Dani Marti selected for ‘ECONOMY’ co-curated by Angela Dimitrakaki and Kirsten Lloyd and staged across Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow and Stills, Scotland’s Centre for Photography.
In the 21st century, does the economy provide the ground zero of our sense of self? And what does this experience of a life dominated by economic relations feel or even look like? Presented at Stills in Edinburgh and CCA in Glasgow two parallel exhibitions make the core of ECONOMY. Accompanied by film screenings, public forums and online debate, the project examines the heightened interest of art today in revealing the economy as an inescapable social truth. The artworks on show experiment with the imaginative documentation of social life to address issues ranging from climate change, labour conditions, sexuality, migration and the crisis of democracy to the quest for alternative futures. Artists include Andrea Fraser, Tanja Ostojic, Hito Steyerl, Ursula Biemann, Andreas Gursky, Tracey Emin, Johan Grimonprez amongst others.
