The Dark Side of the Party.
Curator: Iván López Munuera.
Proyecto Arte y Voces para SOS4.8 2015.
Parties have a dark side. In the spaces, songs, declarations, associated media and subject constructions that are established in the territories of the festive not all is celebration. Parties can segregate, exlude, passively of actively define those subjects involved in them, and hold representations of power and politics that are effective although seldom entirely visible. It’s a dark side that manifests itself through material devices such as velvet ropes at the entrance of discos or nightclubs; technology or the lack of it that leads to missing out on calls through social media; and finantial, through the monetary disparities that allow (or not) to take part; symbolic, through the clothes and looks that are invoked or that can be a reason for rejection; urban, because of the places where they happen and the territorial pacts they imply; or social, as in the exclusions ingrained in them even if these are not distinctly expressed.
The Dark Side of the Party is conceived as a project that intends to debate, discuss and confront these exclusions, this dark side of the party, through an array of coordinated actions that go from roundtables to performances, conferences and videos or installations, in a privileged scenario to test it all: the SOS 4.8 2015 Festival.
