Una riflessione a cura di Alessio Ascari sulla produzione delle immagini e su come gli artisti fanno riferimento o si appropriano delle tecniche di produzione delle immagini attingendo dalla pubblicita', dai mass media e dalla cultura contemporanea.
Kaleidoscope Project Space presents "An Image," a group show including works by Bernadette Corporation, Anders Clausen, Roe Ethridge, Harun Farocki, Nikolas Gambaroff, Massimo Grimaldi, David Jablonowski, Oliver Laric, Graham Little, Mathias Poledna, Timur Si-Qin, Lucie Stahl, Ger van Elk, and Ian Wallace.
The exhibition is curated by Kaleidoscope magazine's editor-in-chief Alessio Ascari and presents a multi-faceted reflection on image-making and how artists have addressed and appropriated modes of image production, post-production, collection and distribution in contemporary culture
Drawing connections to the groundbreaking experiments of Pop art, photo-conceptualism, and the Pictures generation, the show discusses the politics of images in the present tense, paying special attention to the strategies and dynamics of advertising and the mass media and to the evolved idea of representation in the current digital era.
A publication documenting the exhibited works will accompany the exhibition.
