This activity is parallel to the opening of ARCO, being India the guest country and the exhibition Cultura popular India and Mas Allá. The (emerging) schism never stated at sala Alcalá 31 of the Regional Government of Madrid, CA2M offers a vision of the popular India from films.

PROGRAMME

FEB FR 20. Om Shanti Om, de Farah Khan

India - 2007 - 35 mm, 168 min. Director: Farah Khan
Script: Farah Khan.
Music: Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani, Pyarelal Ramprasad, Sharma.
Production: Red Chillies Entertainment.

Om Prakash, , a two-bit actor, meets a Bollywood film star with whom he is in love. Unfortunaly,  they are not  destiny to live their love in that life, Om dies in a fray. The story comes back to present, where Om Prakash reincarnates in Om Kappor, the superstar from Bollywood 2007.

Auditorium
Free entry

FEB 21 SAT. Parineeta, de Pradeep Sarkar.
Director Pradeep Sarkar. India, color, 35mm. 130 min.
Script: Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Production: Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Music: Shantanu Moitra. Letra: Swanand Kirkire.
Actors: Raima Sen, Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Vidya Bala.

This film is based on a literary classic, at least with contact points. The film maker knows that he has in hand a subject with legions of viewers. At the same time, he has the challenge of distilling emotions written on the screen with virtuosity. Pradeep Sarkar is successful. And how! He has taken the liberty of passing the scene of his debut film Parineeta, by the writer Saratchandra Chatterjee (author of Devdas) of Calcutta from 1913 to the vibrant and sultry Calcutta from 1962. But beyond the challenge of deploying the classic pages with vivid images on the screen, without subtracting one iota of emotional subtlety to the story and its characters. Shekhar (Saif Ali Khan's idol), son of a wealthy businessman, and Lolita (Vidya Balan radiant), an orphan who lives with the family of his uncle, are neighbors and childhood friends who do not recognize the intense love that binds them together, until a  London manager arrives and creates a love triangle. A refreshing return to the romanticism of the past, Parineeta is a wild and irresistible ride in the purest Bollywood style.

INFORMACIÓN COMPLEMENTARIA

Los cuatro programas de cortos presentan un variado conjunto de la creación reciente en vídeo. Los programas 1 y 3 han sido comisariados por el CA2M y recogen algunas creaciones exhibidas durante los últimos años en festivales y exposiciones internacionales. A pesar de que estos programas no responden a un planteamiento temático, las piezas que se presentan comparten muchos puntos de conexión, tanto en los asuntos tratados como en los aspectos formales, quizás por que sean reflejo de las pre ocupaciones que ocupan a la mayoría de artistas representados, todos ellos nacidos después de la década de los 70.

El fin de semana contará también con un programa comisariado por el colectivo madrileño Playtime audiovisuales (programa 2) que recoge algu nas de las últimas producciones nacionales que se encuentran en la periferia del cine comercial; producciones de autor con marcado carácter independiente que están a camino entre el documental, la ficción y la videocreación. Este programa recoge una sele cción de artistas españoles emergentes que con sus obras intentan romper fronteras entre formatos, soportes y también espacios de exhibición. Y cerraremos el fin de semana con un programa temático de corte más experimental comisariado por Xavier García B aldón: El paisaje del hombre en el que se suceden paisajes reales y soñados, utópicos y apocalípticos, desiertos o habitados, primitivos, mediáticos, naturales o humanos. El arte del paisaje en nueve filmes y vídeos recientes, entre postales mandados des de la prehistoria, cuadros de otros mundos, escenas humanas y visiones de videojuegos.

Asimismo se presentará por primera vez en Madrid la última película de la gran dama del cine de autor francés Agnès Varda "Les Plages d'Agnès".

