MACBA presents the exhibition MACBA Collection. Martha Rosler: God Bless America!

Coinciding with Loop Festival, MACBA has brought together a selection of Works of Martha Rosler from MACBA Collection by Tanya Barson, Chief Curator of the museum

MACBA. Martha Rosler. God Bless America!
Exhibition from 18 May to 15 October 2017

A pioneer in the 1970s of the use of video as a tool for social analysis, Martha Rosler (New York, 1943) continues to be relevant for her political engagement and feminist perspective. For almost fifty years, her works have offered a critical examination of the workings of contemporary culture.

While her career has encompassed performance, photography, installation and essay writing, Rosler is perhaps best known for her work in video. MACBA Collection. Martha Rosler: God Bless America! focuses on Rosler's video production through eleven works spanning the 1970s to 2006. The show centres on the key thematic lines in Rosler’s work, where politics as the ideological exercise of power, class hierarchy and economic interest is addressed, especially through the enactment of U.S. imperialism and the social control of women’s bodies.

Together with anti-war videos, like the one that lends the exhibition its title, these works deal with themes such as immigration, labour exploitation, the complicity between multinational corporations, the U.S. government and dictatorial regimes of Latin America, and the transgressions of private life by state power. In a second, yet related, group of videos, Rosler foregrounds gender analysis, interrogating the domestic world and the instrumentalisation of the female body by the mass media, fashion and advertising, as well as by the scientific, medical and legal spheres. Referring to her work, Rosler has written: ‘I want to make art about the commonplace, art that illuminates social life.’

Forensic Architecture. Towards an Investigative Aesthetics, at MACBA

► An exhibition that challenges us to consider how contemporary artistic practices and digital technologies can be geared up to engage the reality of post-truth. It shows the work of Forensic Architecture, a research group formed by artists, architects, lawyers, activists and theorists.

► It is supported by the EU’s Culture Programme within the framework of L’Internationale, a museum network whose members will open exhibitions simultaneously. Inaugural events will be streamed live.

► Inaugural discussion between investigative judge Baltasar Garzón, his collaborator Manuel Vergara, former Middle East correspondent for TVE, Yolanda Álvarez,and Eyal Weizman and Rosario Güiraldes (FA) on the use of evidence, activism, the law and politics in the so-called age of post-truth.

Title: Forensic Architecture. Towards an Investigative Aesthetics Opening: Thursday, 27 April 2017, 7.30 pm Dates: 28 April – 15 October 2017 Co-production: MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona and MUAC Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City Director of Forensic Architecture: Eyal Weizman Curator: Rosario Güiraldes Conceptualisation: Eyal Weizman, Rosario Güiraldes, Anselm Franke, Christina Varvia

‘Architecture’? ‘Forensic’? These are terms that, when brought together, shift each other’s meaning, giving rise to a different mode of practice. In 2010, Eyal Weizman (Haifa, 1970) created the Forensic Architecture (FA) research agency based at Goldsmiths, University of London. It brings together archives of evidence on contemporary conflicts, creating new analysis methodologies as a form of political intervention in the field of human rights. It is formed by a multidisciplinary team of architects, artists, activists, scientists, lawyers and filmmakers who work to uncover State violence by confronting facts with official accounts. To do this they expand architecture beyond its own limits. Architecture, understood as a ‘political visual form’ using buildings as sensors that accumulate information in their material deformation, is being asked here to include forensic practices.

MACBA presents "Against Photography. An Annotated History of the Arab Image Foundation", a monographic exhibition by Akram Zaatari

► The largest solo exhibition in Spain dedicated to Akram Zaatari, artist and co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation (AIF).

► A subjective reflection on the AIF and its evolution through the work of Zaatari, the exhibition brings together some twenty series of works (photographs, videos, installations and objects), most of them new.

Title: Akram Zaatari. Against Photography. An Annotated History of the Arab Image Foundation Opening: Thursday, 6 April 2017, 7.30 pm Dates: 7 April – 25 September 2017 Organisation and production: Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea. MMCA Exhibition: April 2018 Curated by: Hiuwai Chu and Bartomeu Marí

Akram Zaatari (Sidon, Lebanon, 1966) is a prominent member of the generation of artists who emerged in Lebanon in the 1990s after the end of the civil war that ravaged the country for over fifteen years. He is also a co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation, a project promoted in the post-war years by artists and photographers to build from the inside alternative stories to the official visual history written by foreigners. Zaatari's artistic practice focuses on photographic objects, ‘photographic formations or emergences’ as he calls them. The back of a photograph can be as important as its front, as well as the signs that the passage of time leaves on the support. For Zaatari, collecting photographs is a way of undoing and rewriting that is no less important than the act of capturing images.

This exhibition stems from the interest in this critical intersection between the archive and artistic practices and brings together some twenty series of works, most of them new. Through photographs, videos, objects and installations, the exhibition presents a subjective look at the activities and evolution of the Arab Image Foundation, an institution that in its twenty year history has amassed over 600,000 images from the Near East and North Africa. The AIF collections demonstrate the great formal, technological and iconographic changes that have taken place in photography over the last 150 years. Akram Zaatari. Against Photography. An Annotated History of the Arab Image Foundation, curated for MACBA by Hiuwai Chu, will be shown until 25 September in Barcelona and will travel to the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, in 2018, where it will be curated by Bartomeu Marí.
