The Strozzina at Palazzo Strozzi is currently hosting VISIO. Moving Images After Post-Internet, an exhibition dedicated to video art by 12 under-35 international artists taking part in the VISIO – European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images, a project promoted by Lo Schermo dell’Arte film festival and curated by Leonardo Bigazzi.
The exhibition offers insight into the practice of a generation of artists who witnessed the rise of the so-called “Post-Internet condition” during the years of their education. This definition was adopted towards the end of the first decade of the 2000s to describe art that could no longer avoid tackling the growing hyper-connectivity of the internet in terms of concept, production and distribution. The meaning of “Post-Internet” has changed as quickly as the technology with which it was associated, becoming obsolete and controversial, and being reduced to the, often derogatory, formal categorization of a vast number of artworks. The digital revolution and the acceleration imposed by new media have deeply changed the language of moving images and their exhibition styles. The show reflects on these transformations and on the influence they had on this generation of artists, on the legacy of the Post-Internet phenomenon and on the possible reasons of its definitive adieu.
This edition of VISIO. Moving Images After Post-Internet, which runs until December 1, features works by Rebecca Jane Arthur, Miguel Azuaga, Patrick Alan Banfield, Enar de Dios Rodríguez, Eva Giolo, Inas Halabi, Polina Kanis, Adam Kaplan, Valentina Knežević, Agnieskza Mastalerz, Jacopo Rinaldi and Igor Simić.
