lost in the thrill of it all

Last week‘s visit of the exhibition by the Raqs Media Collective at K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westphalen. Impression 2/2 . Revoltage, 2010 . “Raqs makes language it’s material and medium of play. This may take the form of he wordplays or neologisms they integrate into the titles of their works or weave texts. It features in illuminated installations in the form of brightly illuminated letters arrayed in regular rhythmic patterns. This linguistic play allows them to elicit a variety of readings, to break with fixed terms and concepts, and to subvert linear narratives.”

Last week‘s visit of the exhibition by the Raqs Media Collective (founded in 1992 by Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula and Shuddhabrata Sengupta) at K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westphalen. Impressions 1/2 . “With their exhibition, Raqs open up a new space of possibilities, one that invites visitors to heighten their awareness of the fundamental ambivalence of this world while re-examining habitual methods, narratives, and patterns of thought.” .
