This seminar, organized as part of the exhibition “Picasso au cœur des ténèbres (1939-1945)” (Musée de Grenoble), will focus on Picasso’s production through the prism of his relations with anti-fascist networks, as well as on the dialogues between a culture of resistance and the visual production of the Spanish artist.
This book is the result of the homonymous project in which Marta Echaves, Antonio Gómez Villar and María Ruido have been working since 2017, gathering a proposal launched by the direction of La Virreina Centre de la Imatge.
The book Working Dead. Scenarios del Postrabajo will be presented at La Virreina (Barcelona) on 24 October at 7:00 pm. Edited by Marta Echaves, Antonio Gómez Villar and María Ruido, the book proposes to penetrate into the variable geographies of the new composition of work.
Visual artist and researcher María Ruido presents the lecture “The Imperative Eye. Some notes for thinking about colonialism(s) today: global division of labour and visual hegemonies” in the seminar – Images and geopolitics. Thought and artistic practices around the idea of the border.
The conference “Une généalogie des révoltées du surréalisme à l’Internationale Situationniste, 1920-1978” of Fabrice Flauhutez is organized as part of the seminar Cultures Visuelles Militantes.

The video recordings of the international symposium “Transnational solidarity and visual culture: resistance and revolutionary memories from WWII to the Cold War” (Université Grenoble Alpes, 24-25 June 2019) are now available in our Multimedia section.
The workshop was conceived as a space in which to promote and plan the work of researchers in the framework of the project MoDe(s) 2. One of the main objectives of the project is to draw up a glossary of concepts that allow us to understand the cultural tensions that are going through the Cold War and that continue to reverberate in contemporary times.
Workshop – Critical imaginaries and expanded semantic fields from the Cold War to contemporaneity #2
Planned for 18 and 19 July at the Complutense University of Madrid, this research workshop is intended as a space for work and dialogue between the members of the MoDe(s)2 project. It is open to the public (excepted the 19th afternoon session).
The international conference was intended to further the cartographic reconstruction of regional and internationalist ties that were forged by the nonaligned culture of the period running from the end of the second world conflict to the fall of the Berlin Wall.