La parte musical del fin de semana la completan tres conciertos que nos acercan a la magia del directo desde posiciones muy diversas: la electrónica como acompañamiento sonoro del cine, la mecánica aplicada a la creación musical y una aproximación al jazz desde una óptica nada ortodoxa… de la mano de Tadeo, Pierre Bastien y Kammerflimmer Kollektief respectivamente. Todo ello acompañado de picoteo, bebida y espacios para la charla y el encuentro.

ARTISTAS: Peggy Ahwesh, Pierre Bastien, Alex Brendemühl, Carlos Casas, Luis Cerveró, Chris Chong Chan Fui, Anouk de Clercq, Aitor Equeverría, Félix Fernández, Fernando Franco, Beatrice Gibson, Stephen Gray, John Hey, Kammerflimmerkollektief, Pablo Lamar, Adam Leech, Vicent Meessen, Michael Morley, Jacco Olivier, Pedro Ortuño, Manuel Padding, Enrique Piñuel, Elodie Pong, Michael Robinson, Rogelio Sastre, Tadeo, Mike Tamney, Agnés Varda, César Velasco Broca.

Obituary is a live monologue performed by the artist which falls apart and eats itself.

Combining characters and motifs from past work, the performance acts as a parody of Plato’s cave and an expansion of the language found in Matt Copson’s animation and installation work.

This is his first fully-fledged performance with live soundtrack by long-time collaborator felicita.

MATT COPSON

Matt Copson was born in 1992 in Oxford, England. His work uses theatrical devices and artistic tropes to create existential dramas of contemporaneity, abstraction, eternal recurrence and the uncanny.
His shown exhibitions and projects at CLEARING (Brussels) Swiss Institute (New York), Louis Vuitton Foundation (Paris), Mönchehaus Museum (Goslar) and Serpentine Sackler Gallery (London). In 2022, he will premiere ‘Last Days’, his first opera as a librettist and director, at the Royal Opera House, London.

A pond emerges
A frenetic sprouting of the phreatic
An invisible flow
There are holes in the history of this pond and each one is filled in their own way
Dug out by a giant
A gigantic company, a gigantic machine, a gigantic desire
And then nothing can dry it, but it will evaporateIf you stop nearby, you can sometimes hear a choir of children from a nearby bilingual public school learning the song the water cycle… 
When the children go back to school in September they are taken to the pond
They spend the morning sitting down, looking, they see that it is no longer there
They had visited the pond in February, collected samples of its crystal-clear water
And one evening in spring they went to listen to the frogs
An historian, a lawyer and an artist agree to start there.

Ciudad Sur is a shared experimental space begun in 2021 which, taking its starting point in Móstoles, wishes to explore the many faces and manifold riches that generate a sense of belonging in the cities within the metropolitan area of Madrid. Its second edition is called Brota invisible (Invisible Flow).

Brota invisible is aimed at all those interested in a shared rethinking of the inhabited space. Over the course of six sessions, spaced out between May and December 2022, we will explore the idiosyncrasy of Móstoles based on an omnipresent yet very often invisible element, which is water. Up until relatively recently, the people of Móstoles sourced their water locally, underground. This all changed when Móstoles connected to Isabel II canal water supply network. Taking our point of departure in this rupture, and all its ensuing implications, we will open the conversation. But there are also other elements in the various strata of the city that are forgotten about: the memory of those who are no longer with us and those that were silenced. And also the initiative of locals to decide how to build their own city. We will try to bring to the surface and throw light on some of these invisible flows, rivers that run underneath the ground we stand on, ponds that disappear and which, almost as if by magic, suddenly reappear.

The first session will take place on Tuesday 24 May and will consist of a walk which will start at CA2M at 6:00 pm. The following sessions will take place on 21 June, 27 September, 25 October, 22 November and 13 December. Each session will centre on this core theme as well as the interests suggested by participants. The enrolment form for the first session is already available.

