“... art can change society, perhaps not permanently, but towards a new and subsequent utopia. Art is a space where not only value notions are discussed, but where provisional social models may be implemented to be seen, analyzed and, in the best of cases, copied by other disciplines and bodies in society, which will be the ones to negotiate their permanence and executive status.”
(Tania Bruguera)

MAMbo is pleased to present, as part of its schedule of exhibitions for this year, the TIME CODE project, curated by Fabiola Naldi and Alessandra Pioselli.
TIME CODE intends to explore, through the determination of categories of decodification and mise en scène, one of the elements most strictly connected to the medium of video: temporality.
TIME CODE will analyze the procedures and devices chosen by artists to organize different temporal structures and, in an anthropological perspective, the manner in which these are perceived and interpreted by the spectator. The project will be carried out in a series of eight events featuring the presentation of sixteen videos of Italian and international artists, chosen and exhibited according to four categories: Representation, Documentation, Presentation and Quotation.
In each event of the series, the works of the artists will be displayed in different spaces of the museum to create dialogue with the complex architectural structure of the new Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna.

Each session consists of:

  • A public conference with the artists and curators, based on the featured content of TIME CODE (6:30pm)
  • The presentation of two videos (which will be on display until the following installment)
  • The videos presented will be interpreted through the lenses of the four categories cited above, analyzing the presence (or absence) of: hypertext, paraphrase, metaphor, iconography, and metalinguistics.
  • The series will also examine the adoption of procedures of manipulating visual and tonal elements in the post production phase including: sampling, re-mixing, use of feed back and looping as forms of disturbing repetition.
