Azkuna Zentroa presents the catalogue of the Bene Bergado exhibition
Azkuna Zentroa - Alhóndiga Bilbao, Centre for Society and Contemporary Culture of Bilbao, publishes Decrecer, the book-catalogue that accompanies the exhibition by the artist Bene Bergado at the Centre. The site-specific exhibition in the Exhibition Hall talks about the need to change the trend of unlimited growth in production and consumption due to the serious consequences it is having on the environment, with a formalisation in the form of a sculptural installation.
The book-catalogue is, in addition to the visual record of the exhibition, an essay on the question of degrowth written by Bene Bergado and Juan Luis Moraza, artist and co-author of the project. This new Azkuna Zentroa publication includes a conversation between the sculptor and Margarita Mediavilla. Her research work focuses on Energy, System Dynamics and integrated assessment models, oriented towards sustainability and energy transition.
Bene Bergado, Margarita Mediavilla and Juan Luis Moraza present the catalogue with a three-way conversation on the need for the deceleration of which this project speaks. "Decrecer is an exhibition that incites activism, where the infinitive/imperative decrecer challenges us through art. Bene Bergado conveys to us, through his sculptures and installations, the need to decelerate in order to adapt to a near future of low energy and inevitable life changes", says Fernando Pérez, director of Azkuna Zentroa.
Azkuna Zentroa - Alhóndiga Bilbao
It is the Centre for Society and Contemporary Culture of Bilbao, with a local and international outlook, and open to dialogue with different communities of audiences.
It is the place to experience culture as a practice, as a process, as an experience, through its programme lines: visual arts, live arts, film and audiovisuals and literature; with support for creation, society and digital cultures as transversal lines. All of them are in dialogue with each other, generating a hybrid, multiple and expanded programme that favours the everyday life of the contemporary, with mediation and education as a way to generate critical knowledge and transform society through art and artists.
