Barrikadenwetter. Image Acts of Insurrection explores the construction, concept and iconography of the barricade, from its beginning in the late Renaissance to present times, crossing its historical connections with the roots of the 20th century avant-garde.
The exhibition lays out an imagery of the modern barricade based on a taxonomic methodology, which compares three different ways of looking at the Paris revolt of May 1968: the perspective of the rioters, the spectacular act of the press and surveillance on the part of the state, which despite presenting the same subject, pursue their observations from different viewpoints and for different purposes.
