Artist Talk by Julián Barón

Thu 22 February 2018  // 19:00 – 20:30 GMT

at Dark Studio, Arnolfini. 16 Narrow Quay, Bristol, BS1 4QA


IC-Visual Lab presents a new programme of talks and workshops entitled Activating Archives.

The first international speaker invited is Julian Barón, one of the most active and committed figures of the new Spanish photographic scene. In this talk, Julian will share the ideas behind his most recent projects, produced in Spain since 2011: C.E.N.S.U.R.ATauromaquia, and Los últimos días vistos del rey and Memorial.

Deeply concerned by the political, economic, and social issues of a country in unprecedented crisis, he uses outrageously manipulated and twisted images in a dialectic of the representation of power, institutions, and the political class. He has an ongoing interest in experiemental publications as well as the possibilities between the physical and the digital.

Barón will also give an introduction to the workshop The Cage: Visualising the Housing Crisis that takes place in Bristol over three days with a final intervention in the public space and a experimental publication.
