MoMa PS1

MoMA PS1 now screening “Political Advertisement X: 1952–2020 (2020)” at the MOMA Magazine.

 

From 19.01 til 31.01.2021, you can watch the film “Political Advertisement X: 1952–2020 (2020)” by Muntadas and Marshall Reese online, along with Artur Żmijewski’s “Democracies” (2009) and Bani Abidi’s “RESERVED” (2006).

 

Drawn primarily from MoMA’s collection, and looking ahead to the forthcoming exhibition “Signals: The Politics of Video”, the selection of works takes on the newly omnipresent impact of video on politics, on the cusp of world change.

 

Artists have created some of the most prescient and perceptive takes on this media transformation. Here, in this limited screening series, we present an international selection of artists’ experiments that feel uncannily relevant to our relationship with video today.

This presentation brings together still photography and an immersive video installation exploring the work of Egyptian Modernist architect Hassan Fathy. Searching for models that might address the urgent contemporary problems of housing, poverty, and environmental sustainability, Collins reconsiders Fathy’s mid-twentieth-century utopian experiments in sustainable architecture and rural community building at New Gourna and New Baris in Egypt.

 

Her installation underscores the visual and philosophical connections between the ancient Egyptian structures and Fathy’s historically grounded, forward-looking designs, and prompts us to meditate on the past as well as contemplate new solutions for the future.