AHIMOS (Amigos de la Historia de Mostoles, Friends of the History of Mostoles) is a relatively new association which came about with the purpose of investigating and promoting the past of this city in the Region of Madrid. Despite its newness, some of its members have been involved in these activities for almost twenty years, on a journey involving thousands of hours spent digging into archives and libraries, into excavations in search of treasure that nobody expected, of strolling streets and countryside to portray them as they are... and all with the goal of bringing the past customs, events and society closer to the local community today, in the hope that they will appreciate and feel a greater attachment to the place where they live.

Patricia Esquivias grew up in the suburbs on the outskirts of Madrid. Since she came of age she has lived in different cities, always searching in them for traces of local crafts and artisanship. Since 2005 she has mainly worked with video, a discipline she uses to share her narratives on history and the city. In 2016 she had a solo show at CA2M called “At Times Embellished”.

Carlos Copertone studied Law and obtained a PhD on the ways cities grow. In his teaching practice he literally proposed taking to the streets to explore and rethink them. All these approaches have gradually taken him closer to the field of architecture and contemporary art. He has curated various exhibitions and has also published books and is closely involved with Caniche, a publishing production and action platform outside conventional exhibition circuits that came into being in 2015.

Curated by Jesús Alcaide, Néstor García Díaz and Víctor Aguado Machuca.

Bogomir Doringer, Chenta Tsai AKA Putochinomaricón, Carles Congost, Ana Laura Aláez, Joan Morey, The Congosound, Magui Dávila, Nayare Soledad Otorongx, Gema Marín Méndez, Manuel Segade, Snap Bitch! X Don’t hit a la negrx (Galaxia, Wat3rmami AKA Donovan Toxic), Espai d’Art Contemporani de Castelló research group (Bartolomé Limón, Rubén Serna and María Sánchez), DIDDCC working group (Andrea Martín, Manuela Muñoz, Clara Neches, Manuel Padín, Natalia de la Piedra and Rita Zamora).

The idea behind the Image Symposium is to provide a space for collective thinking on the theory, practice, semantic openings and contemporary demarcations of visual cultures, taking the form of a forum for debate, a symposium and workshops, and an open call for research projects.

The point of departure for this year’s symposium is the work of a research group at CA2M which has sourced in Manel Clot’s texts a discursive output which has left us, more than anachronisms, reminiscences of the 1990s, like, for instance, underscoring the connections between the concept of club culture and art practice; or inventing and implementing appreciative and operative categories, where none previously existed, for the consideration of new expressive repertoires and new meaningful registers that would become symptomatic of a time and a place. In fact, the title given to this year’s symposium comes from Musée des phrases (2003-2015) by Manel Clot and the image is by Carles Congost, taken in Manel Clot’s studio with the assistance of Daniel Riera; in it one can see a young Fine Art student called Joan Morey.

The symposium is spread over three days with a full programme of conversations, reading sessions, performative lectures and listening sessions, which will help to situate a number of issues concerning club culture but, at once, they will also respond to the demand to expand the field of given representations of subjectivity, of the fluctuation of its value, of the position of desire; of recognizing possibilities of dissidence with regards social distribution or other relationships between the body and temporality.

The idea behind the Image Symposium is to provide a space for collective thinking on the theory, practice, semantic openings and contemporary demarcations of visual cultures, taking the form of a forum for debate, a symposium and workshops, and an open call for research projects.

The point of departure for this edition of the symposium is the work of a research group at MCA2M which has sourced in Manel Clot’s texts a multitude of incipient ideas, obsessive desires, textured references, serious nostalgia, untimely utopias and sudden fatigues that underpinned the brevity and transience of his sentences and dominated his thinking almost permanently. Rather than anachronisms, his discursive output has left us reminiscences of the 1990s: one worth underscoring is the connections between the concept of club culture and art practice; another is the invention and implementation of appreciative and operative categories, where none previously existed, for the consideration of new expressive repertoires and new meaningful registers that would become symptomatic of a time and a place.

