This is Not a Music Video

December 16 - January 20, 2016

This is Not a Music Video is a screening program presented as part of the exhibition This is Not a Love Song: Video Art and Pop Music Crossovers. The program explores the links between music videos and the recording industry with works by contemporary artists who have appropriated the aesthetics of the music video and have been deconstructing such imagery since the 1980s. This sort of ‘antimusic-video’ defy the audiovisual stereotypes promoted by television channels like MTV to generate devices for reflecting and/or projecting political, social and cultural messages.

Artists: Joseph Beuys, Dara Birnbaum, John Sanborn & Kit Fitzgerald, Pipilotti Rist, Bjørn Melhus, Charley Case, Olaf Breuning, Cheryl Donegan, Ana Laura Aláez, Carles Congost, Marc Bijl, Joan Morey, Jesús Hernández, Hugo Alonso, Charles Atlas, Adel Abidin, César Pesquera, Jorge Galindo & Santiago Sierra

Duration: 01:55’

This program’s screenings are free of admissions with an exhibition ticket. Drop in, no reservations.

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
