'Hic et Nunc' at Temp

'Hic et Nunc' at Temp

A curatorial project presenting a selection of twelve videoart pieces that show how art can function as a symbolic act of resistance to face the amends of our society.

This exhibition presents twelve audiovisual works that react to social inequalities and political humiliations, by providing an interpretation of politics based on the idea of the aristotelic zoón politikón (political animal).

The project aims to reflect on the existing relationship between art and resistance. The context references the most immediate present, putting an emphasis on the need to find the origin of the current political-social slit from the classical theorization of what should be the State. 

Hic et Nuc is curated by Imma Priento. The featured artists are Daniel G. Andújar, Eugenio Ampudia, María Cañas, Mateo Maté, Chus García-Fraile, Jordi Colomer, PSJM, Avelino Sala, Marta de Gonzalo y Publio Pérez, Núria Güell, Jorge García, Pelayo Varela.
