    Luc Tuymans and Andrzej Wajda

    Two Readings of Andrzej Wróblewski

    Cinema and video Screenings Seminars and Lectures Seminar

    The conversation between the painter Luc Tuymans and the curator Ulrich Loock, and the film Wróblewski According to Wajda, premiered by the film-maker Andrzej Wajda in the Museo Reina Sofía, represent two reflections on the painting of Andrezej Wróblewski, who still challenges the interpretative frameworks of 20th-century art history today. A realist and at the same time abstract, an individualist whilst also an advocate of collective artistic practice, experimental yet socially committed, Wróblewski considers a series of ambivalences through his work that call into question key aspects of both his own epoch and the present.

    New Babylons

    Constant and the Right to the City

    Seminars and Lectures Seminar

    New Babylon (1956–1974) is a networked city project conceived by the Dutch artist and architect Constant Nieuwenhuys for the “total fulfilment of life”, an approach to urbanism based on the freedom of the individual through the power of play and creativity. This activity, which marks the end of the retrospective in the Museo devoted to Constant, examines this total artwork’s place in the utopian urbanism that followed World War Two through a lecture by Anthony Vidler and a round-table discussion featuring participation from José Miguel Prada Poole, Izaskun Chinchilla, José Pérez de Lama and Ethel Baraona.

    Cultural War, Artistic Dissent, Networks and Contact Zones during the Iron Curtain Period

    Seminars and Lectures Seminar

    The international conference Cold Atlantic will examine the artistic, cultural and aesthetic exchanges produced between the USA, Europe, Africa and Latin America during the Cold War. The aim is to highlight the axes of alignment and artistic exchange between the geopolitically minor actors that were trapped inside the huge theatrical strategy from this period.
