You are warmly invited to attend the art project’s “Aesthetics vs. Information Vol. 2” exhibition at KCCC. Organized by Klaipeda culture communication center, first time it was presented at the 4th Contemporary Moscow art biennial, special projects part. Project’s idea presented at regional level reflects a polemical approach to the concept of the Moscow biennial „Rewriting worlds“ , which according to its curator Peter Weibel, ' is presented in the language of modern technologies understood by people of different races, countries, sexes or confessions.
“Aesthetics vs. Information” draws spectator’s attention to the increasingly growing public reliance on the information distorting the traditional aesthetic categories. This project, thus, offers to interpret the concept of “fight between aesthetics and information” as art’s response and solution to the problem. The aesthetics and the information in this case are only counterpart equivalents of perception and art evaluation criteria. The art project focuses on various dimensions of remaking, “rewriting” of the ideas using aesthetical and informative media chosen by the artists. Moreover, the project conceptualizes the transformation from one form of expression into another by using installations, objects and video works, performances, paintings, photography etc. The answers to the following questions could be provided by them: “Only the information?”, “Only the aesthetics?”, or “constant remaking of the remake’s remake?”
Project “Aesthetics vs. Information Vol. 2” is the second part of the international project. The first part of the project, curated by Constantin Bokhorov, was presented at Klaipeda Culture Communication Centre, Lithuania, in 2010.
