Conversation on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition Industry/Matrices, threads and sounds, by Lorenzo Sandoval, artist and curator, and Tono Vizcaíno, archaeologist and heritage manager.
Industry. Matrices, threads and sounds is a hybrid proposal that is situated between the creation of an archive and an artistic project, developed by Lorenzo Sandoval and Tono Vizcaíno. Its objective is to offer a necessarily partial reading of Valencian industrial heritage based on the sound, the intangible and social movements.
During the conversation, they will introduce the proposal, which is developed through the compilation of sounds, processes, images, videos, music, art pieces and discourses linked to factories in their original context of use, but also in their abandonment and their conversion into heritage spaces. It focuses particularly on the proactive uses of industrial heritage driven by citizens. The project is positioned outside the romanticizing image of industrial ruin. Understanding heritage and history as living processes that allow us to generate conceptual tools to understand the past, present and future of the history of labor and its relationship with culture.
