    Information

    Perplexity takes, as point of departure, the feelings facing the shortcomings of our understanding, and the subsequent thoughts that push us beyond the limits of our judgement and keep us teetering endlessly between doubt and belief.

    The title of the program is in reference to the concept «small reason», used by the Spanish philosopher Javier Muguerza when trying to include situations where the strength of self-critique and of non-prescriptive arguments is required to construct a successful dialogue. We are talking, in other words, about a non-authoritarian «reason» —and, in consequence, a flexible reason, not locked into itself—, one that invites us, in this case, to follow a visual narrative built around five autonomous but complementary chapters.

    The program includes the participation of Jordi Mitjà, Gabriel Pericàs, Julia Montilla, Arrieta/Vázquez and Samuel Labadie. These five artists, even though working from very different perspectives, share a similar attitude: the «perplexity» we confront when facing artistic evidence, the same that forces us to question social structures and conventions.
