MUNTADAS, ACTIVATING ARTIFACTS: INTERPRETATION, TRANSLATION, EDUCATION

February 2 – March 10
Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture

Organized by Niels Van Tomme, director of de Appel Art Center in Amsterdam, Muntadas: Activating Artifacts: Interpretation, Translation, Education presents a site-specific exhibition project produced in close collaboration with world-renowned multimedia artist Antoni Muntadas (Spain, 1942). Through his work, Muntadas addresses social, political and communication issues, often investigating channels of information and the ways in which they may be used to censor or promulgate ideas.

This particular exhibition project addresses a gradual but steady shift in academia, from the initial American ideal of mass public education, which developed throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, towards an increasingly privatized and corporatized form of knowledge production as we know it today. 

Antoni Muntadas was born in Barcelona in 1942 and has lived in New York since 1971. Through his work, he addresses social, political, and communication issues such as the relationship between public and private space within social frameworks, as well as investigates channels of information and the ways they may be used to censor or promulgate ideas. His projects are presented in different media such as photography, video, publications, the Internet, installations, and urban interventions.
