EXERCISES IN DISORIENTATION. 3 TRIPS TO EXTRAORDINARY PLACES
OCTOBER – NOVEMBER 2020
FRIDAYS 16:00 - 21:00 | 17:00 lectures*
We have been left exposed, without a sense of time or the certainty of touch. Our realities have been turned on their heads, upsetting our sense of direction. We want to take advantage of this fluctuation to explore the art of uncertainty, the unknown and the unpredictable, but also what is already being inscribed in the landscape for some time now.
And we will do so on bus trips, spending some time together, stepping outside the boundaries of the museum, mobilising our imagination in other places, thinking about other ways of being together, allowing ourselves to be moved anew, keeping in step in both conversation and listening. We propose pushing the boundaries of the Region of Madrid to see the museum from a distance by visiting places that generate surroundings which allow us to imagine in an unfettered way.
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. For this session we are organizing three bus trips together with artists, researchers and curators to places linked to their artistic practices..
Sofía Montenegro | To Casa de Campo, telling us about her project Fondo de Delfín
Cuqui Jeréz + José Luis + Maral Kekejian | To the Villarejo de Salvanés fireworks company in Villarejo de Salvanés, telling us about their project for Veranos de la Villa
Raquel G. Ibáñez | To Robledo de Chavela, talking about dragons in the church and telling us about her project on dreams. We will sleep overnight in the El Escorial youth hostel
* Places are limited. The coach will leave at 4:30 pm from the roundabout between Avenida de la Constitución and Paseo de Goya (Móstoles). We will first gather at the entrance to the museum at 4:00 pm. The return will be at 9:00 pm to the same location. During the trip participants are invited to take part in the group reading of a publication chosen for the occasion.
