SUMMARY

EDITORIAL

Making an Art and Culture magazine was a dream that I started several years ago. Some of the articles and interviews that we show today are part of that initial project. The objective has not changed: to create an alternative medium to the mainstream, to official art, to make room for all artistic disciplines and artists who resist submitting to the single and totalitarian vision of postmodernism. And so, give space to the art that the hegemonic power keeps off the radar and marginalized from traditional artistic circuits.

Who Destroys and Why?

HERITAGE, CITY AND QUALITY OF LIFE

A social network user said it a few days ago: “What we had in Balmaceda Park. What we have today. We need to rebuild and for that we must eradicate violence without a goal. And no, it's not factual. It is civilization against barbarism. Bring the city back to life”. The photo that accompanied his post was quite eloquent.

It is not just about destroying statues and defacing monuments. What we have seen is a direct attack on the city and what it represents. It is the city that is in danger. I am not referring to a particular city, but
than to his idea as a step towards civilization.

The 8M and The Performance

EXALTATION OR  DENIGRATION OF THE FEMININE?

Dancing is one of humanity's oldest forms of expression. It is not unreasonable to trace the origin of dance to the moment in which primitive man began to use the body to express his connection with the transcendent dimension of existence. The transmission of a particular mood or even a message through gestures, gestures and intentional movements is something that the so-called "performance art" borrows from dance. But this form of expression, which came into vogue in the 1960s and 1970s, obeys very different premises, spuriously claiming for itself the title of "art" by combining elements of genuine artistic disciplines, as well as of dance and music, such as singing, theater and plastic arts.

Companies can be humanistic and profitable.

A new vision of CSR is urgently needed:

According to Alvira & Llano (1992), neither business ethics nor support for the so-called "world of culture" are the sought-after humanism. Neither does it consist of creating a “Personnel Management” or “Human Resources”. The work that is carried out in these springs inside the company is extraordinary, but it is not enough. For these authors, humanism simply consists of taking the human being seriously, which can only be done in two ways, which far from being exclusive, are complementary. One is to consider man as absolute. The other, consider it as a whole.

This is how Alvira (1989) asserts that in order to support Western man from the void in which he finds himself, one should have a conception of the human being that goes far beyond charitable works or patronage activities or donations to the arts or culture, but what:

REPORTAGE

A decade liberating art

by Fernando Vicuna

THE MEAM

    T he Horizon 2020 Spanish Tourism Plan placed cultural tourism as a booming typology. According to this same study, in 2006, 10% of tourists who visited Spain did so for cultural reasons. An obligatory destination for tourists is Barcelona. It is not for less that for the City Council of the Catalan city, culture is a backbone of the city's offer and it is committed to a strategy in which culture is positioned as a differentiating and quality element. However, there are dissenting voices against this topic of city planning and culture.

For Tomás Paredes, a prominent member of AICA, the Spanish Association of Art Critics, the art world in Barcelona is numb, inert. “In the best of cases, he is crouched, asleep, to wake up immediately or after a long recovery. The institutions - MACBA, Santa Mónica, Fundación Miró, Born CCM, CCCB, MNAC - disoriented, afraid of not being trendy, oblivious to their function, without visitors. The MACBA thing is devastating, why do they want more space if they don't activate the one they already have?

    Impressive things can be done with few means”, says the painter Javier Arizabalo (56). The artist, born in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France, but based in Irún, in the north of Spain, confirms this phrase daily in his work, where he manages to create masterful works with just a few brushes. "Two thicknesses for the usual work, one to stain the painting, one for details, another to soften the brushstrokes, and a brush in the case of large surfaces," he explains...

Although he studied Fine Arts, he initially dedicated himself to working as a graphic designer, until 15 years ago he decided to free himself from the stress that his working life had at the time, and returned to painting, an activity that has allowed him, as he says, to be more master of himself and that forces him to immerse himself in a state of concentration such that a feeling of peace reaches him.

What is art? I

Ancla 6

It is a difficult answer, not because it cannot be answered, if it can, even intuitively and naturally; but because in this last time, we are full of conceptual definitions, there is an overabundance of them, many contradictory as in so many planes, which end up nullifying the very meaning of what is meant by a definition, and the logical rules for it to be such . The first attempt to delve into What is art, we come across something like this, which brings us the "encyclopedia" Wikipedia:

 

“The definition of art is open, subjective and debatable. There is no unanimous agreement among historians, philosophers or artists. Its function can vary from the most practical to the most ornamental, it can have a religious or simply aesthetic content, it can be long-lasting or ephemeral"...
