A project by cabello/carceller

The exhibition 'Permission for the Revolution. Attitudes toward weak censorship and their modes of operation' explores and debates about new forms of resistance by citizens in societies that call themselves or are nominated as democratic. The project is presented as a proposal that attempts to discuss the new strategies of content flow control, primarily studying the situation from a gender perspective, since it's been the artists working from feminist positions and references who have more clearly modified the hegemonic imaginary in recent decades.

The artists in this exhibition contribute to show the complicated processes that construct the mechanisms of domination applied to particular individuals. These mechanisms have been softened in democratic contexts, that is to say, they are not usually exercised through physical violence as used to be in the past, but instead they have been diversified to reach a highly effective level of sophistication. In this sense, feminist analyses of the mechanisms of patriarchal domination are key to understand the ways and means in which citizenship can be controlled. In the works shown in this exhibition a range of questions and reflections that deal with the social space can be perceived, considering it not only as a space occupied by each individual, but also as a mental structure that shapes the society we are part of.

Artists: Johanna BILLING (Sweden), Cecilia BARRIGA (Chile), CHTO DELAT? (Russia), Andrea GEYER (Germany/USA), Marina GRIZNIC/ Aina SMID (Slovenia), Sanja IVEKOVIĆ (Croatia), Ana NAVARRETE (Spain), Martha ROSLER (USA) and Julika RUDELIUS (Holland). + huelgadearte&wearenotvictims
