Seminar " Partitions "

Partitioning the second lab project "File F.X .: Zero Economy", staged by various seminars, some of the divisions that support the delivery of what is sensible thought and act, aesthetics and poetics, pedagogy and factory. Following the theatrical model of the "Economy: Picasso," the conference is divided into different areas, without any hierarchy, but with a clear indication of the nature of the statement that different host sites. Between the museum and various social and cultural spaces of the city, developed a series of interventions, two by two, on the need for the democratization of heritage policies play in front of police, borrowing the body as socializing worker and citizen or the old debate between caritas and fides today has become the opposition between communism and financial capitalism.

Time: 19pm

My work is an investigation of the concept of editing. It focuses on the mechanisms that define, evaluate, sort, classify, select, reproduce and distribute images to create discourse in the political, economic and cultural life of contemporary society; the way in which the figure of the edition defines our world and the relations of power between groups of people. How to take pictures worth? What images should play? What are the reasons for which are reproduced images and others? What are the techniques and the means employed to enhance the content of an image? What are the different weights of the images according to their support? Who makes the choice in the media? To what extent the distribution is part of the publishing process and edit a form?

Why do I say when I say Julio Julian? Is that the will is always outside. Two names, two opposite directions at the same ride, among other streets named and unnamed official. The streets are unofficial because they are homeless itineraries. There are lists of streets are roads, shortcuts, connecting streets -Meeting turn, now, officials such as will occur between the Foundation and the Picasso Museum Estate. Traffic paths made by ordinary people anonymously. Ways of current stamp mark on as many people as they walk, write a name always open and never resolved: DinsFora.

"Public Photography"

Place: Museu Picasso

Time: 19pm

"Photography is like a mosaic, only becomes short when presented together," said August Sander. There are two ways to achieve this synthesis: the exhibition and the photobook.

The photobook is the means used by the most important photographers to produce their best work, a publication of photographs arranged as a continuation of arguments and images with complex meanings.

These experiments provisional hypothesis that the art world are subjected to public scrutiny.

The photo books are a proven way to present, communicate and read photos. The exhibitions are less practical, but they have important advantages: groups of works relate to each other and with the public, generate discussions and create opinion.

Photos are handcrafted images are not unique, there is no "original" on the contrary, the pictures are reproducible images and techniques -all are "copies" that are published in magazines, posters, books, etc. Spectators photos are readers of these media forms.

The cycle of movement of documents from a file, it is a route open to interpretation and appropriation levels which put its value in another time, in a field outside. This route lies the important task of classification and custody in relation to the generation of creative actions of cultural renewal, which must necessarily be monitoring projective values, meanings and facts that attest documents.

It was time to think. And the support committees were proposed inventory looting. They could not simply dedicated to managing misery. The protests and struggles emerging long suppressed, had resulted in the drafting of a sort of constitution for the protection of property of all. Sought to reverse the situation and establish the rights that correspond to all the inhabitants of the city of Madrid. This law was known popularly by the Communal Charter. To compose it were inspired by the era of the Middle Ages because, among bundles and charters old -comú- found a word that could not be defined by reference or private property or the state. The Charter embodies the spirit of the times, advocated a new citizen statute by which public institutions also remained exorcitzades bureaucracy and economic interests, reinvented away from the political and financial flows.
