artengo2000

In a Barcelona enmeshed in the globalised collaborative economy, a shared flat is sponsored by a Russian and American multinational. In exchange for a paltry few material goods, the occupants display the brand in the privacy of their home on a collection of ordinary clothing.
The shared flat, both an expression of modern-day neoliberalism and a relic of Stalinist totalitarianism (the kommunalka), is a contract as flexible as it is constrictive.

artengo2000 presents a succession of genre movie scenes lubricated with microsociology and the psychoanalisis that imagines the meanderings of the protagonists through the dispositifs of sharing and their networks of friends connected by web platforms born in Silicon Valley.

If you have nothing better to do

If you have nothing better to do is made of 3 unconnected fragments recorder around the sunday market and the industrial textile state in Tordera. To fill and to vacate people from the factory, those 30 minuts of assembling and dismantling the stand of the coats, the excess of mandarins in the market and the lack of meaning of the shooting itself, are maybe the underlying ideas of the process and the final result of the project.

Installation composed by three videos for the grant Ciudad Subterranéa showed at Contemporary Cultural Center of Barcelona in 2016.
