Waarschuwing: Kijken verlangt engagement [Warning: Perception requires involvement]

Antoni Muntadas


Print, variable.
Materials: Sticker

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp.

M HKA participated in the ongoing project On Translation: Warning, and put together a small commitee to talk about the best Flemish translation of the sentence "Warning: Perception requires involvement". We decided on "Waarschuwing: Kijken verlangt engagement" and agreed with Antoni Muntadas to spread a sticker version during the exhibition "Antoni - Muntadas - Alles is politiek". On Translation is an ensemble of projects which despite their diversity of data, geographical locations and subject matter, all take as starting point an interest to examine how information is filtered and interpreted through a separate event, site or system as, for example, in the case of a museum or an interview but likewise via the leitmotif of applause or the banking board room. A long-term component project On Translation: Warning, is a collection of architectural interventions and prints with the slogan Warning: perception requires involvement. A catchphrase meant to caution us vis-à-vis the invisible mechanisms that lurk behind media production and consumption, politics, advertising or other incursions into our daily lives, while also calling for our own personal participation and engagement, something the artist himself sees as a main priority.
