The Power of Transparency consists of 14 one-minute videos made by artists in isolation in China, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Now that the whole world is locked down at home, we are united in isolation. Although restrained, there is no limitation to our imagination. Close your eyes and let what is opaque become transparent. Transparency is the perfect camouflage. If there is nothing to hide, why fear it? Can we practise transparency to transfer and filter overwhelming information? Can we become transparent to reflect our emotions in an imbalance of power?
