Audiovisual project

CA2M has invited the filmmaker Pili Álvarez and the researcher Mercedes Álvarez to undertake research on the project by the El Banquete collective within its Artist at Work artist-in-residence programme. The goal is to produce an audiovisual work that will examine the project’s critical and practical challenges. It is viewed as a kind of device for the critical analysis of an art project at a school. The film will be based on sequences recorded as live cinema that follow up the main characters: teachers, artists, educators and students.

As the students begin to appropriate the space and the pyramid begins to gain in presence, conflicts start to arise that not only affect the children involved in the construction of the pyramid. The frictions question other agents in the school that are affected by the autonomy of the group that inevitably questions the existing power structures in the school.

This audiovisual proposal looks into film’s ability to evince and to take part in educational processes and thus multiply the ways in which practices that operate on an relational level can be followed, shared and explored.

The process of postproduction will be finished during this school year and the film will be presented and distributed in 2017.

Programme for primary schools with the support of Fundación Daniel y Nina Carasso

With the audiovisual “Un número no es una palabra” (A number is not a word) the Las Lindes collective is presenting fragments of the research and experimentation it has been carrying out over the last three years. A collective film (and not a film by the collective) which, over and above a diagnosis of reality or debating concepts whose excessive use has eroded their meaning, is an invitation to do and to make. A series of exercises that implement ideas, bordering on the absurd, to throw themselves into play and, as we have come to expect from Las Lindes, creating debate.

The public presentation of this audiovisual will be the beginning of a new phase for the collective. The goal of this project together with the consequences, changes, tensions and losses that the pandemic has caused in the collective’s fields of exploration—art, cultural production and education—have already begun to suggest and provoke new and different approaches. And not so much for our capacity to adapt as much as a case of resistance. We are still convinced that even today it is necessary to conceive forms and spaces from which we can think and act together, now more than ever.

In short, Las Lindes have made a film that we want to show you this coming Friday 25 September. Even at the risk of not being understood, it steers clear of commonplaces in order to create a place in common and to look for ways of talking that avoid the traps of language.

Las Lindes is a research and action group working with education, art and cultural practices. Its members are Virginia Villaplana, María José Ollero, Diego del Pozo, Yera Moreno, Pablo Martínez, Marta de Gonzalo and Pili Álvarez.
