Xcèntric: Austerity measures Thursday December 20th, 20h Xcèntric CCCB, Montalegre, 5, 08001 Barcelona
Presentation by João Laia.
This video programme, curated by João Laia and Andrey Shental, examines the notion of austerity not just in the sense we have become used to hearing it used in the political discourse of the present crisis, but as a creative tool. The films included present an inventory of poor materials and marginal techniques (such as found footage and low-resolution video), much used on the Internet but not so much in artistic circles, where they continue to shock.