This symposium is curated by Jesús Alcaide, Néstor García and Víctor Aguado. The title is borrowed from Musée des phrases, 2003-2015, by Manel Clot. The image (High Culture, 1996) is by Carles Congost, produced for an exhibition at Transmission Gallery and taken in Manel Clot’s studio with the assistance of Daniel Riera. The image shows a young Fine Art student called Joan Morey.

CALL

MCA2M announces an open call for the submission of research projects to be presented at the 27th Image Symposium, whose theme is club culture: club culture as the act and practice of expanding the field of given representations of subjectivity, of producing fictions of somatic permanence, fluctuations in desire, possibilities of dissidence towards the social distribution or other relationships between the body and temporality.

The selected projects may be presented in two different formats:

(1) Presentation of papers or performative lectures, with a duration of 30-45 minutes during the afternoon, based on or presenting for the first time a research project related with the theme of the symposium.

(2) Commented listening sessions on a theme of interest for the symposium, with a duration of 45-60 minutes during the morning, either closed or open to the participation of attendants in the construction of meaning.

Projects submitted to the open call should send: application form and project dossier to the following email: recepcion.ca2m@madrid.org. When attaching video or audio files, please follow the specific instructions included in the form. The submission and presentation of the project can be made in English or Spanish. Forms with incomplete information shall not be accepted.

The deadline for presenting projects is 31 March. The curators of this edition of the symposium shall select a maximum of 6 projects, bearing in mind the selection criteria of the relevance of the project to the theme and format of the symposium, as well as its overall coherence within an artistic or research practice.

The names of the selected projects will be announced on 7 April. Although persons selected shall be informed of the exact day and time of the presentation, it is expected that they be available to attend the symposium on all three days: 19, 20 and 21 May.

Selected projects shall receive a fee of €300 for their presentation at the symposium, which shall be subject to obligatory tax deductions. When necessary MCA2M shall also run with the travel and accommodation expenses.

The garden on the museum’s roof terrace has already earned a name for itself as a beacon for agro-ecology in the city. Since we first started, we have gone through an intense process in which many different people have been involved, making it a meeting point where people work together and share their experience and know-how.

Since it was first set up, the roof terrace garden was conceived as more than a place to teach ecological agriculture because the founding mandate was to create a local community. This goal has been fulfilled today thanks to a hardcore of people who have now accrued years of experience, enjoyment, learning and sharing together based on the practice of agro-ecology and permaculture, recovering traditional rural knowledge and exploring ideas to face the challenges of sustainability.

Today this challenge is more urgent that ever, which is why we need to expand its reach and pay more attention to the direct practice of sustainability in cities, reinforcing self-sufficiency, producing food for self-consumption, DIY and locally-sourced production, promoting and motivating a culture of proximity. This will be our best weapon to respond to the major challenges of the twenty-first century, like climate change, the crisis in natural resources and the need to transition towards a model of society more respectful with the planet and the people who live in it.

To face up to this formidable challenge, we have the experience and collaboration of Instituto de Transición Rompe el Círculo [Break the Circle Transition Institute], which focuses its activity over the last decade on sustainability in cities, taking Móstoles as a testing ground. That’s why today our roof terrace garden now becomes a Community Sustainability Laboratory.

 

 

PROGRAMME 2022

BLOCK 2: SELF-SUFFICIENCY IN ORGANIC GARDENING
EVERY THURSDAY 11:30-13:30
Growing locally and learning to be self-sufficient is becoming increasingly important to ensure our food sovereignty. Join this course and learn how to grow with us and why it is necessary for our cities to commit to sustainability. 

THURSDAY 24 MARCH 11:30 – 1:30
Growing crops in the city.

We will prepare seed beds for the spring in our organic garden and provide pointers on how to prepare a garden of potted plants to produce our own zero-km food.

