DESCRIPTION

Argos was founded in 1989 for the purpose of stimulating and promoting audiovisual art; at present it is the country’s main source of reference for this type of artistic practice.

***

Argos explores the relationship between art and media and how these influence our perception of the world. In a time when digital information overload, industrial populism and corporate branding set the tone, the arts centre devotes itself to new forms of visibility and publicity. Argos’ territory is comprised of the audiovisual and plastic arts, whereby much attention is given to the interface with other disciplines and to the conscious and alert association with evolutions within the information society.


Central to the workings is the artist, someone who defends critical singularities and confronts us with what is positioned outside of ourselves. Serving as an intermediary between the artist and the public, Argos strives to be a place for meeting, dialogue, and exchange. Its functions include production, conservation and archiving, as well as presentation – exhibitions, film and video showings, lectures and performances; additionally, Argos houses a public media library and provides a service for the international distribution of artists’ films, videos and multimedia installations.
