Art i ciutat al segle XXI / Art and City in the 21st Century


Catalan , Spanish , English 15€ Buy

A look at the contemporary art of the decade 2000 to 2010 which was characterised by the escalation in global terror (since the 9/11 attacks on the United States in 2001) and the politics of fear that followed. The artists show us their experiences of the city of fear, of the tensions between individuals and the masses, of the urban landscape, and clearly show an unease and a shared universal pathos which, in spite of everything, allows us to recover the idea of a common aesthetic experience.
