PSJM is currently showing a video work titled El Ocaso de los Estados Nación (The Dawn of the Nation) at Centro de Holografia y Artes Dados Negros. In this they imagined a kind of a insatiable virus, which is gnawing the flags of the cities New York, Frankfurt, Paris, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong. The symbols of the national states are swallowed up by the harmful parasites, which call themselves the “dictatorship of the markets”.
PSJM aims at criticizing a kind of regime which relentlessly performs a new feudalism in which countries and citizens are defeated by debts. As Jean Ziegler,a favorite critic of PSJM, they question the intercontinental enterprises of the industries, banks, services, and trade. According to Ziegler the new-fashioned feudal systems are “more powerful, cynical, brutal and smarter than the ancients”. The welfare state is fatally attacked by the fist of the markets, while this pretends support. The work of the artists represented in the exhibition “correlaciones” reproduce neither reality nor reflection on it, but details of a reality. They raise up to previously unknown questions about the knowledge and the memory. Nothing remains unchanged, while a standstill could possibly be generated by our perception of reality. In our thinking the world is fragmented into different units, so that we always perceive it as fragmented. This creates a static, lifeless behavior which limits our creativity in everyday life. The fragmentation of reality also causes the reference of information to be lost. There are only fragile boundaries between reality and appearance.
