DislocationsVenue: Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb
Curators: Lanfranco Aceti
Date: 12th September 2011
In collaboration with the ISEA2011, Istanbul, International Symposium on Electronic Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb opened its autumn season with the art program on the Media Façade that presented five international artists, pioneers of contemporary geometric and digital arts.
Dislocations was part of the Official Parallel Program of the 12th Istanbul Biennial. Dislocations, an art program of re-contextualization and transmediations, saw the participation of Songul Boyraz, David Cotterrell, Charles Csuri, Mathias Fuchs and Jeff Conefry & Danielle Roney.
Re-interpretations, misinterpretations and un-related contexts create new modalities of perception and understanding, leading to the rediscovery of the self and human commonalities beyond local realities and globalized stereotypes. Dislocations presented artworks that are inspired by or reference acts of war and the dislocated realities that we live in.
For its world premiere Dislocations introduced to the world audience Random War, the new transmediated artwork on Facebook by the digital pioneer Charles Csuri, inspired by a 1967 plotted drawing by the same title.
