Alejandro Vidal   profile  /  exhibitions  /  selected works

Born in Palma de Mallorca, 1972.
Lives and Works in Barcelona.

Vidal’s work is concerned with issues that address social conflict, activism, self-defence, and violence. His practice involves several mediums such as video, photography, drawing, and installation.
Vidal sees his work as a wicked exercise that examines today’s society’s state of mind. In the last years he has been investigating aesthetic positions prior to the act of violence. From video-manuals of self-defence to 80`s punk, early rave techno or 90’s cult movies. He brings all these influences and concepts together to organize them as an attempt of understanding an historical moment and its implications.
He investigates the social, political and economic implications of contemporary Art taking a critical look at the way in which marketing and politics distort our attitudes to violence and life within our cities.
