JULIO VÉLEZ SAINZ (Complutense University of Madrid)

Theatre as a dialogue between the arts

"The theatre is poetry that comes out of the book to become human", Federico García Lorca, who had a great knowledge painting, music and poetry, proposes theatre as the sum of all visual, written and performing arts. In the talk we follow in his wake and propose a panoramic vision of Hispanic Theatre as the nucleus of "total art".



Architecture and memory: eight contemporary Spanish works

Contemporary Spanish architecture is a cultural sample that cannot be understood outside of the roots that frame it in memory and place. We will review eight significant works in which it is shown that architecture uses multiple tools to come true.

Wednesday 18th


IGNACIO ARELLANO AYUSO (Universidad de Navarra)

Quevedo, painter with words: portraits in Quevedo's work.

Some of Don Francisco de Quevedo's portraits will be examined, from the laudatory ones he dedicates to kings and nobles to the grotesque caricatures he applies to characters of low social status, but also on occasions to kings and emperors.



Public space and socialisation in present-day Spain

Streets, squares and green areas are part of the physical space of socialisation. In Spanish cities, the urban landscape offers its own characteristics in terms of its typologies, historical evolution and new contemporary uses.
