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.

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.

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.

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

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.
