Where Should Art Go During This Pandemic Situation?
By Abel Cervantes
There are two contemporary events that have changed the world. 9/11 led to an extreme vigilance that made disappear the line between the public and the private. Suddenly, foreign people (the unknown Other) became a danger to society and it was necessary to know their location to stop their “terrorist plans”. Cell phones began to have sophisticated cameras, that not only served to photograph unforgettable moments, but were also used to capture –in flagrante- their own owners. (Batman. The Dark Knight summarizes these concerns in an enlightening way: Lucios Fox – Morgan Freeman – is the tech genius who helps Batman achieve his objectives: adapt a war vehicle to arrest thugs, use a plane to capture a Chinese thief or chase the Joker throughout Gotham City using the citizens’ cell phones as an underwater radar.) Nowadays, cell phones have endless functions. However, each of them work as a detector that records all human activities: from where we are to what we eat, what we wear and what we desire (Facebook and Google listen to even the most intimate conversations, even if cell phones are several meters away). Our life is exposed as it was not thirty years ago.
