Art has always been the site of struggle: its forms obscure, its freedoms pure fiction. And the ­territory is currently being ­resurveyed. While identities blur, the terrain is being ­fractured. Old and new forces are intervening, speculating for various interests, claiming their share in the visible and invisible-the accursed share. What some ignore, others must delete. What mustn't be shown can be read in a deeper darkness under a stronger light.

Blinded, baited, ensnared in finely woven nets, our eyes are like those of tamed animals, first wild, then sore, often dulled: overstimulated, tired, and yet very desirable beasts. But who trains them? Cyborgs? Bots? Avatars? As if there were identities galore, and just behind, uploaded, were a world. For here there is no place that does not see you.

Andrea Éva Gyori traumatizes apples and ­lemons. Alexander García Düttmann addresses the ­moralism of form. Beyond the ­pleasure ­principle, Wong Ping's true stories are a provo­cation. Ashley Hans Scheirl stages her scene's ob_sceneries. Lars von Trier seeks the ­Kaspar Hauser of cinema. Uma Thurman's face becomes vulnerable. Elena Dorfman beholds the origin of the world in Uncanny Valley.
