Library Shelf Location 17.HARD
Publication Date 2003
Description At a time of widespread obsession with the rise of violence, of unending debate about crime and the threat of terrorism, 'Hardcore' questions radicalness and 'violence. These are concepts that now figure in the work of many contemporary artists who are developing an attitude that is akin to a certain activism. The title 'Hardcore' applies to the way the artists featured in the show are infiltrating reality, occupying in a certain way the field of current events, and sending us back an expression of raw truth that is delivered without the prerequisite mass-media format. It is the virulence of a verbal and visual message that unmasks and castigates political and social initiatives that smack of demagoguery.
