Content y Contenido are Ingeborg Kraft Fermin and Lucía Vives as Swedish-Portugese artners in prime. They are based in Amsterdam - and the rest of the world via social media. By embracing these characters, they have been exploring pop-cultural concepts such as celebritization, the poetics of daily life, 12 second-attention span, gender politics, instant gratification, and - most importantly - fun.
“The ubiquity of social media platforms has, of course, made influencers of us all, but it is our hope that the artists — and other similarly critical and skillful types — can be especially critical and rigorous influencers, untethered from the mainstream news cycle and its easy dogmatism. (...) it’s clear that you need to want to play the game more than you want to win it - if you’re going to win at all”- Margo Bergamini (Do Not Research)
During 2022, Content y Contenido have been touring thorugh Europe with their piece The Rise and Fall of Content y Contenido - a mashup/spoken word/stand up comedy/infinite scroll poetry piece about Barcelona (the only city named after an Ed Sheeran song), being so bored you could die, and guitars, guitars, guitars.
