Martí Manen and Emilio Moreno talk about experiences and strategies to propose an emotional relationship with and from contemporary art. Understanding contemporary art as a field in which meaning is not necessarily closed allows an approach to the world based on the emotional. With reference to curatorial and artistic practice, Manen and
Moreno – from different positions – share approaches to the emotional without abandoning criticality.
Martí Manen has been the curator of Momentum10 “The Emotional Exhibition”, a biennial in Norway which demonstrated the desire for an approach to the exhibition based on the complexity of emotions. Emilio Moreno is an artist who investigates the crossroads between emotions and the narrative fact, seeking emotional contact with history, objects and story.
