Landscapes and Mirages-Suwon Lee

As part of the programming for the 2012 Seminario Fundación Cisneros, The Betrayal of the Contemporary: Activations, suspensions and projections of the contemporary in art, the artist Suwon Lee presented a Pecha Kucha around the theme of "Landscapes and mirages".

The presenters for this particular theme were asked to address the following questions, using their work, research, and impressions of the cultural field to answer them critically: Is there a difference between a natural and a social landscape? How does landscape position but also refer, how does it accept and at the same time question the gaze in our time? If power and intimacy grant privileged access to information, what are the responsibilities of the gaze?
