    About María Blanchard

    Avant-garde and identity

    Seminars and conferences Seminar

    Overshadowed by the orthodox histories of the avant-garde, the figure of María Blanchard has several aspects that have resulted in her being relegated to a secondary, and decidedly minor, position. These aspects include her condition as a woman and her distance from the prevailing cubist grammars. At this seminar Eugenio Carmona, Carmen Bernárdez, María Dolores Jiménez-Blanco, Xon de Ros and María José Salazar present some new frameworks for better understanding the artist and, at the same time, the historical avant-gardes.

    Losing the human form

    Conversations about the 80s in Latin America

    Seminars and conferences Encounter

    One of the primary aims of this seminar is to facilitate testimony and oral discourse as a stimulant and as a counterpoint to exhibition discourse and, at the same time, to produce a debate between the artists and agents that were involved and a new generation of historians and critics that are rewriting Latin American art practices as they overflow toward a context that has more social and political activism, but that is also more subjective, identitary and sexual.

    The event in the origins of Fluxus

    Encounter with Eric Andersen

    Seminars and conferences Encounter

    Eric Andersen (Antwerp, 1940) has been linked to Fluxus from practically the very beginning. In 1962, he had the idea of organising a festival in Copenhagen's Nikolai Church. Before that he was involved in setting up art-poetry networks throughout Europe. His participation in this Festum Fluxorum, as the most public and festive qualities of Fluxus were known, was the beginning of a long collaboration in an array of Fluxus events that continue to this day.

    Reflections on Encounters with the 1930s

    Round table with the team of curators

    Seminars and conferences Conference

    This round table brings together the team of curators behind the exhibition Encounters with the 1930s (Museo Reina Sofía, 3 October 2012 - 7 January 2013), to give the audience the chance to learn about the research process and the dialogue that have arisen from this dynamic rereading of the 1930s, which reveals the links between the temporary exhibition and a broader reinstallation project involving the Museum's Collection, undertaken to mark the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Guernica.

    Seminars and conferences Seminar

    What does the people mean? What is it that shapes a popular movement or the popular will? What are the limits, dangers and virtues of the new critical and emancipatory processes, sometimes misdescribed as populist? What differentiates the masses from the people or from a multitude? In other words, what are the different names of the people?

  • Nacho Criado. Trasvase, 1991. (Detail) Particular Collection
    14 june, 2012 - 6 p.m.
    Seminars and conferences Seminar

    Ever tried? Ever fail? No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. The four-decade career of Nacho Criado (1943-2010) seems to engage in a muted dialogue with this phrase by Samuel Beckett, in which the persistence of error shows scepticism to be a revealing working method.

  • Rosemarie Trockel. Dessert. Sculpture, 2007
    13 june, 2012 - 7:30 p.m.
    Seminars and conferences Conference

    The work of Rosemarie Trockel (Germany, 1952) is a reversal of contemporary art's exhibition techniques. Although presented in series, her objects paradoxically break with cold minimalist or pop production and instead bear the imprint of the artisan techniques with which they are manufactured, tapping into the historic imagery of women's work in a post-industrial world.
