Cacotopía. FOKUS’12 | Nikolaj Kunsthal. Copenhagen

FOKUS FESTIVAL
Screen from Barcelona has been invited to participate at FOKUS  Art Festival 2012, the second edition of the festival initiated by Nikolaj Kunsthal in  2012.

Cacotopía (Daniel G. Andujar and Avelino Sala)2011. 23m 45 s. from avelino sala on Vimeo.

On this ocasion SFB has curated a programme that reflects on the different modes and strategies of production. We believe that these are key issues of interest to artists, institutions and agents involved in the creative cultural field, enabling the collective discussion in the frame of FOKUS Festival. Furthermore, the selection will allow us to map out our network methodology and explain our premises as a platform and a festival.

On another hand and beyond the strand of production, the pieces also share affinities in that they all portray a series of heterotopias, in the sense described by M. Foucault: they explore landscapes and places which encapsulate an strong “other” imaginaries, different from what they appear to be, and are situated at the heart of society –be this symbolical, historical or physical- but constitute its margins, its limits. It is in a way an attempt to trace a spectral geography of histories blurred by official narratives, the suspended time of the prison, the remnants of the spectacle, and the dystopias of the metropolis.http://www.kunsthallennikolaj.dk/pdf/fokus12program.pdf
