In the group exhibition Dropouts, artists experiment with materials from their medium. They search for the moment at which images appear: in the meeting of two pixels, in the introduction of a new technology, in a particular way of listening or in exploring a medium. Other artists will show where images disappear: due to an excess of pixels, the democratisation of a technology, a deafening sound or eliminating a feeling.
Dropouts is situated in the tension between politics and aesthetics. It starts with the selection of an aesthetic and ends with a form of politics. These media artists also reflect on the materials of their craft. Each in their own way, they explore the boundaries of representation: the (in)visible, the other, the personal that guarantees maximum involvement.
