Curated by Joaquin Badajoz, Raw/War is a visual essay on the crudeness of war —the raw— as a result of ideological conflicts in contrast with the superficial asepsis of the official Ideologies —the cooked narratives—. Following a minimalist aesthetic approach, Arnaldo Simon delivers a strong visual message about the dichotomy and symmetry of Ideology and Violence on the stele of Lévi-Strauss’s seminal anthropological essay The Raw and the Cooked (Le Cru et le cuit, 1964). The series included in this major exhibition point to the binary opposition of categories that disguise, camouflage and mirror themselves —the word Raw contains in itself the origins of the War when reads backward—.
