Curated by Isabel de Naverán in collaboration with Escuelita.

One year later, the question that underpins these conferences, challenges us, if possible, even more directly For which bodies, for what histories. In the face of the general uncertainty and the absolute lack of historical precedence that we are going through, this question confronts us with the contingency of history in the materiality of our bodies given the very violence that a brutal and savage irruption like this pandemic entails. We are confident that the curatorial threads - which were once amassed with rigour and care, and which are now being taken up again with the understanding of a vital transformation - continue to make sense.

These conferences rethink the preconception that situates bodies as a consequence of the historical circumstances in which they live, as, although history makes bodies, they also make history. The latter is told through images that, unlike bodies, remain fixed and mute, forcing us to reckon with history, rather than just narrate it. The images seem to bring the events to a halt and are often relegated to a one-to-one correspondence with the facts. Here we are presented with the concept of listening to how some of them reveal themselves in order to contradict and contravene their own narratives, while at the same time rebelling, warning us of other stories that emerge in their re-reading and in the dispute against the ordering of time. Seen in this way, some images do not remain mute: they mutate and act at the same time as they are enacted, manoeuvred and sustained. Bodies are also enacted and subjected by other corporealities, those that inhabit their gestures apprehended by the knowledge of a tradition or by a certain way of relating and disposing themselves in their varied worlds. The question of the title imagines a making of bodies and images that, in a state of mutual listening, establishes connections that are out of time, anachronistic, and syncopated, defying the linearity that predisposes a before and an after.

The twenty-sixth edition of the conference continues along the same vein of the previous ones, delving into the relationship between images, gestures and performativity. This edition sets out to think about images through the making of choreography and performance, its practice, and its specific materiality.

It is conceived of as a study programme which, subject to prior registration, brings together a group of people interested in and committed to the issues raised. A meeting in which speakers and attendees share time, conversations and experiences over three interlinked sessions. The first two focus on specific artistic and choreographic processes that explore notions of history, tradition, and transmission from body techniques that allow us to speculate about processes that can be described as a recognition of a gestural archive, an estrangement from one's own tradition, or listening to alternative modes of presence. From within these parameters, we seek to expand the study to a dialogue with partnering agents of art, anthropology and philosophy, in the intersections of knowledge. A third session will take place on Wednesday morning, in a pine forest near the museum, and is organised as an open-air walk with the intention of collectively sharing and offering feedback on the reflections and debates experienced during the previous days.

Speakers: Ana Folguera, Thiago Granato, Pablo Marte, Ameen Mettawa, Julia Morandeira, Rita Natálio, Isabel de Naverán, Eszter Salamon, Manuel Segade, Estrella Serrano.

«After a very long winter, you see a green parrot perched on a blossoming almond tree. You would never have seen this in Madrid not long ago, but now it’s a common sight. We don’t know how we’re going to get back on track, and one thing we’re left with is celebrating a world that’s not going to be exactly the same. There are many things, even more when celebrating is part of the process of leaving behind, and moving forward. That path that is knowing what we follow. A public place, for everyone, green, high up, free, and specific. A place like a picnic.

This programme was shaped around the theme of tradition in an intuitive way, and we say intuitively because it was not actively sought and it was not until everything had been designed that we actually recognised this fact. Tradition understood in an expanded form, placed between the material and immaterial of this moment we are living. And who says when it is and when it is no longer like that? Throughout the sessions we see the most literal translation represented by craftsmanship, by mythology and inherited customs, but we also see that this whole world is reinterpreted, remixed, subverted, and left open to the air of the tensions of today’s world. In this open sky, questions and suggestions appear about what tradition means, to be tradition but also to make and create it. To believe it. Sometimes the folkloric appears, sometimes the ceremonial. Things that we know exist but that we have never seen also appear, which, because they are part of our dreams, also belong to us. At other times, there are interpretations that are so mixed in their languages and influences that they overflow. Yet, at the same time, when overlapped they create an image in which you can recognise yourself in the background. These are very local picnics. In them, there is a continuous reference to what is part of us and what we cannot be detached from. This happens and is interspersed, and suddenly it brings us to common ground where we can be together. And there is, in all this, a moment of self-reference of what the actual tradition of the picnic is and the place that is this terrace. We want to transfer these two things to other places, to other formats and, in short, to be able to live in the different ways we have always appreciated. A terrace can also be a forest.

We have skipped a spring. This is what we thought before everything happened, now we don’t want to wear shoes. We’re telling you this because it’s true. All that remains is for us to invite you to look together with us at what is coming from what has already passed.

