Enric Casasses interprets Paul Éluard

On the 17th of January 1936 the French poet Paul Éluard arrived in Barcelona to give a talk on the occasion of the Pablo Picasso exhibition at the Sala Esteva. Though the original text has not survived, his talk was written up in the press, and exactly 76 years later, on the basis of those documentary sources, the poet Enric Casasses will offer an interpretation of what and how and how much Éluard may have said, mixing one poetic universe with another.

Éluard's talk went outlive on radio and Picasso himself listened to it in Paris: this time round it will be broadcasted by Sèrie BCN and will be heard by who knows how many artists of the future...
