Daniel Garcia Andujar’s project Postcapital Archive 1989-2001 functions as a multimedia installation and open databank which is based on a digital archive of over 250,000 documents such as texts, audio files, and videos from the Internet compiled by the artist over the past ten years. “Postcapital” addresses social, political, economic, and cultural worldwide changes over the last two decades in between two important moments as 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall and the attacks on September 11, 2001. With the Postcapital Archive 1989-2001 project, Daniel Garcia Andujar calls attention to “networked archives” based on the interpretation of information.
The project has been exhibited and toured in various geographies and events including Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart in 2008-2009, the Catalan Pavilion at 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009, and Iberia Art Center, Beijing, China, 2009.
