Contemporary lives have become journeys in a chaotic universe, transforming it into a territory which may be travelled both in time and space, as Nicolas Bourriaud states in the Altermodern Manifesto. In such a changing terrain, individuals’ daily practices, as well as their sense of self, rely on constant translation and mediation between identities and cultures, an ongoing process of negotiation of cultural meanings. The artists invited to take part in this exhibition consider this centerless chronotope of global negotiation and interchange between agents from different cultures as an emerging network of new pathways of translation between multiple formats of expression and communication. Through a variety of approaches to video, they explore the dynamic interplay between the global and the local on a concrete, material level.
