Call for the development of an artistic project: Art and Geology


La Posta Foundation – Image research laboratory, has always paid special attention to artistic projects that put the focus on the territory and the landscape. Sometimes the most immediate territory (the Carmen neighborhood itself) and other times with a broader perspective. Sometimes with a more anthropological content and other times focusing attention on the landscapes.

InsuMisa [disobedient]


On June 29, 2023, in order to commemorate the Stonewall Inn Revolt that took place on June 28, 1969 in New York, and which represents the birth of the LGTBQI+ movement, a participatory choral ceremony in three parts took place at the La Posta Foundation, in Plaza de la Santa Cruz and in the nearby streets in Valencia:

The performance “Voices to the Wind”


Partly making of and partly chronicling the performance “Voices to the Wind” that took place on the opening day of the exhibition “Ecology, the necessary evil”, by Janice Martins Appel and Domingo Mestre (2 Headed Snake), it is the video made by the audiovisual students of the Juan Comenius Education Center in Valencia: Jasmina Iranzo, Edu Morales and Jonathan Barbosa, coordinated by Domingo Arroyas.

The Tree, the Forest and the 2-Headed Snake


Although normally, when there is a video projection, ―in this case "The tree, the forest and the 2-Headed Snake", within the multimedia installation "Ecology: the necessary evil", by Janice Martins Appel and Domingo Mestre―, it is offered after the exhibition in the room through the web, this time we are going to anticipate, because there are some aspects that it is convenient for the public to know beforehand, because they relate all the works on display.

“Jardim de Entropias sob Brahma Grama”


“Entropy Garden under Brahma Grass” The installation “Ecology: the necessary evil” specially designed and executed for the La Posta Foundation space by the artists Janice Martins Appel and Domingo Mestre (Serpiente de 2 Cabezas), with elements built specifically for the occasion and other natural ones as still lifes (in a multimedia context that includes various video projections, transparencies, etc.), it can be visited from May 12 to June 10, 2023 and will serve as the setting for a large program of activities.

Spurensicherung in “Cross-border Motherhood” by Gabriela Rivera Lucero


The first thing that draws attention in the photographs that are exhibited in "Cross-border Motherhood" by Gabriela Rivera Lucero, is that the photographs show the traces of an intervention on them. The artist herself has explained that the negatives were introduced before their development in a liquid in which objects and vegetable plants related to the life experience of the photographed women had been bathed. There is a call to incorporate memories and images that tell us about other things that are beyond the image that is shown, as indications of something that cannot be seen but that can be sensed. With this, Gabriela's work is part of a current of thought and work that seeks to discover the past in the small signs that appear before us, many times without having been summoned.

The Upper Valley of the Río Negro (North-Patagonia) an entropic landscape


The Barda del Desierto Museum, that we have had the honor of presenting at La Posta Foundation, by Andrea Beltramo, is an open-air museum, in which works specially designed for that place are carried out and are influenced by its characteristics, as well as artistic residences and educational activities, it is located in the Alto Valle del Río Negro region, North Patagonia, Argentina. It is located near the place where the Neuquén and Limay rivers converge to give rise to the Negro River. A river that, together with the Colorado, a little further north, constituted for centuries an internal border in the emerging Argentine nation. We are, then, in a border territory, in many ways, and a landscape that shows us, like an open book, Argentina's past.

25 years of Modern Architecture in Valencia (1950-1975). Text complete


Our architectural heritage is an element of cultural identity and of great collective wealth. The study of it must be important for the dissemination, knowledge and enjoyment of future generations. There are many interesting buildings in the city of Valencia that do not have an adequate study. In the same way it happens with a large number of architects, with works of great importance in those years, who do not have their own monograph.
