Guilty Landscapes

Dries Verhoeven

Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya 16/07 - 25/07

A video installation that invites us to contemplate and reflect on images of our global world.

The continual availability of news on our laptops, televisions and smartphones makes us perpetual witnesses to complex situations on the other side of the world. We can feel unease every day through the confrontation with presumed poverty and desperation. The news camera is not neutral; intentionally or unintentionally, those who are filmed are framed as victims. Before they know it, the social conscious viewer is dragged into a vortex of guilt and shame.

With the large scale video installation Guilty Landscapes Dries Verhoeven brings the reality of uncomfortable news images dangerously close. He poses the question of whether a personal connection is possible.

Access to Guilty Landscapes is included in the ticket for the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya.

Capacity is limited. Admission should be booked in advance.
