Exhibition “Fake Games. The Collectivized Monument” at the IVAM

Exhibition “Fake Games. The Collectivized Monument” at the IVAM

The director of the Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (IVAM), José Miguel G. Cortés, the curator Miguel Caballero, and the artist, Fernando Sánchez Castillo, will present the exhibition Fake Games to the media. The collectivized monument.

The artist proposes the creation of a collective memorial in gallery 6 of the museum from one of the most iconic photographs of the Spanish Civil War: Death of a militiaman attributed to Robert Capa and Gerda Taro.

The main installation of the sample is a memorial based on the exchange of a small figure of a little plastic soldier, inspired by the famous militiaman photographed by Capa / Taro. Visitors over the age of fifteen – the minimum age for enlisting in the militias – can take a little soldier home in exchange for a reflection on this conflict and its aftermath that will be written on the walls of the gallery.

Exhibition: The little things

Exhibition

The little things. How objects kept a persecuted memory.

Inauguration: December 19, 2019, at 7:00 p.m.

UNED-Madrid, Escuela Pías (Calle Tribulete, 14)

 

A sample of some of the thousands of objects, documents, letters or photographs collected during more than ten years of research. Small things that may seem insignificant but that assume the exact way in which memory could materialize. A memory persecuted and silenced by Francoism, who had to look on the banks of society for a place to survive.

Franco’s repression on the railway

Franco’s repression on the railway

November 28, 2019

Madrid Railway Museum

 

This Railway Historical Memory Day has the purpose of deepening the historical knowledge of what Franco’s repression on the railway meant.

That is why it has brought together a group of accredited researchers with a double purpose. On the one hand, acrisolar the understanding of all repressive chapters. And, on the other, to speak about the analytical meaning and the social repercussion that the memoralist movement has generated during these last years. The only way to achieve these purposes is to organize a day that brings together different knowledge disciplines and different approaches. It is intended both to confirm paradigms and to open new lines of interpretation.

Miriam Saqqa will give the lecture: Where? Rail mass grave and exile.
