The main exhibition of Print Screen 2019 puts The Unseen at center stage, in an attempt to peer through its camouflage. From the hidden eyes that watch us from the drone in the skies to the voices that call our name from the deepest parts of the internet. We search for the obscure, the microscopic, the nanometric, the buried, and that which lurks behind the scenes.

The exhibition is divided into three parts:

 

Tubes:

We are used to regarding the internet as a virtual environment, a cloudlike weightless apparatus that isn’t associated with any geographic place. The information distribution processes are hidden. Information flows to us mysteriously - arriving at our screens, as if by magic, only to disappear again at the touch of a button. The works in “Tubes” wish to expose internet technologies and bring them into the center of the room, restore their physicality and emphasize their material and aesthetic forms. They intend to remind us that the choice to keep the information infrastructure unseen is not only practical but political. After all, there are those who profit from the system’s seemingly magical and invisible appearance. This is because the information is actually “somewhere”, but the access to it is restricted and controlled by some obscure, authorized people.

 

She-nvisible:
A few months ago, the internet was abuzz when Apple inc. admitted that it uses Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant, to record its users. The voice of the lovely lady that only wishes to be of service, turned out to be a cover, behind which a commercial company performs acts of espionage against its clients. Ever since communication technology and modern marketing techniques have been put to use, the voice of the imagined woman at the other end of the line was perceived as the caring, sympathetic voice of a motherly figure, and was thus used to build trust, create cooperation, increase satisfaction, and overcome reservation. With the rise of artificial-intelligent technologies watching us, studying our behavior, and updating the system, it’s no wonder that they have been embellished with feminine qualities.
The works in this room examine the abstract, synthesized, imagined, and mediating feminine image, the magical power it holds, and the ways it’s employed and appropriated to deceive, manipulate, and control.     

 

Eye in the Sky

The drone is in the spotlight of this exhibition. This unmanned aerial vehicle has transformed from a weapon and spyware at the service of armies and intelligence organizations to a remote-controlled third eye available to the masses. Not only do drones rewrite the rules of war, but they also challenge geophysical borders as well as the human right to privacy and protection from the unseen. In the realm of photography, they expand the visual scope, transforming photographers into superheroes who can use them to watch from the sky and to infiltrate places too dangerous for human feet. The artists in this room explore the drone as an aesthetic, well-designed object and as the subject of political and social conflicts concerning freedom and human rights in the 21st century
