Through photography, painting, sculpture, installations and videos, thirteen international artists of the last generation from Europe, the United States and Asia reflect on the precise moment in which images reveal themselves as obvious constructions and manifest illusions. Digital technologies for producing images subject today's visual landscape to constant transformation. In the works by Anna Barriball, Frank Benson and Giuseppe Gabellone, the drawings have a sculpture-like relief, the surfaces mimic spaces and materials, the forms seem poised between two- and threedimensionality, between being an image and being an object.
Even economics and politics seem to evolve within a language which is just as concrete and abstract. For that reason, Roman Ondák, Pratchaya Phinthong e Carey Young reflect on the areas of economic trade and political action: fluctuations in the value of money, the nature of legal contracts, predictions about the future and political rhetoric are seen as "representation", conventions, acts of faith and role-play.
