Darkness Artistic Poetics of Violence

Project curated by Manuel García

Throughout history, violence has impregnated a significant portion of all artistic and cultural manifestations. This phenomenon has intensified in recent decades. In fact, it has been turned into a regular presence in our lives by dint of an unrelenting media bombardment which seems to bee high profitable and guarantee large audiences.

Starting out from heterogeneous aesthetic premises, ranging from the representation of religious rituals in ancestral cultures, advertising and the world of fashion, to situations from sports or the intimate sphere of the family, the phenomenon of violence is the axis around which the works included in this projects revolve, made by artists from all around the world, providing testimony to one of the most sinister aspects of the human condition.
