The March workshop and the pedagogical tradition in the Valencian neighborhood of Carmen

Texts

With the exhibition “Suspended Places. Revitalizing Urban Identities”, an exhibition organized by LABi (Laboratory of thought, creation and diffusion of the image), integrated by a group of students of the Master in Photography, Art and Technique of the Polytechnic University of Valencia, in collaboration with La Posta Foundation, we have the opportunity to see a series of pieces from the March House-workshop in Mare Vella street; along with works by Pau Figueres and Pepa L. Poquet, in a dialogue that comes to focus attention on the impacts and transformations suffered by the city, little attentive to the life forms that inhabit it; because the March workshop suffers the threat of the pickaxe, for the sake of the progress of the city (the opening of a square at that point is intended, in order to be able to contemplate the remains of the Islamic wall of the city).


Staged looks

Texts

During the past year 2018 Vicente Ponce and Miguel Ángel Baixauli have launched, in collaboration with Sonia Martínez and Nuria Enguita, the program "Images on Images. From cinema to photography", a new way of approaching the enjoyment of images, taking as an argument some exhibitions that have taken place at Bombas Gens Art Center, but the power of the device put into action is of such intensity that it has sufficient entity in itself for us to pay attention to it, independently of the exposures to which it was associated.

Emerging workshops and social sculpture

Texts

This spring is dominated in La Posta Foundation by Emerging Workshops [Cyanotype, Color Tune, Psychogeography, ZOMBIE SPACES | SOUTH VALENCIA], all of them coincide in expanding the concept of art ―in some cases the brushes have been literally handed over to the attending public―, and in several of them the public has been taken to the street, to live and reflect on the public space, which had traditionally been considered as the quintessential domain of sculpture.


The art of the territory, in the tradition of the conservation of cultural assets

Texts

It is this concern for the population residing in the territory, which does not appear in the images because it has been or is being displaced, its absence is what marks these landscapes, as well as the taking of the party in favor of its vindication in favor of the conservation of those territories as they were before the interventions that have displaced them.


E.A. Winterstein, Fire Extinguisher / Firefighter E.A. Winterstein (1968), Alexander Kluge

Texts

It happens sometimes when an exhibition is prepared, when selecting works, thinking about them, investigating their lives, restoring them if it is the case, sometimes surprises arise. There is a memorable case among the exhibitions held in Valencia. This is the case of the exhibition that took place in the MuVIM from April 27 to July 16, 2006 "Valencian painting in the Ermitage collection. Centuries XVI-XVII". The well-known Russian museum ceded works of Valencian painters of the Renaissance that it hoards in its collections, and on the occasion of the preparatory works of the exhibition in the MuVIM, which were carried out by the curators of the Valencian museum, it was discovered that some of the works donated for the exposition was false (or let's say that the authorship had been attributed in the wrong way).
