Power without images and images without power

8 June - 19:00h MACBA Auditorium Free access until full capacity is reached

“Information is power” was repeated during the 20th century in clear conception of information as a well scarce and precious with which you could control the other, influence him, master him. A control and domination that it has produced very often through images.

But is it still the case in the unlimited information acces age? Is the information still the power or is it precisely the misinformation? Follow currently the power wanting to dominate the images or is precisely dedicated to dodging them? So they are really the global leaders and politicians like Donald Trump, Queen Elizabeth II, Fidel Castro, Putin or the Pope the images of power or on the contrary are the “animators” of a global spectacle scripted by those who really have the power without having an image? In this colloquium with directors of the three works showed previously we will reflect on these concepts from the audiovisual look presented by his works.

Sofia Cabanes, co-director of “9 días sin Fidel”
Fèlix Pérez-Hita, co-director of “Adam Curtis: sin espejo”
Andrés Hispano, co-director of “Adam Curtis: sin espejo”
