From Concrete to Liquid to Spoken Worlds to the Word
|Author||Andrea Bellini ed.|
Six years after the exhibition From Concrete to Liquid to Spoken Worlds to the Word, and after a disastrous pandemic, the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève presents the catalogue for this complex, ambitious project. Even at such a remove, it felt important to retrace the fundamental stages of this event through critical essays, images of the works and installations, and the calendar of performances and poetry readings. The reason is simple: despite the undeniable weight of images in today's world, a keen interest in writing—rather surprisingly—has recently become a hallmark of many young artists' work. They use writing as a tool to understand the world and as the cornerstone of a critical method, analyzing the present and creating a performative, politically engaged language.
