon Biennale. Floating Worlds: an ambivalent review

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 14:58:32 +0000

I was expecting the curator's ideas of transience, instability and uncertainties to be translated into powerful works that directly engage with some of today’s most pressing and depressing concerns. I got very little of that. I got plenty of clouds (including a couple of atomic ones), foam, puddles, waves and fountains though. Fortunately, the biennale also features a surprisingly high number of sound works, extraordinary visual and emotional experiences and, here and there, a couple of more politically-minded artworks

Gambiologia magazine: “The gambiarra movement”

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 15:12:37 +0000

Gambiologia is the Brazilian art and science of kludging. Someone with gambiarrá displays a cunning ability to improvise, kludge, hack and make do with whatever is available. Gambiologia, however, is far more than a demonstration of one’s own resourcefulness, it is also a political and ethical gesture. It questions industrial processes and mechanisms, rejects consumerism and postulates the need for greater autonomy
