BAC! Festival 07 – international festival of contemporary art in barcelona eighth edition
november 26 – december 20, 2007
International ArtExpo and Luca Curci in partnership with Gigi R. Harrington (director of La Santa), presents After Urban, a selection of 9 videoartists on the theme of contemporary city.
La Santa. Space of Experimentation and Creation organizes the eighth edition of BAC! Festival 07, which will take place the coming months of November and December in Barcelona. This year´s edition revolves around the concept of “Babylon”, in search of a new vision of contemporary city through various artistic proposals.
The video selection that I have curated analyzes new frontiers of communication by engaging encounters that offspring imagery, new technology, ethnic culture, esthetic surgery, theoretical manifestoes, all within a universe of artistic mutation. Fusion of new ideas occur together with the process of mass unification in an era of polyphonic designing of new theories and languages. The building of connections creates multiple scenarios and new intersections that hybrid the infinite possible languages, all throughout a communicative dissolve in which the act of difference takes place.
