XVII IMAGE SYMPOSIUM
THE RUSTLE OF IMAGES

JUN  20 – 23. 2010
 

DIRECTED BY AURORA FERNÁNDEZ POLANCO

 

"The rustle is the noise of what is working well" (R. Barthes)

 

As a means of opposing the inevitable media noise, certain artistic productions are stimulated by the political opportunities that are afforded by exchanging images in the global visual culture. In order to think with images, some people engage in strategies that redefine, confront, alter in some way or re-edit the media; others decide to conceal visibility and flirt with the “inframince”; yet others embark on a type of systemic resistance that places the emphasis on disobedience. Everyone, however, is careful to preserve the whispers of the images we share as a healthy form of collective knowledge.
