CULTURE HOLDING LIVE
Field of Knowldege
Isidro López- Aparicio
In this activity we have done an aesthetic, relational and critical installation made with disused objects.
To pile up all the objects brought to the classroom, gives the opportunity to talk about the bonds and disregards we have to the objects and between them.
The dialogue between these objects generates a multiple layered reading of the installation itself, which meaning is altered when it's installed and talks about consuming habits, value scale, assigned value to the object on a personal and social level and the capacity these objets have to define us.
So, what kind of value do every-day objects have?
Are the bonds and/or disregards to the objects natural or imposed?
-To explore the personal, social and political limits of consumption.
-To create a critical attitude towards consumer habits.
-To think in groups about the consequences and reasons of the super-production of goods.
-To make patterns of consumptions visible through our own objects.
