An exhibition composed of photographs and narrations endeavouring to recover the points of view of Basque women in the historical content of the Coup d’état, the war and the Franco dictatorship.

Among other questions, it includes narrations and experiences related to the battlefield, exile, torture, prison, repression and survival strategies, also looking at activism and organised approaches to social structure. But always, as said, from the angle of women.

Our aim with this exhibition is to transmit the decisive part played by women in a time of agitation, change and injustice.

Exhibition produced by Mauro Saravia and Intxorta 1937 Kultur Elkartea. With the collaboration of Gipuzkoako Foru Aldundia.

There is talk of peace in Colombia. Negotiations, ceasefire, agreements... Hope, finally, at the end of a long road. More than 50 years of armed conflict: 265,000 people dead, 6 million displaced, 45,000 victims of forced disappearance... are only a few of the terrible figures of the confrontation. The immense majority civilians, and almost a half women.

This exhibition brings the lament of those who were killed, tortured, suffered sexual violence, kidnapping, of those who were forced to take up arms against their will...

And now we hear the word peace. It is the best opportunity in more than a decade to end the hostilities. But peace continues to behave elusively without truth, justice, repair and the respect for human rights. Peace cannot be built on impunity. Those responsible must pay for all of the horrendous crimes hidden beneath the Colombian conflict.

Cuban Muslims, Tropical Faith (Joan Alvado)

March 16 – April 25 / from Monday to Satudary: 10:00 – 21:30

Cuba is one of the last countries in the world to have seen the introduction of Islam. While it has gone unnoticed, the number of inhabitants converting to the religion has risen constantly in recent years. This growth is related to the current opening up of Cuba, bringing with it a greater tolerance of religions. With a population now standing at some 3,000, Muslims are to be found not only in several districts of Havana, but also in many other provinces such as Camagüey, Santiago and Varadero. How can a Muslim community take shape at the heart of a Caribbean island governed by the socialist system?

The Cuban Muslims, Tropical Faith project makes no attempt to find closed answers, but to raise key points for reflection. On taking a closer look at one of the most unusual Muslim communities in the world, it generates an innovative approach to Cuba and Islam. Its aim is to break down visual stereotypes, questioning subjects such as identity, faith and traditions

 March 4 – May 21 / from Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 – 20:00

13 women artists (from Afghanistan, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Iran, Lebanon, Morocco and Palestine) depict destroyed, impoverished landscapes from 2000 until today. They reflect lands that have been seized, property plundered and places of bloodspill through their sculptures, videos and photographs...

The exhibition, uniting the work of thirteen women artists, analyses and reflects on latent, unsolved crises from contemporary creation. Its curator, Piedad Solans, weaves a narration on conflicts, trenches and wounds, to understand them better and decode them.

28 works by thirteen artists including sculptures, installations, videos, photographs, books and graphic novels. The exhibition is complemented with documentation by artists related to its theme.
