  • Obskené

    Obskené is a company devoted to exploring the different disciplines that form the performing arts, one that rejects that text, actor or director alone should reign supreme but rather understanding that teamwork must be central to their endeavours. The name Obskené alludes to the word “obscene”, whose Greek root means “off” (ob-) stage (-skene). In short, the company seeks to show on stage what was formerly hidden behind the rear curtain. All this, in search of art that is “obscene”, shameless and contemporary.

    Didógenes' Arxiu sobre la privacitat pública [Archive on Public Privacy] is a work that lays bare our lack of awareness about the little privacy that exists in the virtual world today. Since we do not note the weight of an object or physical document in our hand, we act as if it did not exist and therefore we need not worry about its content, even if it is highly personal. But what if someone were to devote themselves to compiling the personal documents that we leave lying around in a virtual world whose dimensions we still fail to realise?

  • SomosNosotros

    SomosNosotros consists of the visual artists Begonya Garcia and Alfonso Fernández. They conduct their artistic practice with a combination of performance, video, textuality and action. From a contextual starting point they develop discourses based on hegemonic thinking. Taking a critical stance, they set out to demonstrate very explicitly the behaviour generated in contemporary society, calling on the spectator to act ridiculously, absurdly or incoherently. The use of ingenuous methodologies serves as a basis for their discourse in creating a horizontal relationship with a spectator who is not too familiar with art, as they want him to be symbolically and/or physically involved in their work.
