The eyephoneography rationale

[Ir a la versión española]

The document below contains the rationale of eyephoneography. Printed on a A2 poster, it introduced the exhibition to the audience.

We are using the past tense, because the eyephoneography #1 show has now been suspended. It was supposed to last until October 1st, but the 48 exhibited images that had attracted so much interest in the past days were torn down by some people of the HUB-Madrid. It was a raptus of inexplicable madness that we are still digesting and thinking how to deal with.

We are considering to reopen the exhibit at another venue in Madrid, but the timing and the status of the images makes it almost impossible. If we do find a place, we are thinking about showing the wounded images upside down as a way of making a strong statement against people with no respect whatsoever for the art, the sensitivity of artists and the effort and resources invested in making this event possible.

We will follow up with several posts to share with you the unfolding of this situation, what we recorded during the setting up and the opening on Friday, September 17th, and the photo-walk on Saturday, September 18th. Some snapshots of the opening are already available in an album on our Facebook page (see below).

We also wanted to take a chance to thank all the people who have been supporting us these past few days. Please keep doing so even from a distance by sharing this post through your social-networking channels.

Thanks for being there!
