‘Pantalla Pavelló’ is the film series directly projected on the travertine of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion that delves into the relationship between the built environment, its limits and its borders, the people who inhabit it, and how this relationship is accentuated and revealed in its maximum expression.
This summer’s program, within the framework of the Spanish Architecture Biennial that hosts the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, is developed under the same title and theme “España vacía, España llena. Strategies for conciliation” curated by Ana Bach, Eugeni Bach and Óscar Miguel Ares.
In the first session of this year’s series, the film Tierras construidas (Spain, 2019, 81′), by Arturo Dueñas, winner of the DART Festival de Arte award for best national documentary, will be screened.
At the end of the 1960s, a group of artists decided to settle in a village in deep Spain and turn it into a cultural centre. Today only Felix Cuadrado Lomas remains there, who in 2017 decided to reject the Castilla y León Prize for the Arts because of the coherence with his artistic career. His life includes a post-war childhood, a bohemian and resistant youth, and a maturity of recognition, when all his companions of generation have already disappeared. Felix remains faithful to his style, determined to reflect the landscape that surrounds him: the land built by those who work it.
The session will be presented by Arturo Dueñas, director of the documentary.
