As part of our online program, the Embassy of Spain in London has gathered a selection of pieces that explore the possibilities of translating the physical world into the digital. All content, produced after social distancing restrictions were implemented, is the result of the Programa Ventana, an ambitious initiative by AECID and various Spanish embassies around the world.
In it’s introduction, The world we can see presents Peephole, a selection of four Spanish short films produced during the strictest period of lockdown, which helped various artists and visual creators to come up with new and innovative ideas on how to tell stories. The selection includes the short films Sueños Confinados, Rumbo a Eleusis, Barro and Un sueño español.
For the second part of the program we are pleased to present Social DisDancing. As stage artist have to say goodbye to theatres, dancers and coreographers have been able to translate their movement from the spotlight to the screens. Social DisDancing includes the works Last Night, Me encuentro, Oh love, what will I do with such mobility and Umbral.
Then, as the intermission of the show comes along, audiences will enjoy the series #ThisIsNotAMusicBreak, featuring multiple Spanish musicians like Rodrigo Cuevas, Marta Robles, Ekateryna Zayesteva and Arturo O’Farrill, who are exploring new territories in music and performance.
And for it’s fourth and last instalment, The world we can see features the commentary on various exhibitions produced and promoted by the AECID and other embassies around the world. Under the name Let me show you, artist featured in these exhibitions explain to us what lies behind their body of work.
The whole programme will be accompanied by a parallel section under the name What you can’t watch, you can see, that features content created for the digital world that doesn’t necessarily translate into a video, including a commentary on Jaime Gil de Biedma, an exhibition curated for the Paris Design Week and the latest international project in which our embassy took part, The Great Conspiracy, an ambitious exhibition created exclusively to be visited online.
