Movement Fictions will take place in a decommissioned funicular station in Barranco, Lima which has been closed to the public since 1976.
To revive this dormant space, Movement Fictions asks how to engage with the cultural memory held in this historical site of transit through the hyperactive, accelerated and networked knowledge systems of today.
With the help of a selection of local and international artists Movement Fictions will re-activate the defunct station through a layering of aesthetic, social and historical contexts, looking at the ways in which movement technologies effect our perception—not only of space and time—but also of knowledge production, access and circulation.
Oct 15 – Inauguration
Artists: Andrea Canepa, Trevor Paglen, Michael Candy, Florian Hecker, Danny Wild, Kiah Reading

Ways of Something (Chapter 1)
Ways of Something is a contemporary remake of John Berger’s BBC documentary, “Ways of Seeing” (1972). Compiled by Lorna Mills, the first episode consists of one-minute videos by 30 web-based artists who commonly work with 3D rendering, gifs, film remix, webcam performances, and websites to describe the cacophonous conditions of artmaking after the internet.
Performances by Gabriel Acevedo & Anaze Izquierdo
