The contradictions of the globalized world between limits and disintegration.


Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla are producing the project Blackout at MAXXI, a body of recent works focussing on the issue of energy. Working in the Gallery 5 space, the duo are bringing the exhibition layout and the works themselves into close contact, creating almost a “performative” setting.

Through the story of a paradoxical situation, that of Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States, the artists analyse diverse critical issues and contradictions associated with energy in regard to its relationship with power, research, environmentalism and the global political situation, confirming their vocation for reflection on events and circumstances bound up with current socio-political affairs.
Thanks to a critical and visionary approach, the works of Allora & Calzadilla reinterpret the present, offering differing points of view and proposing a new vision of reality.
