The Arab Spring did not blossom into democracy, as many hoped, nor did it spread to all Arab nations. Syria is the paradigm of a regime that clings to power with the support of countries like Russia and Iran, while the so-called rebels are aided by powers like the US, the EU and Saudi Arabia. This foreign interference is fuelling the greatest humanitarian crisis of the 21st century.

New session in our "dramatic reading" series, where we will shine a spotlight on a hidden chapter of our recent history. We will remember those who fought for the principles that now guide our democratic way of life (equality, justice, freedom), yet whose efforts have not received the acknowledgement, much less the gratitude, they deserve.

American artist B. Wurtz is known for gathering and accumulating ordinary objects, mostly related to consumer habits, which he later assembles and groups into sculptural pieces. Rather than sublimating or altering the meaning of these items for everyday use, the sculptures underscore their formal quality and function.

Produced in association with Le Monde diplomatique (Spanish edition) and Fundación Mondiplo, this exhibition is a survey of some of the most dramatic transformations that certain borders have undergone deep within our continents, driven by dynamics of past centuries which are still present today and auger equally mutable futures.
