"The spectacle is not a collective of images, it is a social relation between people that is mediated by images" The Society of the Spectacle - Guy Debord

In the frame of the Eye on Palestine festival the Pianofabriek has the honor to invite Reem Shilleh and Lara Khaldi, two young Palestinian curators, to rethink their concept of the 'The Lonely Crowd' according to the urban context of Brussels. The Lonely Crowd was the theme for the 2013 /si:n/ festival, a festival for video art and performance in Ramallah, Jenin and Jerusalem. The exposition will open with the screening of the film 'Society of the Spectacle', by the situationist Guy Debord based on his book of the same name. The exposition will be introduced by Reem Shilleh and Lara Khaldi, the curators of The Lonely Crowd.

he Lonely Crowd questions the failure of the moving image in correspondence with its makers and spectators, and also in correspondence with its internal structure and function. Life has receded in favour of the spectacle; moving images are generated from other existing images that should supposedly unify us as spectators. Perhaps we have lost our ability to relate; how do we reclaim this relation to each other? We are communicating through those moving images, but they have failed/betrayed this promise of dialogue and rather produce isolation, loneliness and alienation.

Do we dare reclaim our individuality that has been contained by the image, as a mediator for the regeneration of pseudo-unity, as that would mean hijacking the image as the capital of the spectacle in order to be able to produce a collective, a unity?

Can The Lonely Crowd appropriate the spectacle, turn the spectacle against itself?
