Hospitality in cultural institutions.
We visit the Thyssen Museum.
Friday, May 14, Alberto Gamoneda and the EducaThyssen team welcome us to the museum’s garden to visit some works through different topics of reflection linked to the issues we will be working on throughout the sessions and workshops of the Un Botiquín para mi Ciudad program:
- Madrid, a city of migrochtonous.
- The journey and the arrival.
- Build worlds, bear fruit.
- To be one skin, heal our skin.
- Woman, artist, and migrant, being many realities, here and there.
- Settle down and form a community, the alchemy of cultures.
- Thinking of others, the collective.
- Art in contexts of crisis; art as a complaint.
- Art in life.
- Many lives, many cultures.
- Fall in love with the new.
At home in the Thyssen during the visit carried out with great care by the EducaThyssen colleagues.
We visit the Reina Sofia Museum.
Just a few days later, on Monday, May 24, Gala Crerar and Ana Longoni, accomplices in the process from Museo Situado, welcome us to this space.
“The museum is a space of the commons, a place for all, a precise and quotidian space, an open and questionable archive, a questioned and debated setting, put in crisis, in motion. What are the other institutional constructions that can arise from this notion of the commons?”
“The museum is full of exhibitions, artistic practices, and theoretical discourse around the commons, but how is that dimension of the commons exercised in the most immediate environment?” (Excerpts from an interview with Ana Longoni atwww.eldiario.es)
