Instead of being presented with stereotypes by age, sex, color, class, or religion, children must have the opportunity to learn that within each range, some people are loathsome and some are delightful. Margaret Mead

Description

It is a research project whose main objective is the analysis of social realities through specific themes. Working formats are transversal, dynamic and with participatory methodologies adapted to the venues and host countries of the proposals. In each edition, lines develop critical thinking and experimental formats created ad-hoc for the project.

is this Spain? began in 2009 with a first edition theme [stereotypes] a reflection on the current Spanish identity built on a stereotypical image of gipsy Spain. Through artists working with critical discourses developed from a political point of view, ironic and burlesque turns off the bias assigned to Spain and society. Amending the reductionist view that is homogeneous in contemporary Spanish, showing the history of a society enjoying a recent cultural and social development well recognised. Intro Ian Gibson, Irish-Hispanic.
