Oliver Ressler: Transnational Capitalism Examined, Border as Method
Oliver Ressler’s installations and videos uncover uncomfortable truths about contemporary society, shifting the boundaries between art and political activism. This double exhibition, curated by Mike Watson, takes place at the same time in two separate locations: The Gallery Apart and Fondazione Pastificio Cerere.
In Transnational Capitalism Examined: Border as Method hosted at The Gallery Apart, the artist addresses the visible signs of global capitalism, found in social revolts, the economic crisis and migration through a selection of different works, from videos to wallpapers.
Transnational Capitalism Examined: Dancing on Systemically Important Graves, which takes place at the Fondazione Pastificio Cerere, focuses instead on videos specifically, and reveals the more documentary aspects of Ressler’s practice throughout the last thirteen years.