THURSDAY 31 MARCH 11:30 – 1:30
Sharing the CA2M roof terrace. A session with Elena Alonso and the roof-top garden

This introductory session will talk about how to design and create ecosystems based on the principles of permaculture and will set the ground rules for starting an urban forest garden on our terrace. The session includes the participation of the artist Elena Alonso, whose installation Al cuidado de las pequeñas sombras (Caring for little shadows) will help us to understand the need for a better inter-species relationship in order to maintain a balanced ecosystem.

THURSDAY 7 APRIL 11:30 – 1:30
Planning a forest garden in the city

What’s the difference between an ordinary forest garden and an urban forest garden? An understanding of microclimates. What are the shortcomings and the needs of a terrace garden?

THURSDAY 21 APRIL 11:30 – 1:30
Planting a forest garden: tree stratum

We start by planting the biggest plants. Why do we choose these species?

THURSDAY 28 APRIL 11:30 – 1:30
Planting a forest garden: shrub stratum

THURSDAY 2 JUNE 11:30 – 1:30 
Preserves workshop

Another way of making the most of surplus produce is preserves. It is especially important to pay extra care to hygiene conditions to ensure that the canned or preserved food lasts longer and in optimum conditions.

THURSDAY 9 JUNE 11:30 – 1:30 
Making bread at home workshop

One of the easy and most gratifying ways of being self-sufficient is to make our own bread. Learn to make sourdough starter and basic recipes for making bread at home.

THURSDAY 16 JUNE 11:30 – 1:30 
Preparing a sun drier (double session 10:00-2:00)

Sundrying food is a little-used practice that helps to preserve food throughout the year with their nutritional qualities practically intact.
Join us in this double woodworking session in which we will design and build our own drier for summer gluts.

THURSDAY 23 JUNE 11:30 – 1:30 
Seed collection

In the last of our self-sufficiency workshops we will learn to choose and preserve seeds from our garden so that we don’t have to buy them every year.

Very few people know that underneath the museum, exactly three floors underground, there is a hatch that opens onto to a flight of steps which leads down to the depths of an underground river that crosses through the whole of Móstoles. The education department is very much aware of this idea of what is taking place beneath our feet, like an underground river. The most meaningful processes, those that transform us the most, are precisely the ones that take place without us realizing it.

Yet again, this year we invite you to join this course to share together and stir emotions, activating resources that ensure that this will be possible, focusing on processes, events and works that go unnoticed, that happen too slowly to be perceived or that take place within the confines of what we take to be normal.

We have invited artists and collectives whose practices are like tributaries of that underground river that runs through issues like anonymity, invisibility, misfits and the experience of a shared body from the self or from ourselves, but also from the power of the word. A river that does not follow the pre-established banks and returns us once again to the question contained in the name of this course.

CA2M organises educational activities on contemporary art and thinking that can be framed within the tradition of community colleges, aimed particularly at young and adult students.

The course addresses some of the key issues for a proper understanding and interpretation of art today. These activities can be divided into two parts: the first consists of the presentation of a theme by a guest speaker and the second part involves a debate open to the audience: viewing listening and dialogue as transformative actions; art as a shared meeting ground and the development of critical attitudes to imposed reality.

Manuel Segade and Tania Pardo guide us through the exhibition called Dialecto CA2M – made up of the CA2M Collection and the ARCO Foundation Collection – to introduce us to a century of contemporary art history in Madrid but told from Móstoles.

The stories and anecdotes about the works on display are interwoven with the way they are displayed; with the change of lighting, the colours of the walls or via posters with unusual information about the artworks.

It’s not a question of seeing the exhibition with its protagonists but of them accompanying us on a collective journey through a public collection that belongs to all the inhabitants of the Autonomous Community of Madrid.

The fact that we talk to each other as a museum is a way of showing that what seems to be ours is really yours.

Dates:

28 November: Manuel Segade

12 December: Tania Pardo

19 December: Manuel Segade

9 January: Tania Pardo

Please sign up in advance by calling 91 276 02 21 or by sending an email to: ca2m@madrid.org

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.
