Since the first season of Pas a dos in 1998, these public and open discussions with writers have offered a view of a very wide range of literary creation. This year, 2011, we have widened the spectrum to include creation in various disciplines.

Courses offered:

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.

Almost all activities in our society are, directly or indirectly, oil dependent. OIL is not only used to generate energy - we use it mainly in transport, but it is also used in food production (fertilisers, pesticides...), clothing, dyes, plastics, varnishes, hygiene products, etc.. In less than a century, oil has modelled cities and society as we know them today, with all their progress and growth, but also their want and especially the consequences arising from these, such as overexploitation of the planet, pollution and climate change.