As a Picnic Society, the CA2M invites several curators each year to design a program for the terrace of the Center. Every Thursday from the end of May to the beginning of July our terrace will become a space in which we will develop a program of activities in which the physical and the sound are mixed with the educational and participatory.

Triggering impulses, working in an experiential way, promoting critical attitudes through action, involving the body in learning processes ... These educational practices, in tune with the centre’s educational philosophy, are based on the construction of knowledge through experience. Thus, the exhibition’s performative routes focus on the spectator's experience and turn their gaze towards current art. In this way, we create meeting spaces in which to experiment and construct critical discourse regarding contemporary work. 

At this time, we wish to invite you to visit two of CA2M’s exhibitions with us.
On Saturdays at 6:30 PM we propose visiting TRÉMULA, artist Javi Cruz’s exhibition, together. And on Sundays at 12:30 PM, VEROÍR EL FRACASO ILUMINADO (EXPERIENCE THE ILLUMINATED FAILURE) by the artist Cecilia Vicuña. There will be a maximum of 6 people.

To sign up, write to educacion.ca2m@madrid.org or call 91 276 02 21. You can also come directly to the museum and, if there are not too many of us, join the tour by leaving your details at reception. We take all of these measures in order to take care of ourselves and to take care of you, though we are aware that these measures may change according to the situation. We look forward to meeting up with you again.

Aimed at secondary school students, this visit-workshop focuses on the act of painting, and more specifically on thinking about colours. If you give them time, colours become mysterious. Many of them came about initially as pigments for artistic painting; sometimes their names refer to the geographical regions where they were first used or found, or to the minerals and chemical substances used in their composition.

The names for colours vary depending on cultures and people: it could be the case that the same name for a colour might suggest a different shade to people from different countries. In addition, some have a very precise and unambiguous definition, while others only give vague hints. We can see, for instance, that the sky above Móstoles at 2:26 pm today is Móstoles blue, Thursday blue or sky grey. But that is not exactly it either.

One thing that strikes us as fundamental in Mitsuo Miura’s work is his way of looking at his surroundings, of noticing all the minute changes. Colours, but also humidity, shadows and the weather are all raw material to construct by using what is available to us and to expand the world we think we see.

The Under-21 team is a group of young people from the ages of 16 to 21 who are interested in culture, art and community life.

We focus on artistic practices that foster dissident attitudes and collective processes of creation.

Our way of working is in constant evolution. It almost seems like a miracle now to be able to physically meet up in the museum to share time, but it is important to us.

In the new 2022-2023 school year we wish to recover the museum with meetings and hook-ups with artists and collectives, to don high heels, to think about unsustainability, to think about small ways of changing our world through art and to adopt to changing circumstances like chameleons.

We are launching a call to increase the team and so begin with greater strength. Join us and discover the team!

SATURDAYS FROM OCTOBER

To take flight and hover about the school is the practice with which we begin this school year.

In order to take a breather and to get a bird’s-eye view of the year that is just beginning we have invited the artist Olga Diego to lead a performance workshop with one single objective: to defy gravity.

In this workshop we will imagine and build our own airborne device. Collectively we will undertake a prior study, make calculations, sketches, scale models, preliminary tests and then the launch. The forms and systems of this aerostat will be experimental, defined and created by participants under Olga Diego’s watchful eye.

Here, there is no such thing as failure because the workshop provides room for all possible ideas: flying, pre-flying, pro-flying, pro-failure, pre-fall, anti-flight, pre-disaster, and so on.

Each school year we organize a workshop for teachers with a performance artist, consisting of an intensive week-long project during which we create bonds of cooperation between the school and the museum as we explore issues concerning educational processes and the performativity of teaching.

In previous years we have had workshops with Los Torreznos, Tania Bruguera, Pere Faura, Itziar Okariz, Norberto Llopis, Nilo Gallego, Dora García, Aimar Pérez Galí, Luz Broto, Aitana Cordero, Jiři Kovanda, Paz Rojo and Mónica Valenciano.

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.

Everyone dreams of flying, the artist Olga Diego tells us, but if you haven’t yet dreamed of flying, there is still time.

During the last school year Universidad Popular took up the challenge to bewitch us again with art, to rediscover the ability to inspire awe. Starting out from this idea, the museum’s educational department has conceived this year’s programme as a place where the incredible can happen because it makes us believe in it. The sessions will focus on thinking about or experimenting with occult practices related with art that subvert scientific logic and conventional forms of knowledge: art practices that deceive the eye, that work with the inexplicable and turn lead into gold.

