As part of the Intervalos programme, Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi’s latest work is screened, with both film-makers also participating at an encounter. Joining film practices based on found footage, documentary and experimental cinema, Pays Barbare is a complex tale about historical memory, fascism and colonialism.
Presented as the culmination of the course on critical practices developed by Observatorio Metropolitano in the Museo, this seminar addresses the recent waves and movements of democracy, from Latin America to the Arab Spring. Over three days the sociologists Asef Bayat and Luis Tapia Mealla will debate the new international constituent situation.
The exhibition endeavours to position the notion of critical pedagogy as a crucial element in collective struggles, and explore the tension between individual and social emancipation through education with examples that are both historical and current.

Hanne Darboven is an artist that has delved into the languages of conceptual art and minimal art, which have opened new formal possibilities for expression in the second half of the century. Her numerical series and series of drawings have filled the rooms of many exhibitions and many museums, but her serialism is very different from the one found in the work of other minimalist artists who have also used numerical progressions, such as Sol LeWitt. In this exhibition we are going to find a set of series related to Darboven's everyday life, at home and at work.
