Antonio Muntadas

Examining the media as an instrument of socialization and normalization, Antonio Muntadas’s internationally recognized videotapes and media installations investigate the contradictory messages projected by print and broadcast media, architecture, and language. Throughout his work, Muntadas re-contextualizes available imagery in order to provoke the viewer into rethinking the meaning of the messages, creating a breach in the uniformly constructed "media flow", a stream of information engineered by advertisers to be consumed whole, unanalyzed by the home audience. In Political Advertisement, (edited with Marshall Reese), Muntadas shows us a land of manipulation—the land of television politics. His Between the Frames focuses on the art world and presents interviews that reveal the interwoven structures delimiting how art communicates, how it is made, bought, and sold.
