We tend to overlook and at times to dismiss altogether the importance of historical art events in shaping up people’s imaginary.
Guernica was Picasso’s masterpiece representing the horrors and angsts of World War II and leaving a long lasting aesthetic legacy.
Museum of Contemporary Cuts (MoCC) blends contemporary arts and politics (social, financial, environmental, and other crises) to provide opportunities for artists to comment upon the complexity of our contemporary times and the upheavals that characterize them.
The contemporary world offers evermore less opportunities for artists to create artworks that challenge current believes, societal norms, and commercial aesthetics. Museum of Contemporary Cuts (MoCC) challenges the status quo and assists artists in developing projects and practices that explore the relationship between art and social politics not as a form of response to current news cycles or as a phagocytizing, neutering, and neutralizing of what once were challenging aesthetics.
The role of Museum of Contemporary Cuts (MoCC) is not that of institutionalizing diverse and sometimes rebellious aesthetics. It is, instead, that of providing a platform where the ‘controversial’ voices of today will be unhindered in creating the masterpieces of tomorrow.
“No, [art] is not made to decorate apartments. It’s an offensive and defensive weapon against the enemy.” Pablo Picasso on Guernica.