The course will use a series of publications which will be available for consulting at the CA2M library. In addition, before each session, we invite participants to join in a group reading of a publication selected for the occasion.

CA2M organises further educational activities in contemporary art and thinking within the tradition of community adult education centres. Its courses address some of the fundamental issues for a proper understanding of art today. They are divided into two parts: the first consists in the presentation of a theme by a guest speaker and the second consists in opening a debate to all participants. This structure can change to accommodate more experimental formats introduced by the individual guest speakers at each session.

SESSIONS

24 OCTOBER
Make Yourself Matter to Someone
Raisa Maudit is preparing a performative conference which will explore the laws of desire in force both in the practice of magic and the occult as well as in art. Through a survey of different occult practices ranging from the nineteenth century until the present moment and the core axes of her artistic and curatorial work, we will address questions on dissident identities, surviving the system, inhabiting darkness, and how to achieve your desires but only perishing a little in the attempt.

Magic is the definitive art. We understand Magic and the Occult as all those processes that are based on symbolism and imagination which, through actions and words, wish to affect their surroundings by engendering changes and transformations in natural laws, in space, in time, in bodies, in psyches and in identities. No form of magic is possible without putting it into practice. In magic, practice starts out from an almost suicidal openness to leap into the unknown and letting it hit you with all it has got. It is based on questioning each and every one of the things that we take for granted. Magic hopes to alter the very weft of reality itself. Magic and Art have points in common such as speculation and the allegorical but at once they have a beef in which Art always loses out. We will take a look at Dion Fortune and psychic self-defence, The Craft, otherkin identities, vampires as the definitive evolution, demonology, Magic Battles, neuro-divergent rebellion, and how to get your hands on a free home.

31 OCTOBER
Queer Spirituality as Resistance. Yet Another Path in the Conspiracy.
Diego Rambova will lead us on an exercise in fragmentary mapping through a range of contemporary performative practices which are presented as a kind of common ground between new age and queer politics, revealing how, both for the artists who propose them but also in their own right, the confluence is a powerful site of agency, resistance and transcendence. Represented by artists of different ages and from different origins around the world from the seventies onwards, they appear under many different guises. But the truth is that they all respond—as we shall see—to the same “conspiracy”.

7 NOVEMBER
Performance Lecture for Flying
Is it possible to fly? We all know that you can, but … What happens when you realise that you can fly on your own? This lecture explores the irrational desire to fly and its materialisation in artistic creation, in manifold studies and calculations, prior sketches in flight books, failed attempts and disappointments. And also the involvement of the public. Flight artefacts built from a sculptural gaze and attempts to fly as performance art.

We will take a look at, among others, the projects created by Olga Diego since 2003, when she managed to take to flight on the beach of Carabassí in Alicante, as well as other flights with cameras in the Western Sahara and in Salamanca, or more interactive projects like the one developed by the University of California in 2017.

14 NOVEMBER
Just as Up is Down, Down is Up
In this lecture Marian Garrido has devised a walkthrough of the symbolic dimensions of lost forms of knowledge and the narrative constructed through the bonds between art and magic or alchemy. Is there really any difference between an extract from The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge, in which Carlos Castaneda learns to fly guided by the expert hands of a shaman, and the experiences related by Terence McKenna or Douglas Rushkoff in Cyberia in a framework of comparison with online culture; virtual realities, flight simulators, videogames or the visual rendering of almost vaporous omniscience in Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void and neo-touristic journeys in Google Earth?

21 NOVEMBER
Angels of Anarchy. Modern Shamans, Artists of the Invisible
Servando Rocha reveals to us a secret tradition that unites art and magic through the masked figure, both in popular culture as well as in movements like Dada or Surrealism which were fascinated by the primitive, the mask, the world of spirits and the unknown. The intervention includes a Cabinet of Curiosities of the world of secret societies and masking as a tactic but also as transformative potential.

28 NOVEMBER
From Spell to Spell, from (Magical) Gesture to Gesture
Ana Contreras invites us to a performative lecture which will uncover the ways in which bonds between feminism and witchcraft have been woven over time, from the medieval period to postmodernism. It will take us on a secret journey through its appearances and persecutions from which we will be able to extract lessons about its dangers and its powers. A witches coven that discloses the importance of occult practices and performative tactics, as well as their conscious and unconscious use in contemporary art.

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
