Imagining Memory: Between Anaesthesia and Amnesia
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'.
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.
