In the exhibition space is temporary, augmented, designed and loaded. The artworks on display unfold and restructure all possible perceptual codes through their own inspections, observations and approaches. Each of the artists' asks questions the physicality of the space, the content of mediated spaces, clashes between realities and perception, disseminating information and and narrative.

An artist who uses irony and presentation strategies that employ new communication technologies to question the democratic and equalitarian promises of these media and criticise 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.
