Art Madrid'24 – A scream comes across the sky, exhibition in La Laboral, Gijon

Drones, massive surveillance and invisible wars ... With these ingredients it cooks "A screaming comes across the sky" that focuses on the work of contemporary artists whose work criticise military technology, international data networks and the new cold war that sneaks into the global system that invisibly is responsible for the disappearance of hundreds of civilians every year. 

 

Drones has a major role in the exhibition, the unmanned military artifacts which have achieved great heights of popularity among rescue teams, photographers, mass surveillance, but as has noted Juha Van't Zelfde, exhibition curator and artistic director of Lighthouse (Brighton) "have become powerful weapons of war." "Flying over towns and cities with its cargo of cameras and weapons drones have become synonymous with terror, with overwhelming existential fear, like a memory of the future and that warns us of impending danger," explained Commissioner. 

A screaming... will take place at La Laboral Gijon Art Center  from October 10. It will gather 15 artists from around the world, including Matthew Battles & Ricardo Dominguez, James Bridle, Bureau of Inverse Technology, Harun Farocki, Omer Fast, Laurent Grasso, Mariele Neudecker, Angel Nevarez & Alex Rivera, Trevor Paglen, Marko Peljhan, Liam Young. The exhibition will run until March 2015 and it will be developed under an ephemeral architecture by Miroslav Rajic. 
La Laboral also offers a series of parallel activities associated with the content of the exhibition, as explained to the media, "focuses on the impact caused by armed conflicts in which drones are used and results in a clear criticism how technology and military networks and hide us away from the political and social reality of armed conflict today. "
