He understood that there was a performative logic to the nature of law, which was the result of the fundamental indeterminacy of legal discourses. It allowed him to transform a political trial from a mere instrument of power into a cultural artefact that was capable of provoking a public...

Avelino Sala sobre 'Los márgenes de la fábrica', en A*DESK

"Las obras remarcan la vida (política) del objeto como material valorable en la comunidad a través del trabajo acumulado para su realización. En un capitalismo feroz que nos arrastra a todos como en una riada, proyectos como este devienen asideros donde agarrarse, esperanzas desde los márgenes." - Una reseña de Avelino Sala sobre la exposición en...

Work at the margins

Jaime Cuenca wrote about "Work in progress" and "Producing time in between other things" for the catalog, published by Sala Rekalde, that came out on occasion of our solo exhibition curated by Alex Baurés at FRAC Aquitaine.

Wrong choices

“It is a privilege to perform this transfer of sovereignty in the face of history, or rather: in the presence of God, who alone knows why this union in freedom was not achieved earlier nor later, and who knows of the generations' failures, but who also sees how we may serve the plan for the progress of mankind."

Het Democratisch Experiment

'De hoorzittingen zijn een vergrootglas op het proces van democratisering. Je legt alles bloot, ook de pijnpunten. De Occupy’ers zijn positief over de gesprekken. Het heeft ook een therapeutische functie: mensen zijn moe en wij luisteren naar ze.' Uiteindelijk willen de kunstenaars een compilatie maken van de twintig gesprekken en die op internet...
