Starting on Friday with a commissionated programming by the audiovisual platform of contemporary art , JULIO, which has its roots in cinema, music and theory. JULIO is on line on This programme is composed by a series of works that turn around the future, creating some strength between fiction and reality.

On Saturday, all programmes will take a look at the past, toward images from memory, (also builders of fictions) and toward images of forgetfulness. As Jerôme Laffont states in Algèrie, images d’un combat- Images of Fight- “Time grants images with a estrange destiny. Once their immediate usage is gone, they immediately become memories. Known memories or forgotten memories in the archives. Then, one day, they are brought back to light, dusted from the place they were latent and reappear so we can remember” Throughout the day, we will screen a set of productions which talk about hidden images from our eyes and expressly forgotten and destroyed, but latent whether in archives or in the memory. The film To Shoot an Elephant will round up the programming with the participation of Alberto Arce who will engage a dialogue with Miguel Salvatierra at the end of the screening.

We will close the week with a thematic programming curated by Fionn Meade, art conservator from the Sculpture Center of Nueva York, who has personally selected creation which brings up again a particular glace towards the images from the memory.
Two concerts round the music part of the programming, concerts which also explore  archives searching for sounds from the past: The Dead Rat Orchestra a Spanish traditional songs recovered by Lorca and interpreted by Josephine Foster and the Victor Herrero Band, all this accompanied with snacks, soft drinks and a place for chatting and encounter.
