CONEXIÓN REMOTA: @ Macba - Barcelona

CONEXIÓN REMOTA is a selection of projects, curated by Roberta Bosco
and Stefano Caldana, as an online project of "ANTAGONISMOS. CASE STUDIES",
an exhibition of political art curated by Manuel Borja-Villel director of
Macba - Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (

and from 26 July to 14 October 2001
at Macba - Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (Spain).

"This selection is not based on a need to monumentalise and much
less to objectivise it or turn it into a fetish. Its aim is to establish
connections and open up a new area for debate, confrontation and critical
analysis. As well as testifying to the ever-increasing and improving digital
art efforts, all the projects selected reveal processes in which a large
number of people have intervened, dealing with the exchange of information,
action and reaction, real problems and situations which demand a stance.
Their authors want them to become catalysts for artistic expression and
public response, to serve as detonators and to point fingers, to make
understanding easy and if necessary, confrontation too."
