Dislocations: Questions of War, Place, Trauma and Context in the Transmediations of Art on Public Giant Screens


  • Lanfranco Aceti


The habit of searching within a word for multiple meanings, exploring its multiple facets and etymology is an hermeneutic process that I have inherited from Professor Pino Paioni at the International Center for Semiotics and Linguistics at the University of Urbino.

It is with this semiotic and linguistic approach that I had been researching the possible implications for the word dislocation to develop the underpinning concepts of the exhibition program by the same title on the Media Façade of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb (MSU) in collaboration with Kasa Gallery and part of the 12th Istanbul Biennial’s Official Parallel Program and of ISEA2011 Istanbul.
