Curated by Tomás Abreu

At the turn of the third millennium, the social and economic developments that began in the late twentieth century triggered a series of conditions that have played a central role in questioning the positivity heralded by globalisation and the massification of tecnologies. After the Bang proposes a reflection about the paradoxes of their consequences, while challenging concepts of manipulation of time, in its conceptual, perceptive and material dimensions.Using photography and expanded cinema, while exploring the relationship between documentary and fiction, the pieces show bodies and spaces, present in the hiperreal or the physical space, placed outside temporal limits and under a desacelerated rhythm. In a generation characterised by the growth of digital culture, in which artists and other cultural agents use rapid circulation of photographic fragments to produce and reproduce their content, it is necessary to think about the ontological and relational nature of the image. The particularities that emerge from this generational influence are directly transposed into works of art, which assume great importance when thinking about the past.
