Four years after its first exhibition, Lo schermo dell’arte returns to Palazzo Strozzi with VISIO. Moving Images After Post-Internet. The exhibition presents the works of the twelve artists selected for the 8th edition of VISIO offering an insight into the practice of a generation of artists who, during the years of their education, witnessed the rise of the so-called “Post-Internet condition”. This definition has been adopted since the end of the first decade of 2000 in order to describe art that could no longer avoid to confront the growing hyper-connectivity of the internet, both in conceptual and in production and distribution terms. However, the meaning of the term “Post-Internet” has changed as quickly as the technology it was associated with, becoming obsolete and controversial and being mostly reduced to the often derogatory formal categorisation of a vast number of artworks. During the same years the digital revolution and the acceleration imposed by new media have deeply changed the language of moving images and their exhibition models. The show therefore reflects on these transformations and on the influence they had on this generation of artists, on the legacy of the Post-Internet phenomenon and on the possible reasons of its definitive overcoming.

The exhibition is promoted and organized by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and Lo schermo dell’arte Film Festival.

Artists: Rebecca Jane Arthur (Great Britain, Belgium); Miguel Azuaga (Spain, Germany); Patrick Alan Banfield (Great Britain, Germany); Enar de Dios Rodríguez (Spain, Austria); Eva Giolo (Belgium); Inas Halabi (Palestine, Netherlands); Polina Kanis (Russia, Netherlands); Adam Kaplan (Israel, Germany); Valentina Knežević (Croatia, Germany); Agnieszka Mastalerz (Poland, Germany); Jacopo Rinaldi (Italy); Igor Simić (Serbia).
