Item description for Antoni Muntadas: On Translation by Antoni Muntadas...

From one language to another, one voice through a telephone through an ear into an email through a fax machine via a satellite hookup, a third language, a photograph and four hybrid cultures ... you know what I mean. Problems of translation have long fascinated Antoni Muntadas. In a 1995 manifesto the artist proclaimed his concern with the way in which the transmission of information through different systems and its subsequent translation can transform, fragment, deform and even obscure or censor any original meaning. That concern has fed the ongoing On Translation series through projects which vary greatly in terms of their formalization, projects which pose questions about such themes as the identity of artistic practice, the idea of its social value, and the possibilities of representation, curatorial interpretation, transcription and conservation of heritage.
