Letras y Notas: Spanish radio broadcast by Eva Santamaría

Some time ago, I had the pleasure to be invited by Eva Santamaría to participate in Letras y Notas, her radio broadcast on Arts and Culture: http://letrasynotas.com/?page_id=251 

Letras y Notas is a great experience as Eva offers the artists un great opportunity to share the intimate aspects of their work. She recently launched a new website, which I am happy to share today.

 

Participar en Letras y Notas ha sido vivir una hora y media durante la cual Eva Santamaría me ha devuelto el tiempo. Sin prisas, paso a paso, hemos recorrido mis pinturas. No sé de ningún otro programa que le de tanto tiempo y espacio a un artista para abrir y dar a conocer su mundo, o que le permita explicar tan detenidamente en qué consiste su experiencia creativa.

Hubo un lugar: Personal involvement, creative process and scientific value

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hubo un lugar [there was a place] is an art project and an art research on the potential of the investigation of individual cases to progressively build a collective and composite memory. It starts from a site specific work in Spain, which in turn starts from the testimony of a former Spanish republican refugee.

 

I will focus on the question of the reconciliation between the objective and subjective approaches within an art and research project that embraces testimony, historical research, creative process and personal involvement, and I will envisage potential methods for the purposes of such reconciliation.
