From the small. Summary season 2017-2018

Texts

The 4th season 2017-2018 began with what has probably been the most relevant activity developed by La Posta since its inception, at least as regards its global reach, it is "Alexander Kluge. Gardens of Cooperation "; and it has ended the same, with the world premiere of the montage conceived by Harold Berg "Gordon Matta-Clark, Jacob's Ladder in Documenta 6", made with unpublished material never before shown.

Crossdressing is Resisting

Screening

Being part of a historically excluded group, such as the LGBTI community, allowed me to understand that in the field of the enforceability of rights there is a resource that is continuously plundered and destroyed: the symbolic imaginary; who conquers it, has managed to gain a large part of the ground, thus, art becomes a strategy and the body becomes a tool.

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.


Kluge Miniatures

Screening

As usual in La Posta Foundation, after the celebration of an exhibition focused on the audiovisual, we extend the experience on the web. In this case ―after "Alexander Kluge. Gardens of Cooperation"―, we do it with a work that has not been seen in the cinematographic exhibition but that summarizes very well some of the most outstanding characteristics of the works that were exhibited in it (in 2 programs). This is Vermischte Nachrichten (Miscellanea news), a work of Kluge and Beate Mainka-Jellinghause of 1988


The Art of My Scars (2016)

Screening

Our friend Kay J. Browning, from Devon, UK, we met through Beccy Strong, who participated in the exhibition "neXus. New looks in European documentary photography", he sends us a very good video (the one you can see above)


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).


Extension and Branches

Texts

In just three seasons, the activities of La Posta Foundation have gone from being mainly exhibitions of plastic arts/visual arts, incorporating an important educational and participative content, and, lately, a process of extension and ramifications, As a result of the collaboration with other friendly entities, as well as of the potential of the projects being developed, which unfolded showing aspects that, although implicit, had not developed their full capacity.
