Since the second half of the 20th century, we have lived in the shadow of two clouds: the mushroom cloud of the atomic bomb and now the cloud of information networks.
How did the symbol of post-war paranoia become the utopian metaphor of today's interconnected world? Under the clouds confronts the interconnected effects and affections of these two clouds in life and work, in leisure and in love, in images, bodies and minds through the contributions of an intergenerational group of artists.
Texts by Enrico Baj & Sergio Dangelo, Thomas Hirschhorn, Sean Landers, Metahaven, Seth Price, João Ribas, Frances Stark, Hito Steyerl, Stan VanDerBeek João Ribas (ed.)
This catalog was launched during the exhibition "Under the Clouds: From Paranoia To The Digital Sublime" on display at the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art from June 20 to September 20, 2015.
