International exhibition of appliques (three-dimensional textiles) where women from all over the world narrate their experiences in contexts of conflict and the violation of human rights using household materials such as thread, needles and pieces of fabric. These are “sewn voices” which are, very definitely, a contribution to memory and justice.

Our fight in Africa

w-amar no es un delitoCentral Library (Alderdi Eder)
April 5th-22nd

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

The photographic exhibition Loving is not a crime. Our fight in Africa, produced by Amnesty International, consists of 27 photographs shedding light on people who lead the way in the fight against homophobia and transphobia in five African countries: Kenya, South Africa, Cameroon, Zambia and Uganda.

This exhibition makes no intention to portray the homophobic and transphobic voices, discourses and actors who stoke violence, discrimination and violation of the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexual people (LGBTI). Quite the contrary, it is an exhibition with a “positive focus”, which portrays the faces and bodies of all people who go as far as to give up their lives in the untiring fight to obtain their rights and those of the LGBTI communities in their respective countries.

The aim is no other than to demonstrate how activists and anonymous people struggle and fight against hatred every day in Africa. This exhibition gives light and colour to the everyday struggle against intolerance and pays tribute to two people who gave up their lives to defend the fact that loving is not a crime: Noxolo Nogwaza and Jean-Claude Roger Mbédé.

April 8th – July 3rd

from Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 – 20:00

Tuiza is the haima tent created by the Sevillian artist Federico Guzmán together with the women from the refugee camps in Boujdour. Tuiza, in Hassaniya, is an expression of solidarity among women, of collective work. And this is the spirit that has been woven into the project Between sands, an initiative of the San Sebastian 2016 Foundation and San Telmo Museum with the complicity of diverse groups and agents.

Between sands takes as its starting point the situation of the Sahrawi people, to promote reflection on international cooperation, the plundering of natural resources, human rights and the role of women in peace building. This is carried out through meetings and different art forms such as film, music and the visual arts, as a means of denouncing and of resistance.
