Exhibition Introduction

“Postcapital . Archive 1989 - 2001” by the artist Daniel García Andújar is a project showing at the Catalan Pavilion of the 53rd Venice Biennale 2009.

The project—conceived, in equal measure, as multimedia installation, platform, open databank, and workshop—is founded on a digital archive comprised of over 250,000 documents (texts, audio files, videos, etc.) from the Internet compiled by the artist over the past ten years.

Postcapital revolves around the far-reaching changes having evolved worldwide in social, political, economic, and cultural realms over the last two decades, their watershed moments emblematized in the 1989 Fall of the Berlin Wall and the attacks on September 11, 2001. Here, Andújar views the developments subsequent to the “Fall of the Wall” not as aspects of postcommunism but rather of postcapitalism. Emerging here is the question as to what extent capitalist societies have changed in absence of their erstwhile counterparts and which new walls have been erected through the global politics following events of 1989 and 2001. The word ‘postcapital’ in English also denotes ‘financial capital’ and ‘capital city’. Thus, this project also echoes with the reformulation of social forces in the process of urbanization in capitalist societies.

Artist Info | Daniel García Andújar
Born in Almoradí,1966. Currently works and lives in Barcelona.

Daniel García Andújar uses irony and presentation strategies that employ new communication technologies to question the democratic and equalitarian promises of these media and criticize the desire for control lying behind their apparent transparency. Based on the confirmation that new information and communication technologies are transforming our everyday life, Daniel G. Andújar created a fiction (Technologies To The People, 1996) designed to make us increase our awareness of the reality around us and of the deception in promises of free choice that are converted, irremissibly, into new forms of control and inequality.

A long-time member of irrational.org (international reference point for art on the web) and founder of Technologies To The People, he is the creator of numerous projects on the Internet such as art-net-dortmund, e-barcelona.org, e-valencia.org, e-seoul.org, e-wac.org, e-sevilla.org, Materiales de artista, etc. He has directed numerous workshops for artists and social collectives in different countries.
