from Monday to Friday: 10:00 – 14:00 / 16:00 – 20:30 + Saturday: 10:00 – 14:00 / 16:30 – 20:00

Conscious looks is a photography project intended to prompt critical reflection on our present model of development –neo-liberal, patriarch, globalised– and how with this model we consciously and unconsciously contribute to perpetrating a world where market rules, money and greed prevail over what really matters: people, life, the environment and other indispensable values.

Photographs by Fernando Moleres. With the collaboration of Sergi Cámara and Nora Arroita Gómez.

WE ARE ALL ONE WOMAN 

mujerAiete C. C. / March 4 – April 27
from Tuesday to Friday: 16:00 – 20:30 + Saturday: 10:00 – 14:00 / 16:30 – 20:00 + Sunday: 10:00 – 14:00

Through 37 portraits, graphic reporter Francisco Magallón endeavours to put faces to the reality of thousands of women in different parts of the world who every day face different situations of discrimination, exclusion, violence and persecution on the harsh road to survival. As an example, 80% of the more than 45 million refugee and displaced people worldwide are women and children.

No matter what the historical moment, geographical location or attributed roles, behind the scenes, and despite unequal opportunities, women have always represented an essential pillar in sustaining the family, transmitting values, the economy, education and health.

This exhibition by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) puts faces to those women as a contribution to reducing the invisibility of the survivors, raising awareness and conscience in the population in order to achieve the necessary changes on the way to effective equality. Gender equality is a job for all men and women.

PHotoEspaña OjodePez Human Values Award 2013

vidasFNAC / April 1 – June 10
from Monday to Saturday: 10:00 – 22:00

As it does every year, FNAC Spain runs a travelling exhibition of a selection of photographs by the winners and finalists of this award organised by the PHotoEspaña festival and the documentary photography magazine OjodePez. The winning series of its last edition, Vidas recicladas, by Manuel Zamora (Murcia, 1970) is an ongoing work on the phenomenon of metal and cardboard collection presently taking place in many cities as a result of the economic crisis. People who worked until recently in sectors such as agriculture or construction have found themselves faced with no other option than to collect consumer waste in the streets.
