Workshop: Frames of a tension. ‘Asphyxiation for torsion’.

Miriam Isasi

We worked on the body, its limits and possibilities having classic sculptures as the starting point.

The balance axes and the static movement.

Tension of the ephemeral,

emancipation of the limits as an expanded term.

Work with the students of the National School of Circus (ENA) has been interesting from a plastic view point.

Prepared bodies for contortion and acrobatics.



Workshop. Sara Munguía

26/5/2017

Sara, on her workshop with students:

I asked the children to imagine the lives of Cubans in the future. They had to imagine what kind of decorative motives they will use in their clothes, tools and other customizations like tattoos, and I asked them to draw them in paper, keeping in mind that they could be figurative, abstract and symbolic representations. At last, they had to paint them on each other's arms and face. The idea was that they were aware of the importance of ornament and motives that they are surrounded by and the connection with their lives, emotions and way of thinking.

The workshop is a way to work with imaginaries and forms of cultural representation and different times, which joins the work presented in Artista X Artista, that the kids visited afterwards. In this show, there is a video in which historical recreations appear and the kids can discover similarities between their drawings of ornaments and the ones the can see in this scenes of the past.

Workshop. Taxio Ardanaz

Taxio Ardanaz did a workshop for 9 year old students where they draw with charcoal in cardboard. After teaching them the technique, Ardanaz ask them to make a drawing in groups of three or four students, where they started with a individual space in the cardborad that would gradually turn into a collective one. Basically it was about drawing and then erasing to make a new visual result in the same space. They would do it several times, until the different layers where visible. The different topics were: self portrait, something they really liked and would be useful to describe them, an historic event that they would remember, and last what was the Revolution for them. The results was meticulously documented and will be part of an animation exercise that Taxio will be making soon.

After that, and already a tradition in our workshops, the kids visited our headquarters to see the exhibition. The artist explained his work and career, and answer several questions to the students. Moreover, they made their own interpretations of Taxio’s work.

Cristina Garrido Workshop “The museum of the future”

10/12/2015 - 16/12/2015

With their personal memories as a starting point, the children thought spontaniously about the utility that a museum can have. From them came the idea of the museum as a place of memory.

“What would you like to preserve for the future?”. To this question, the kids answered filling with a lot of imagination the spaces left in blank in spaces Cristina drew. Just like that a museum of mermaids was born, another one of stones that will gain value in time, and even one museum of life. The fantasy-natured projects were bend as a catalogue that the kids decided to name “The museum of the future”. A book that keeps something that tomorrow may be important to remember.
