419, or 'THE SPANISH PRISONER' , exhibit opens in Barcelona January 18, 2008

The exhibition project on the Nigerian e-mail scam known as the 419, with a documentary section by curator Jeffrey Swartz and a video installation by Catalan artist Pep Dardanyà, will open at the Centre d'Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona, on January 18, 2008. The exhibition runs to March 23.

One part of the exhibition space is dedicated to a documentary portrait of the 419 advanced fee fraud, featuring books, CDs, objects, document portfolios and reproductions of documents and images, as well as scambaiter merchandising and a computer where links might be explored. This portrait includes an analysis of the internet culture that facilitates the success of 419, its legal ramifications, the world of anti-scam activism and scam-baiting, as well as a view into present day Nigeria and the cultural dynamics of Lagos where the scam originated.

Pep Dardanyà contributes the video installation "Correlation 1.1", which astutely points up the contradictions and ambivalences of culture contact between post-colonial Nigeria and the First World.

A full overview of the documentation to be exhibited and internet links related to the show have been posted here. A more complete press release from the previous venue in Vic is available here .

A video of the exhibit in Girona can be viewed on YouTube.
