An exhibition on new paradigms of violence
While creating this exhibition, in September 2021, 230 people were killed in the conflict between Gaza and Israel, 2 people died in a driverless Tesla car crash and almost 11.000 people were evicted in Spain. Violence has always been a part of human history, but today it presents itself in ways we never could have imagined. Technology, capitalism, new urban lifestyles and the commodification of security have provided violence with a solid ground from which to flourish. It evolves with us, taking up new spaces wherever we go. If we want to tackle the challenges these new violences present we first need to understand how they have come to be normalised. 730 hours of Violence aims to shed light on such complex realities whilst building critical discussions with citizens about how we collectively see and relate to new paradigms of violence.
Our curiosity for contemporary challenges has taken us to develop pieces around various topics, ranging from feminism and its importance nowadays (You Had to Be a Feminist Exhibition) to the Internet and how to navigate it democratically (The Internet Nation Exhibition). We have also worked on self-commissioned projects such as our recent visual essay on Infoxication (Data Heartbreak) or our first Exhibition Lab focused on Violence (730 hours of violence).
