SITE INSIGHT PROJECT
(9-23 may 2006, A+A Gallery, Venice - Italy)

The aim of Site^Insight project is to present a discourse on space 
through a fragmented reflection on a series of specific places and 
situations, with different levels of analysis and different media 
(gardening, assemblage, graphic and radical maps, video-reflection, 
aural devices).
The exhibition will present the works of three artists (Rugo, Zuabi, 
Walker) and an artistic collective (Netzfunk.org) that will precisely 
deal with the constitutive conditions of: the art gallery and its 
‘white cube’ ideology, the auditorium as a place where knowedge appears 
as a performative act of rhetoric articulation, the imagery and 
stereotypes deriving from social-economic and power configurations of 
Europe, the mapping stratification process of Occupied Territories and 
the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Investigating the relationships between actual sites and the imagery of 
social and culturalscapes, Site^Insight will focus on the emergence of 
a process of knowledge defined by the juxtaposition between that which 
is known about that particular site and that which is unknown, or 
better, the unforeseeable that emerges from the stability of things 
known. In other words, the main purpose of this project is to focus 
precisely on the somehow disconnected aspects of these specific spatial 
situations and the ideological apparatus behind the common sense of 
socio-political and cultural commonplaces.
In this perspective, Site^Insight project, avoiding to directly 
understand what a commonplace is, will rather try to investigate what 
is involved in the creation of a speculative comprehension of the 
actuality of certain commonplaces.

Con questi progetti la rete Netzfunk continua a lavorare nel contesto 
dell'arte visuale vista come strumento per esplorare narrative e 
svelare strutture di potere. La lotta economica tra Cina e Veneto, 
l'estremizzazione dell'immaginario occidentale dietro lo spettacolo 
delle torture di Abu Ghraib, lo strapotere dei supermercati nello 
spazio europeo sono i "casi di studio" che vogliamo affrontare in 
questa occasione.

Vi invitiamo caldamente a visitare l'esposizione e speriamo di vedervi 
a Venezia.
