Where are we going?

Opening: November 9, 2017, 20 pm

Location: 0 Floor

Es Baluard presents «Where are we going», an exhibition that forms part of the trilogy revolving around the context of the Mediterranean immersed in unresolved individual and collective contradictions: political and social transformations that represent a change of a global nature and question the idea of frontier, altering the models of identity and management of the conflicts of a continuous present marked by migration and diaspora. Different creators and thinkers have dealt with these subjects – now openly – in the history of contemporary art, from a more encrypted angle.

This exhibition proposes a polyphonic conversation between videos, installations, photographs and documents, belonging to artists with extremely diverse origins. Ergin Çavuşoğlu  (Bulgaria, 1968), Félix González-Torres (Cuba,1957-United States,1996), Carmela Gross (Brazil, 1946), Paulo Nazareth (Brazil, 1977), Núria Güell (Spain, 1981) and Walid Raad-The Atlas Group (Lebanon, 1967), activate an imaginary dialogue and call for discernment of the reasons why individuals move, struggle or risk everything – even their lives and those of their loved ones – for ideals, fatalities or simply out of desperation.
