Momentum 9: Alienation
June 17 – October 11, 2017
The ninth edition of the Momentum Biennial takes the notion of alienation as its starting point. By alienation the curators refer to a contemporary world where alien processes and entities are becoming an integrated part of our lives through technological, ecological and social transformations. Momentum 9 addresses this situation and insists on searching for new tools for greater understanding of human condition through cross-pollination of methods, categories and disciplines.
Opening: June 17th, 2pm
Press Preview: June 15th-16th
