EL D_EFECTE BARROC (The Baroque [D]effect) +info
A course by Jorge Luis Marzo

The seminar will take as its starting point the exhibition commissioned from Jorge Luís Marzo and Teresa Badia, "El D_Efecte Barroc, politics of the Hispanic image", produced by and exhibited at the CCCB, Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, from November 2010 through to February 2011. Using the documentary archive prepared for the exhibition, the seminar will attempt an analysis of Hispanicity as a common and homogeneous frame between Spain and Latin America. The "baroque" narrative will be proposed as a sample of the politico-cultural strategies which have helped to bring about over the course of time an official homogenising narrative, the Hispanic myth, and of artists' responsibility in the myth's durability. The seminar will offer investigative tools to allow for the enhancement of discursive lines by means of constant contribution of points of view and parallel experiences.

INTRODUCTION

The seminar will take as its starting point the exhibition commissioned from Jorge Luís Marzo and Teresa Badia, "El D_Efecte Barroc, politics of the Hispanic image", produced by and exhibited at the CCCB, Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, from November 2010 through to February 2011. Using the documentary archive prepared for the exhibition, the seminar will attempt an analysis of Hispanicity as a common and homogeneous frame between Spain and Latin America. The "baroque" narrative will be proposed as a sample of the politico-cultural strategies which have helped to bring about over the course of time an official homogenising narrative, the Hispanic myth, and of artists' responsibility in the myth's durability. The seminar will offer investigative tools to allow for the enhancement of discursive lines by means of constant contribution of points of view and parallel experiences.

OBJECTIVES

• To deconstruct the relationship between the Hispanic Myth and its primary survival strategy: The baroque. Baroque, as a model of cultural policy.
• To reflect upon the the relationship between art and cultural policies.
• Reflection, participation and diffusion.

COURSE CONTENT

• Presentation of the seminar, lines of research and mechanisms of participation.
• The brand: Culture and identity. How is a stereotype constructed? National brands end up determined by the inheritance of permanently reinforced identifying myths, difficult to unravel. Identifying myths reveal themselves more and more like ancient ruins, at the same time generating enormous amounts of cash.
• The function of images. Images have been, and remain, vehicles for social, economic, political and cultural strategies, beyond their formal(ist) interpretation in the artistic sphere. The so-called "baroque style", for example, apart from the fact that it is not an historic style, has been a form of shaping a teaching of history, a political memory.
What responsibility must artists bear in the dissemination of official myths?
• The politics of the image. Public cultural policies have a clear responsibility in the management of official resources regarding the image: art has been the umbilical cord connecting a nation and its people to the past. How does this affect a country's productive reality? Why has access to culture become a substitute for access to politics?

COURSE ADDRESSED TO

Especially of interest to students and professionals in journalism, audiovisual communication, art history, design, artistic practice, cultural management, tourist and heritage management and promotion. Also open to anyone with little or no professional arts training.
