Jun 1 2021Performative Lecture (Remote)Yup, Modern SensibilityParatext #54 ‚Äď Monthly programme of presentations by the artists residents in Hangar.HangarBarcelona, SpainYup, modern sensibility is a tiny 76-page manual that will hopefully help you navigate any IKEA store. The title was taken from IKEA‚Äôs own 2019 annual catalog and is far from being a closed statement: it actually questions what IKEA could possibly mean by ‚Äúmodern sensibility‚ÄĚ or if there‚Äôs any sensibility left at all in a time when we all probably own the same set of chairs that matches our table inside a space we like to call home.

CinezetaCinetecaMadrid, SpainThe screening took place as part of a session dedicated to the notions of Neighborhoods & Territoriality.
The program showed a selection of works that somehow revisit the way we redefine certain areas and limits that we usually take for granted. It proposes a series of approaches that strive to seek estrangement in what it has already been delimited. The screening includes works by Anri Sala, Deborah Stratman, and √ďscar P√©rez.

About the exhibition:
"DO THE 90s FIT IN A MAGAZINE? The students of the itinerary of theory and art criticism of the Master of History of Contemporary Art and Visual Culture (UAM-UCM) present Dissenting routes, common resistances, the fourth issue of the ACTA magazine. ACTA 4 reflects on the validity of the actions and concerns that marked the alternative scene of the 90s: realities that shape the social movements that grow and are reinterpreted in our day as engines of current cultural demands. ACTA 4 is definitely a project of dissident routes, of common resistance. The magazine arises in parallel to the exhibition project Playful-political resistance in the Madrid of the 90s."

Apr 2019Solo/Focus ScreeningMagdalena Orellana - Complete filmography Experimentales del Sur:
Sólo he tirado un plato contra la pared para que usted se diese la vuelta
Curated by AMEE
Cine Estudio, C√≠rculo de Bellas ArtesMadrid, Espa√ĪaMagdalena Orellana's short films program as part of Experimentales del Sur, a series of screenings curated by V√≠ctor Aguado Machuca in collaboration with AMEE and Cine Estudio-C√≠rculo de Bellas Artes.
Experimentales del Sur is dedicated to experimental practices carried out by artists from supposedly peripheral countries under dynamic dispersion and fragmentation of hegemonic cultural models.
"This screening shows a selection of the audiovisual work of Magdalena Orellana. It contains a series of documentary short films made between 2017 and 2018, whose creative principle consists in provoking a certain situation that serves as a pretext to attract the attention of "the others" and thus objectifies their performance. In this selection - which was followed by a colloquium with the author - there is primary attention to certain scenes of naivety and ridiculous, produced by the presence of locally known urban characters, or that occur when certain ascetic and ecstatic rituals are frustrated by the contemporary propensity to document any phenomenon."

En red 10¬ļ Simposio de arte sonoro y m√ļsica electroac√ļstica
En Red 10¬ļ - 10th Symposium of sound art and electroacoustic music
MediaLab PradoMadrid, SpainCurated by AMEE. The 10th edition of the symposium "En Red" will be dedicated to reflection on the different uses and conceptions of the voice in poetry, film and music from an experimental perspective, which suggests questions such as: what is the link between sound and meaning? What relationship can be established between the phonetic component of the voice and the semantic dimension of language? Who establishes all these relationships? What other normativity is derived from a primarily phonetic use?
The simposium also included the work of David L√≥pez de Mota-Acevedo, Mar√≠a Salgado, Cristina Parapar, Ni√Īo de Elche & Miguel √Ālvarez-Fern√°ndez.

Art House Zinema - BilbaoArteBilbao, SpainThe program was part of the XXV Punto de Encuentro - Festival of sound arts and electroacoustic music, organized by AMEE, with the support of the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM).

The program included films by Magdalena Orellana, Javier Aguirre, Sandra Cuesta Aizkorbe, and Alberto Cabrera Bernal.

NIW is a program born out of the necessity of creating new spaces for the auto-distribution of works that navigate new ways of making and thinking about cinema within the already known channels of production and distribution. On this 1st edition, we included eight short films from independent Spanish & Latin American filmmakers based in Spain that work around the notions of 'cameraless' cinema, small productions, daily cellphone footage, Ted talks, night, debris...
In the end: a journey back to the deep internal generational guts of Spain.
