One of the project’s key features is its transversal nature, acting as a crossroads where different disciplines can coexist. Tabakalera aims to inspire reflection on contemporary issues via a programme of seminars, workshops, screenings, exhibitions and publications. It creates a critical community by supporting creation, knowledge and exhibition programmes that are aimed at both a specialist audience and the general public.
Cale, cale, cale! Caale!!!, curated by Juan Canela, is the result of the call for curatorial projects residency launched by Tabakalera and taken forward throughout 2016, and comprises work from eight artists—much of them new productions—which questions the role of magic and ritual in relation to nature.
Ariketak: la segunda respiración is the new thematic focus that Tabakalera proposes for the 2018-2019 two-year period, in which it will create an extensive programme that includes conferences, seminars, exhibitions and film and music seasons.
This exhibition by Adriá Julià uses a collection of photographs of Romanesque churches, the circulation and traffic of works, of the spectacularisation of conflict and landscape as a foundation to recover the marginal notes that allow us to analyse the coincidences and frictions between historical accounts and media narratives.
