About the Event

1335MABINI proudly presents Cian Dayrit, Martin Krenn, Nikki Luna, Yoshinori Niwa and Hu Yun in a group exhibition titled 'Imagining Memory: Between Anaesthesia and Amnesia'. 

imagining memory

The use of slogans, abbreviations and acronyms as empty signifiers, representations of knowledge (data visualized in infographics and maps) are signs of the writing, re-writing and writing off of memory, memory that serves to construct an ‘us’ (vs. a ‘them’, the barbarians on the other side of the border, a man-made border), a community (from an ethnic group to the nation). Even though myth-memory is man-made, it does have real consequences in everyday life. And a group of international artists are invited to contribute (ongoing) research projects dealing with the workings of power-knowledge relationships. The exhibition will run until the 21st of April 2018.
