As curator, I am exploring how digitalization has made photography heterogeneous, multiple and interrelated to other media; from print to online streaming and processing via software that translates audio and sonic impulse into images. Photography is now an environment of relation-building, identity-shaping: a ‘territory’ not merely digital, and not exclusively online.

The key shift I am exploring in my body of curatorial research is how an image now is ‘performing’ as well as ‘representing.’ Building upon the work of theorists and image makers such as Vilém Flusser, Marshall McLuhan, Franco Vaccari, Hito Steyerl and Lauren Cornell, I combine a series of curated visual outputs including online platforms (www.expandedphoto.com), lectures (like this one), and exhibitions involving contemporary digital practitioners (e.g. Erica Scourti, Oskar Schmidt, Christopher Meerdo, Clare Strand, Margo Wolowiecz, Thomson & Craighead, Thomas Galler, Eva & Franco Mattes, and others).

Expanded Violences by Brumaria

Posted in nEws and rEleases, shortEssays/cortiSaggi [English/Italian] by alcramer on September 27, 2010

Expanded Violences is a project realized in the framework of Manifesta 8, The European Biennial of Contemporary Art.

IS VIOLENCE
THE ONLY MEANS TO CHANGE THIS
DEADLY WORLD?

Expanded  Violences

Throughout the past two years in Brumaria, we have been working on and over multifocal-terrorism art-war relations. A product of this has been a series of forays— Art and Terrorism, Iconoclasm-Iconolatry, and now Expanded Violences— which, by means of different formats—research projects, exhibition projects, artistic work, seminars and publications—have permitted us to affirm the amplitude of these topics and the conceptual, thematic, and discursive gaps that today persist in the art institution both in the Spanish region and in the world of global art.

We understand that we neither want nor are able to isolate contemporary art from the world in which it is produced, commercialized, or museumized, especially if we keep in mind the present characteristics of armed conflict and if we affirm that we live in a state of permanent war. Although in the past war (the institutionalized phase of violence) defined itself as a conflict among sovereign nation-states, given that in the last few decades this sovereign authority of the nation-state has been decaying in favour of the emergency of a supranational sovereignty, the nature and the conditions of both war and political violence in our present times have necessarily and considerably changed, leaving behind the memory of the defeated, the humiliated, the offended…the murdered. In our current environment war is a global phenomenon. We live in a state of ubiquitous, brutal, and permanent “civil war”: a new and monstrous state of exception.

Expanded Violences focuses its attention on a triangulation between violence as representation strategically administered by power, the operation by which mass media and the use of art form a critical vertex of this multiple dialectic. If it seems obvious that there exists interdependence between political and economic power and the strategic operations used in mass media, the role of art is not so clear in this context.
