Is an independent channel directed by Iván López Munuera. Present Day is a weird-blurring concept built by a number of troublemaking actors. We don't need TV-Shows to explain the controversies, agonic relationships and manifestos of today, but we want them!!! We want Fuzzy Now Broadcasting TV because revolution will not be televised but it could help us to get organized!!!

The Dark Side of the Party: Video


Sticky Airs. The dark side of the party. SOS 4.8 2015 from ImagenSubliminal on Vimeo.

The Dark Side of the Party.
Curator: Iván López Munuera
project for SOS 4.8 2015.
Parties have a dark side. In the spaces, songs, declarations, associated media and subject constructions that are established in the territories of the festive not all is celebration. Parties can segregate, exlude, passively of actively define those subjects involved in them, and hold representations of power and politics that are effective although seldom entirely visible. It’s a dark side that manifests itself through material devices such as velvet ropes at the entrance of discos or nightclubs; technology or the lack of it that leads to missing out on calls through social media; and finantial, through the monetary disparities that allow (or not) to take part; symbolic, through the clothes and looks that are invoked or that can be a reason for rejection; urban, because of the places where they happen and the territorial pacts they imply; or social, as in the exclusions ingrained in them even if these are not distinctly expressed.
The Dark Side of the Party is conceived as a project that intends to debate, discuss and confront these exclusions, this dark side of the party, through an array of coordinated actions that go from roundtables to performances, conferences and videos or installations, in a privileged scenario to test it all: the SOS 4.8 2015 Festival.

Más América en el nuevo Whitney

Aquí está mi artículo sobre el nuevo Whitney publicado en El Cultural de El Mundo (24 de abril de 2015):



El nuevo Whitney se promueve como más Whitney. Una estrategia vinculada a un contexto global (con casos parecidos, como la ampliación del MoMA) que responde a su propia fundación, privada, cuya financiación depende del dinero aportado por una serie de contribuyentes con unas necesidades concretas: un crecimiento continuo que permita obtener nuevas salas patrocinadas, un simbolismo diferente a través de un edificio construido ex profeso que permita una revalorización del suelo y una ubicación acorde con el turismo contemporáneo (entre las galerías de Chelsea y el High Line, uno de los puntos más concurridos de la ciudad)... Sigue leyendo

Los Ángeles para mitómanos

La casa Chemosphere, de Taschen
Ennis House, de Frank L. Wright, la casa de Blade Runner


Hoy aparece en El Viajero de EL PAÍS mi artículo sobre las casas, interiores y domesticidades de Los Ángeles, de Tom of Finland a los Eames pasando por las Eco-Villas:

La historia de Los Ángeles está ligada a la de sus espacios domésticos. Hogares, hoteles, apartamentos y comunidades que han aparecido en novelas, películas, canciones, revistas de cotilleos, obras de arte y libros de arquitectura, pasando a formar parte del imaginario colectivo (para conocer cómo Los Ángeles en su conjunto ha sido retratada en el cine, véase el extraordinario documental o vídeo-ensayo Los Angeles plays itself, de Thom Andersen). Desde comienzos del siglo XX, cuando las estrellas de cine empezaron a poblar las laderas de la ciudad, sus casas han sido visitadas por toursde fans en busca de los actores y su leyenda. Hogares que han servido de territorio de experimentación para los arquitectos de la modernidad, como Wright, Neutra o Schindler; escenarios de masacres, como la infame casa de Sharon Tate y Roman Polanski (en el 10050 de Cielo Drive), donde la actriz, embarazada, fue asesinada junto a otras cuatro personas por Charles Manson y su banda; o de largas tardes en perpetuo verano, como las piscinas de David Hockney (que vivió en Nichols Canyons hasta los años ochenta). Laboratorios de lo doméstico, visitables en su mayor parte, que aún perduran con todo su potencial. Aquí van algunas de ellas...
