THE ANIMATED GIF SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM

What/who inspired the work?
My inspiration for "The Animated GIF From Davis Museum" was the works of some Net artists friends of mine on Facebook, especially Miyö Van Stenis.

What do you hope its viewers will feel/think?
"The Animated GIF From Davis Museum" is one of the 21 existing sections in the "Davis Museum, The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona". The section consists of a collection of GIF animations made since 2016 by Davis Lisboa. The digital documents deal with the existing relations between the cultural politics and institutional critique, the conversion of the "readymade" as a cultural institution, the museum as a generator of social changes, art historical precedents and the conceptual relations of the museum as a symbolic object. "The Animated GIF" has subsections titled "Comics", "Currencies", "Exhibitions Posters", "Google Maps", "Library", "Memes", "Offline Exhibitions", "Online Exhibitions", "Paintings", "Poetries", "Precedents", "Quotes", "Referendum", "Screenshots", "Videoexhibitions", "Web", "WhatApps" and "Stamps".

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
One of the basic characteristics of the Davis Museum is its existence as a expanded digital institution on the World Wide Web, for this reason, I chose create this series of GIF animations for it. They are cheap, easy to do, fast to share and visually powerful. All subject of this section comes from another section from Davis Museum and they are reinterpretation of them.
