There is a desert
immense
at the back of our
retinas
we see nothing
nothing
unless it is
his disguise
the distant confused whisper
in an unknown language

It has happened to us all. That feeling, though short-lived, is very beautiful: you are with your friends and you play a song that you love, you read an excerpt from one of your favourite books, or you want to share a photograph that has meant something to you for many years. You feel that desire to share the delight of an obsession, to share its magnetism.

This project arose from exploring an obsession that morphed over time and that many people throughout history have experienced. We are referring to invisibility. Where does it come from? How can we become invisible, manage to vanish – dissolve – to not be seen or detected?

This will be the starting point from which, together, we will explore different notions that, precisely, do not fit purely within the physical realm. Voice, a whisper, breath. Their rhythms. Magic and escapism. Leaping into the unknown. Camouflaging ourselves in the night. Accepting the risk of listening to our intuitions. Other ways of being close, although these – apparently – are invisible.

At the beginning of 2020 we will be opening the exhibition Absurd Humour: A Constellation of Folly in Spain and, similarly to other occasions, we have invited an artist to prepare what we call a Positioned Visit. This time Alba Rihe has created an audio-guide that will take us on a trip through the exhibition, with what could be considered a soundtrack which is a kind of pastiche, a chimera of voices, a word whispered in your ear that caresses the eardrum and which we hope will make us break out in hysterical laughter in the exhibition hall.

The audio-guides are available free of charge at the museum reception desk during the course of the exhibition. You can also listen the audio on Soundcloud or download in your devices here:

This year we wish to see and to make film collectively and, with this purpose in mind, we have invited Chus Domínguez to design a workshop. Focused mainly on practice, it will be a space aimed at teachers and educators who want to use audiovisuals to question their workspace and to find new forms of images and sounds in the classroom. To listen and look again like never before.

Chus Domínguez is an audiovisual creator specialized in documentary film. Together with the Department of Education and Cultural Action at MUSAC (Museum of Contemporary Art of Castile and Leon), he has set up LAAV (Laboratory of Experimental Audiovisual Anthropology) to develop a range of collaborative research-creative projects. He is also a member of the experimental action group Orquestina de Pigmeos and is a lecturer in the Documentary Film degree course at ECAM film school.

Aimed at teachers and other people interested in education.

In a few thousand years a future archaeological excavation will discover what were the limits of the city of Móstoles in 2020 and there they will find, on the site of the Children’s Home, bits of ceramic which, when pieced together, will create objects with no recognizable use purpose. The experts will try to guess where they came from, as they are neither utilitarian or decorative objects. The forms would suggest some kind of mysterious practice closer to the rituals and customs of the former inhabitants of this place.

During this school year, together with the inhabitants of the Children’s Home, we will make loads of extensible, ephemeral, detachable or permanent attachments, traces and remains for the future, sounds that will fill the space and slowly become echoes and then memories. We will create a set of sculptural pieces, hybrids between musical instruments and masks, monstrous fixtures that will be the memory of experiences that took place in this house over the course of these months.

We want to invent our own biography, who we want to be together and how we want to be remembered.

The under-21 team is a group of young people between the ages of sixteen and twenty-one who are interested in culture, art and community life. It focuses on utopian art practices that propose experimental forms of organisation, dissident attitudes and collective processes of creation. For this new school year, we will be dreaming about the idea of travelling to other places and escaping to the mountain, which is why the team will become a mountaineering group to investigate climbing as creative practice. We will continue generating spaces where we can create, share and waste time.

At the moment, the members of the Sub21 team are: Diego Alonso, Alicia Arévalo Gallego, Cristina Bermúdez Garrido, Paula Díaz Cano, Miriam Domínguez García, Sandra Esteban López, Nadia Ettahri, Claudia Fernández Concepción, Marina Lillo García, Irene Lloret Miguel, Elisa Lozano Triviño, Fabiana Marques Abatemarco, Richard Moreno Campechano, Marina Olympia Rodriguez Ibáñez, Rosario O'Kelly, Hugo P, Daniel Perera García, Iris Perpiñá Fabra, Rubén Reyes Carrasco, Tamara Serrano Cabello and Marina Viñarás Germano.

Put your body in a place.

Move it, shake it, jiggle it. 

Put it to the test. 

Subject it to and free it from a tempo and a rhythm.

Stress it, push it, tire it.

Listen to how your body sounds now.

What are our capacities for listening? Can we think of the body and treat it like a sound body? What sounds do we associate with our body or with the actions it performs and what is the meaning it imposes on them? How does the body sound?

During the month of September, we have invited the artist Sandra Gómez to propose a workshop in which we will use the workspace as a space of resonance, and as an instrument that resonates. And we will do the same with the body: it will be both the instrument that resonates as well as the space of resonance. Pat, rub, brush, caress...

The workshop will focus on research and experimentation with the body’s sonic capacity as well as how we perceive this sonic quality and how it affects the body.

One day you get a message with a location. This location is the hiding place of a letter that somebody has written to you. This somebody, whose identity you don’t know, proposes an exclusive sound experience for you, a musical gift.
 

Can you make music by writing words? Hiding Place is a proposal to work with sound without making music, it is an unidentified action that only you and I know, a meeting without meeting.
 

Individually, we will write a letter for someone we don’t know, proposing a sound experience. We will then hide the letter somewhere in the city so that a person who is communicated the location can pick it up. But, bear in mind that another person might find the letter first. And, of course, you will also receive your letter in a hiding place.

A group of teachers and people interested in education who are also fascinated by audiovisuals decided to look out the window together. This is where we wanted to start, looking with fresh eyes, listening with attention to little things and touching film with our own hands.
 

This sowed a desire to continue the project into this school year. We want to share our educational practices, to experiment jointly so that we can then propose something different to our students, to create in order to continue learning.
 

If you are interested in audiovisuals and education, we encourage you to join our group which will meet monthly to discuss shared processes.

Perhaps these are propitious times for proposals. If, as we have seen, change is possible, perhaps the time has come to also dismantle the sex-generic normalization processes. Ask ourselves what we learned without realizing it but also what we teach without realizing it. In this workshop for teachers of kindergarten, primary, secondary, training cycles, university and non-regulated education we are going to propose multiplying imaginary by activating the look, movement, gestures and doing.

A box of fanzines published by women, a shelf of books classified by weight or colour, an envelope with tiny publications... A library can be almost anything.
 

Last year, along with Sonia and Andrea, the librarians at CA2M, we started a collaborative project to create an archive of art publications with art students at IES Europa secondary school and to investigate the possibilities for self-publishing. The project consisted in moving the discarded holdings from the CA2M library. Art students took the books, catalogues and fanzines to their classes. Once there, we started a process to construct the shelving for the library and to imagine other possible ways of activating it. However, the project was cut short by the confinement imposed because of COVID-19.
 

This year we propose picking up the project where we left off. To create a strange and unsuspected library based on these and other holdings. Together with the art students, we will rethink what a collective archive actually means and we will question the logic of a library in order to generate a new narrative. The project seeks to develop new possibilities from creativity and resistance, to bring students into closer contact with contemporary creation and to create new bonds of collaboration between departments and institutions.
 

During confinement, we wanted to continue developing this project remotely. To this end, we invited Andrea Galaxina to think of a proposal to send to the students. Taking the form of a tutorial, Andrea prepared this fanzine to think of the creative possibilities of self-publishing.
 

Read Editar con nada. Una pequeña guía práctica (y un poco teórica) para hacer fanzines. (Publish with nothing. A brief practical (and a little theoretical) guide to making fanzines).
