ART & FOOTBALL
This page is part of the Ekkono training in values through football initiative. The objective is to contribute to the interpretation of contemporary problems through the link between Football and Art, offering different possibilities of reading and understanding this sport in the context of today’s society.
We will be uploading and sharing art works linked to football made by artists, with the aim of creating a «collection» of references with which to promote thinking and reflecting on this sporting practice, from different disciplines: illustration, video, sculpture, painting, etc.
ARTIST: Ann Veronica Janssens (Video Artist and Sculptor. 1956 – , Belgium)
TITLE: Berlin – Barcelone
It is a video projection where the artist uses the images of the match that took place between Hertha Berlin and F.C. Barcelona in the 1999 Champions League, a match that should not have been played because visibility was zero due to fog, but was held in the interest of UEFA.
As if it was a ghostly scene, the players enter and leave the fog in a confusion shared with the spectators. A match that was played, but never seen.
