[:es]RECUPERO ESTAS PALABRAS DE CATHERINE DAVID DE LA DOCUMENTA X DE 1997 PORQUE CREO QUE SON MUY ÚTILES PARA COMPRENDER MUCHAS DERIVAS. CUANDO SE QUIEREN HACER COSAS SE PUEDEN HACER MUCHAS COSAS

Introduction by Catherine David in the Short Guide

Finally, in the framework of the »100 Days – 100 Guests« program we have invited artists and cultural figures from the world over -architects, urbanists, economists, philosophers, scientists, writers, filmmakers, stage directors, musicians- to Kassel in order to debate, according to their fields of specialization and their orders of urgency, the great ethical and aesthetic questions of the century’s close: the urban realm, territory, identity, new forms of citizenship, the national social state and its aftermath, racism and the state, the globalization of markets and national policy, universalism and culturalism, poetics and politics. These daily interventions will take place in the auditorium of the documenta Halle, specially configured as a space of information and debate; they will be typed out and transmitted over the Internet, recorded on cassettes made available to the public by Bund Media, and broadcast daily in abridged form by Arte, in collaboration with HR, WDR, SWF, and the Goethe-Institut.

Throughout the »100 Days« there will also be screenings of the seven films produced by documenta, Sony, and several TV channels, and a three-night theatrical marathon presenting the »sketches« proposed by ten directors who have been invited to explore the minimal conditions of a contemporary dramatic situation.

Other artists´ projects circulate in Kassel and far beyond: images posted on the billboard spaces of Deutsche Staedte-Reklame and radio plays produced and broadcast by Hessischer Rundfunk. In conclusion, I would like to thank all the partners who accompanied us with great confidence and generosity during the often difficult work of preparation. And of course, I would like to extend my warmest thanks to all the participants in documenta X, who each in their own way have helped make this project lively, diverse, and exciting for everyone.

About The Author

Gloria G.

Nací en Madrid. Me fui y regresé. Aprendí mucho en el camino. He estudiado 3 años de empresariales, 5 de Bellas Artes, 1 de Master, 2 de CAP, una oposición de profesora y un doctorado. Ahora soy doctora por la UPV y trabajo como investigadora en el grupo PRACTICEMAD, Prácticas emergentes en el Nuevo Madrid, del Grupo de Estudio Urbanos, GEU de la UNED. Entrevisto a artistas y agentes varios de la escena del arte madrileño, pero, paradójicamente, me paso el día en Tabacalera, en el CSA autogestionado y desde allí intento comprender lo incomprensible, como preservar la heroicidad perdida de la condición de artista en tiempos de branding…. sinceramente, creo que es irrecuperable, pero si obvio el branding, a lo mejor y todo aun quedan unos tantos héroes. A lo mejor.
