At the end of every school year we like to think of a different way of starting the summer. This time, the artist Pablo Durango will pay us a visit to lead a workshop exploring new artistic strategies.

The workshop will examine the possibility of building an alternative narrative of our own identity.

Using various techniques like drag, storytelling and playing, we will set off on a journey to different realities and potential fictions.

Opening the portals to other dimensions, transforming our bodies and telling ourselves impossible stories is the point of departure on a journey to Multiversal Arcadia where the only limit is our imagination.

Young people from 13 to 21 years of age

18-21 July

Imagine that there are 140 strangers around you, all ready and willing to satisfy your needs, desires and whims. What would you ask for?

As part of the "Time Bank Live" artistic action, we are carrying out a workshop open to the general public in which we will be examining the concept of interdependence, exploring the simple yet difficult art of wishing, requesting, giving and gifting. People taking part in the workshop will also be included in a performance on 23 June.

In a society that denies interdependence and praises the heroicness of “I’d made my bed, I’ll lie on it”, asking for something has become even harder and riskier than giving. We tend to associate “giving” with generosity and “asking” with selfishness, but not knowing how to formulate and express our desires and needs is to deny our own fragility and therefore a way of not being fully present with other.

In this two-day workshop we use our bodies to explore the art of asking, giving and gifting from a fully committed engagement with pleasure, play and fun.

Participants in the workshop will also be part of the “Time Bank Live” performance at Picnic Session on 23 June, where each person will have a chance to auction a need, a desire or whim with the hope that it will be met or satisfied by one or various of the 140 spectators

Even if we wanted to, we cannot kill our dead. There are certain tasks that the dead summon us to do. And so, we carry them with us in our day to day lives, in small gestures or flashes of very intense emotion. How to share the losses, that which remains bound to us, the strange impermanence, that eagerness to bury our hearts, the confusing and incessant buzzing blue pain? Mourning is a political task, it builds community, it is a ritual of caring that reproduces life. Mourning unites us. I often talk to my friends about this, I believe that our grandmothers were the last ones to truly understand that death was part of life. They knew how to reconnect with the soil, and now perhaps it is time for us to create other rituals, other ways of being, of living and of dying.

Between January and June 2021, Marta Echaves carried out extensive research into mourning, its representations, politics and rituals. She was accompanied by the choreographer Esther Rodriguez Barbero, the artist Julia Montilla and the researcher Maria Rosón. From that series of meetings and conversations emerge certain questions and approaches which have shaped the programme of public activities That Blue Buzzing Sound.

Understanding research as a way of accompanying other projects that also address our contemporary relationship to death and grieving, That Blue Buzzing Sound focuses on sharing practices and poetics that make it possible to grasp experiences when language fails us and the end is centre-stage.

Marta Echaves. She is the coordinator of activities in Spain for the publishing house Caja Negra. She has written for artists' catalogues and publications and is, alongside María Ruido and Antonio Gomez Villar, the editor of Working Dead. Post-work scenarios (La virreina at the Centre of the Image). Interested in writing and historical research, her projects aim to revisit images and metaphors by focusing on intimate experiences and anecdotes as detonators of poetic memory devices. “La Contrarrevolución de los Caballos” was an investigation into heroin and HIV in the context of Spanish neoliberalism, which took on various formats and was shown in places such as Can Felipa, MACBA, MNCARS, ARCO... More recently, she presented her research into post-dictatorship paranormal memory with the conference "De las Acechanzas" (On the Hauntings) at the Domingo Festival.

The Huerto en la terraza of the CA2M has been holding workshops for almost a decade. During this time, we have lived through an active process involving the participation of many different people, all of whom have made it a meeting spot based on teamwork and shared knowledge.

Since its beginnings, the Huerto en la terraza has been a space whose aim is to go beyond just being a school of organic agriculture; it had to form a community. It has far exceeded this expectation, accumulating myriad experiences, learning, collective stories and community links around it, all of which make us proud to have such a space as this in Móstoles, one that is already a benchmark beyond our municipality’s borders.

Today, the community of the Huerto en la terraza of the CA2M faces the challenge of opening up to new people without losing the drive to carry out research and experimentation to motivate those who are already a part of it. For this reason, during this course we will provide an opportunity to those interested in starting out in the field of organic agriculture and permaculture, at its most basic levels, without forgetting the needs and learning pace of those who have already participated in the past and who require other lines of experimentation that combine vegetable gardens, art and our immense capacity to create with our own hands. This year, the workshops will change their timeslot to Thursday mornings. We hope that this change will bring more people to our vegetable garden so we can continue to share and learn together.

Free admission with limited capacity.

In collaboration with Break the Cycle Transition Institute

Image: spectrogram, the usual way of cleaning soundtracks of noises that get into recordings and which are detected on the basis of colours of different intensity and place on the spectrum.

In the summer of 1959 the Estonian non-fiction film producer and opera singer Friedrich Jürgenson and his partner tried to record the birdsong of a finch in order to use it in one of their documentaries. In the forest near their home Friedrich placed a tape recorder and remained silent as he tried to record the birdsong. On returning home, he played back what he had recorded.

The sound was clean and clear, the wind, the leaves as they moved, the song of the finch, but... there was something else. On the recording he could also hear a human voice imitating the sound of the finch which then started talking in Norwegian, commenting on the birdsong. Jürgenson supposed that it must have been someone who was also in the forest at the time who he had not been aware of. So, the following day he returned to the forest, but first checking the area to ensure that there was nobody about, and once again he placed the tape recorder beside the finch’s nest. When he returned home satisfied, Friedrich played back the recording. This time there was no one whistling but there was a voice. A voice which he recognized as his own dead mother calling him. Friedel … my little Friedel …. Can you hear me?

In this two-day workshop we will experiment with the boundaries between art and magic in order to defy the logic of our surrounding world.

A workshop led by Raisa Maudit, a multidisciplinary artist whose work is defined by representations of individual and collective desires, needs and expectations in conflict with socio-political standards, generating experiences that are transformed into little acts of subversion.
