To Brush Against the Grain of History

Tangent Projects, Project 6 - To Brush Against the Grain of History
October 26th - November 23rd 2018, Hans & Fritz Contemporary, Barcelona.

Opening night October 25th 8pm. There will also be a second event to coincide with LOOP Barcelona Festival on Saturday November 10th from 12pm. All welcome! 

We are very pleased to present, in collaboration with HANS & FRITZ CONTEMPORARY and Loop City Screen Festival, Tangent Projects, Project 6 "To Brush Against the Grain of History". An exhibition that scrutinises history and in particular, the production of history.

The title, "To Brush Against the Grain of History", is the ultimate line from chapter seven of Walter Benjamin's final work "On the Concept of History". In which, Benjamin correlates history to the spoils of the war victorious - a past that is empathetic to the victors and their heirs, handed down from one to the next without a great deal of debate.

For this exhibition, we will be showing video works by artists Eli Cortiñas (Spain – based in Berlin), Christopher Kline (USA – based in Berlin) and Katy B Plummer (USA – based in Sydney), that seek to remedy this by asking us to listen to new narratives and in turn, produce alternative stories – sometimes personal and sometimes even with song!

Taking our cue from Marcel Proust's seminal work "In Search of Lost Time", the artists we are working with on this exhibition are all in some way or other drawn to the nostalgic elements of our common experience.

Omul mulțime/Hombre Masa - Lolo & Sosaku

Omul mulțime/Hombre Masa - Lolo & Sosaku

The exhibition Omul mulțime by Barcelona based artists Lolo & Sosaku, is an exhibition in two parts, taking place simultaneously at the Palace of Culture and at Borderline Art Space. Omul mulțime aims to connect both spaces and to reflect on their social scope, its inherent connotations or adapted expectations.

The title of the show hints to Ortega y Gasset’s concept of the hombre masa (mass man), through which he examines the political and social crisis of Europe and of Western civilization in general. His warning against the conformity of the masses, and their tendency to negate individual creativity and freedom, was prescient - anticipating the great and crushing mass movements of ideologies that have dominated Europe and the world for a considerable time - and is still relevant today.

There will be two opening receptions, one at 6.00pm at the Palace of Culture and the second starting at 7.00pm at Borderline Art Space. Please join us at one or both venues, as we celebrate the opening of Tangent Projects, Project 4 - Omul mulțime - Lolo y Sosaku.
