Vigiar e Punir

HumansSince1982_Surveillance+chandelierEntre o terror de sermos vigiados e o de não o sermos qual escolhemos?
Hoje crescemos com baby monitors, para assegurarmos que tudo está bem, todo o tempo.
Prescrutamos as vidas alheias em posts, em revistas, na televisão ou em webcams.
Tiramos partido mas fazemo-nos de vítimas.
Sabemos que o Big Brother está lá e entramos no jogo da ficção.
E é com essa ironia que Per Emanuelsson e Bastian Bischoff, que formam o Humans Since 1982, trazem para dentro de casa as câmaras de vigilância, que nos apavoram mas também nos sossegam.
Objectos de arte para nos lembrarmos que também dentro de portas há quem nos queira Vigiar e Punir.

Discipline and Punish
Among the terror of being watched and not being which one we choose?
Today we grow up with baby monitors to insure that everything is fine, all the time.
We peer into the lives of others in posts, in magazines, on television or by webcams.
We take advantage but make ourselves victims.
We know that the “Big Brother” is there and we enter the fictional game.
And it is with this irony that Per Emanuelsson and Bastian Bischoff, who form the studio Humans Since 1982, bring into the house surveillance cameras, which terrify but also calm us down.
Works of art to remind us that within doors there are also those who want to “Discipline and Punish” us.
