"La Carpa" by David Bestué and Roser Corella - Loop Barcelona - Fundació Mies van der Rohe

“La Carpa” by David Bestué and Roser Corella – Loop Barcelona

The Fundació Mies van der Rohe joins Loop Festival, the platform for artist’s films and videos dedicated to the study and promotion of the moving image, featuring ”La Carpa” by documentary filmaker Roser Corella and artist and writer David Bestué in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion.

”La Carpa” aims to investigate the process of construction, use and disappearance of a removable theater installed at the end of the sixties in  L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, the work of the Murcian architect Emilio Pérez Piñero. This research is based on the account of direct testimonies: neighbors, city council workers and relatives of the architect. Being temporary and ephemeral, many of Emilio Pérez Piñero’s works only survive in memory, like a ghost, but the case of ”La Carpa” is special because its current whereabouts are unknown.

The presentation of the project will be held on 13 November at 17:30h in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion with the participation of the artists.
