The video art competition invites participants to generate works based on the theme of “The Absent Image” selected by the Indian collective Raqs Media. Given the explosion of images all around us, pushes creators to consider the countless elements still to be recorded. Raqs Media will choose the pieces to be exhibited, and will judge the winning entry, whose creator will be awarded a one-month residency—between August and December 2012—to work with the Sarai programme (www.sarai.net) at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, (CSDS), a New Delhi research institute. The exhibition, also to be screened online, will encompass four pieces by guest artists Suchismita Ukil & Ishaan Sadhanand (New Delhi), Zheng Bo (Hong Kong), Basel Abbas & Rouane Abou Rahme (Ramallah) and Yota Ioannidou (Athens). Proyecto Juárez features the works of fourteen artists as they reflect on the forms of domination and discrimination, and their interest in exploring the ties between the makeup of masculinity, the exercise of violence, and vertical power. All these themes tie up to the social transformation that the city of Juárez has been undergoing over the last few decades. Where once they had stable and attractive cattle and cotton industries, now they are in the midst of incorporating a new industry along with battle the menace of drug trafficking, plus a mass exodus, and heavy military presence, and poor employment opportunities.
