The Forms of the Economy or the Economy of the Forms

Opening October 5th

Visits: wednesday, thursday and friday from 12a.m to 5 p.m, with previous inscription here

What forms does the economy adopt? What colour is it? How do we perceive the universe of intangibilities present in a statistical calculation? The visual language of abstraction and the expressive power of forms are at the core of the reflections of these three artists. They explore, for example, the aesthetic efficiency of a monetary calculation in chromatic and poetic terms, or the rigorous mute monumentality of iconic public buildings; possible analogies are thus established between the visual and the economic system, perhaps to remind us that, even behind the simplest human action, there lies a hidden form. The exhibition The Forms of the Economy or the Economy of the Forms explores the symbolic power of forms in the hope of denaturalizing the distance that the visual language of abstraction establishes with our political, economic and social reality.
