Creative Terror is a set of artistic practices that arise in times of crisis, whether existential, economic or from the 30s, that doesn’t matter.
Techniques characteristic of creative image professionals like photography, design, video or illustration in all their varieties are used to ironize situations around the role of artist, work-production or social prestige.
Terror hides under mechanisms in which we are involved, documents that limit us, discourses that isolate us and lifestyles that make us one more product of the consumer society.
“In our days, so few philosophers, artists or writers can be found: in these roles of representation there is not much more than a few Bloom producers of cultural goods, and who take the referential poses that favor their position (…) It’s prohibited to us, under the present regime of things, to identify ourselves in a lasting way with any particular content, only with the movement of tearing each one of them. ” Tiqqun.
