08.11.2019 – 15.03.2020
Discover the work of the duo of artists Eva and Franco Mattes at the exhibition “Eva & Franco Mattes: What Has Been Seen”, taking place at the Phi Foundation for Contemporary Art from November 8th, 2019 to March 15th, 2020.
With humour and irreverence, Eva and Franco Mattes have dissected, tested, and redefined the boundaries of the Internet. Since the mid-1990s, the artistic duo has also probed and engaged with the way contemporary societies have shaped the Internet and, conversely, how the Internet has shaped us (people, social relations, and societies). The work of Eva & Franco Mattes is a not-so-pretty mirror image of two generations: those who knew a world before the Internet and digital natives. In that sense, their work engages actively with Internet content, practices such as life sharing, and our feelings and reactions as we watch and share in our online world.
