Ironic strategies are a central means of expression in contemporary Media Art. Irony is incorporated into artistic work in a subtle/humorous, anarchistic/satirical or radical/mocking manner. By breaking with expectations, shifting contexts or undermining established thought patterns, artists question supposedly unshakeable values and develop counter strategies to doctrinaire concepts of reality. In its current exhibition, EMAF showcases outstanding positions that endeavour to explore cultural issues and interfere rebelliously in socio-political processes using irony, satire and humour.
Open from 10am to 10pm, guided tours at 3pm and 7pm.
