Screens are the battleground of a symbolic conflict that dates back to the beginnings of modernity. Every image that appears in them (big and small) has the potential to change the world, for better or for worse. With its multiplication, with the ubiquity of the audiovisual and with the exponential growth of the capitals associated with this industry, our society requires pieces that dispute the hegemonic, normative and industrial discourse. Today, cinema and audiovisual art become “experimental tactics of war” for activists committed to their aesthetic and political context across the planet.
We have then divided the exhibition into three concentric moments related to the place from which the discourse is produced and its area of influence: “HERE”, for projects that are concerned with micro-politics, “THERE” for those who dare to look at the Regional political junctures and “BEYOND” for those who analyze global problems.
The powerful manifest images – at the local, regional and global levels – that are part of this selection, seek to be facilitating agents of important and urgent struggles and social and political changes in contemporary society.
