Hay otros mundos, pero están en este”. Esta frase del poeta surrealista Paul Eluard queremos aplicarla a nuestros barrios, a nuestros municipios, a nuestros entornos cotidianos. Por ello afirmamos que “hay otros Móstoles, pero están en este”.
Durante cuatro días, más una noche en la que nos quedaremos a dormir en el museo, nos adentraremos en lo inesperado y pondremos a prueba nuestra imaginación para crear momentos mágicos que exploren formas de creación aún no conquistadas.
One year later, the question that underpins these conferences, challenges us, if possible, even more directly For which bodies, for what histories. In the face of the general uncertainty and the absolute lack of historical precedence that we are going through, this question confronts us with the contingency of history in the materiality of our bodies given the very violence that a brutal and savage irruption like this pandemic entails. We are confident that the curatorial threads - which were once amassed with rigour and care, and which are now being taken up again with the understanding of a vital transformation - continue to make sense.
As a Picnic Society, the CA2M invites several curators each year to design a program for the terrace of the Center. Every Thursday from the end of May to the beginning of July our terrace will become a space in which we will develop a program of activities in which the physical and the sound are mixed with the educational and participatory.
Queremos pasar estos dos últimos meses del curso paseando y poniendo el cuerpo por las salas del museo, para pensar en nosotras, en las paredes, en la exposiciones, en sus lugares, en los nuestros.
Triggering impulses, working in an experiential way, promoting critical attitudes through action, involving the body in learning processes ... These educational practices, in tune with the centre’s educational philosophy, are based on the construction of knowledge through experience.
In late 2015, the Spanish choreographer and performer Aimar Pérez Galí began to study the impact of the AIDS epidemic on the dance community in Spain and Latin America. The resulting work, which makes use of the practice of ‘contact improvisation’, was built as a conversation with the ghosts of those who are no longer with us. This year, in which we are in the midst of a new pandemic, marks 40 years since HIV’s first emergence; once again, touch has become forbidden. This fact brings a fresh relevance to this project, which first took shape at a performance workshop for teachers at CA2M three years ago.
CA2M’s Vegetable Garden on the Roof has been going for eight years. Over that time, we have experienced a profound process in which many different people have participated, making it a meeting point based on working together and sharing knowledge.
An amateur choir is a creative project in which all types of voices are welcome. The choir doesn’t just sing songs but aspires to embrace all the sounds in the world.
