Son[i]a #191 Eugeni Bonet
Eugeni Bonet (Barcelona, 1954) has loomed large for several generations of artists and theorists interested in film, video and digital media. Since the early seventies, Bonet has been exploring the potentialities of image-movement, in an exercise of transversal writing that connects us to other possible types of film beyond film.
His experimental artistic practice includes genuine audiovisual tests such as filmesculturas, multiprojections, and works on demontage and found footage, concepts that Bonet has also developed at the theoretical level. His work as curator and writer focuses on ideas such as audiovisual appropriation, the expanded image, the properties of video and television formats, and on the work of artists like Michael Snow, Juan Downey and José Val del Omar.
To coincide with the exhibition The Listening Eye. Eugeni Bonet: Screens, Projects and Writings, SON[I]A talks to Eugeni Bonet and to the curator of the show Valentín Roma. They both talk about the lines of research that the project has developed around.
