press release

CAPITAL is a graphic performance, a theoretical meeting/workshop and an installation produced by Technologies To The People/MUSAC, for the Vitrinas Project.

Daniel G. Andújar’s artistic practice has, for years, been based on the rereading, reappropriation, and recontextualization of audiovisual material. CAPITAL departs from a workshop that took place in León, which allowed him to explore aspects of social cooperation as the best way to support a model that allows the distribution and expansion of its contents to the participants, the users, and the audience. It is a project that treats the cultural user as an active and emancipated individual, thus questioning the role of the audience as a passive element and a static consumer. Its most important objective is to create a direct dialogue between the participants, which will allow, from within the artistic practice, to generate reflection surrounding the new processes that are transforming our reality, but also lead, potentially, to a more open, complex, and critical reading of the themes that concern this artist.

This project is also an attempt to take on the archive as a way to manage collective intelligence, and to use it strategically to diffuse and generate public opinion. CAPITAL includes a research component, as well as the creation of a sort of map, an atlas that will allow us, however fleetingly, to travel through the chaos and help us discover that which the mechanisms of visibility of reality sometimes hide from us. This process has as its essential objective to create a close dialogue between the participants, which, parting from the artistic practice, will allow to generate platforms for reflection about the processes that transform our reality.
