FEED THE CHIMERA
WEDNESDAY 30 OCTOBER – 27 NOVEMBER 2019
18:30 – 20:30
Enrolment free, from 19 September HERE.
In recent years the Universidad Popular explored illusionism and magic. With this idea in mind, we are now proposing to follow up our research and take it to the limit, to the fabulous. This year we will work with the idea of the chimera, understood as improbable illusion and also as an impossible being made from different bodies. We have conjured up bodies that multiply, that question the idea of the human and the artist, mixing science and art, like the Quimera Rosa collective; or those that safeguard the chimerical fire, like Fermín Jiménez Landa. We invite anyone interested in thinking about these unexplored ideas and in feeding the monster.
CA2M organises educational activities on contemporary art and thinking that can be framed within the tradition of community colleges. The courses it offers address some of the key issues for a proper understanding and interpretation of art today. These activities can be divided into two parts: the first consists of the presentation of a theme by a guest speaker and the second part involves a debate open to the audience. But this structure can also change to adapt to more experimental formats depending on the guest at each session.
Anyone interested in art today.
No prior knowledge necessary.
