Associated Activities

The audiovisual programs are intended to counteract the predo mina nt model of the black cube, even at a time in which both film and video have become fully integrated and dissolved into contemporary art museums. Their aim is to explore the projected image using different formats and discourses: historical series that broaden – and question – the narrations told by the Collection, retrospectives that draw attention to other stories in the audiovisual history and programs that examine the close links that film and video have with contemporary artistic practices. At the same time, this programming seeks to define a space for film and video outside of the usual circuits, describing itineraries distinct from the spectacle and its derivatives.    

The Museo is aware that its activities encompass a broad and highly diverse array of institutions and cultural agents, which is why, along with its own lines of research and programming, it also welcomes and supports activities put forward or devised by other institutions, thus giving visibility to independent spaces and collaborating with voices outside art circles. In its related activities, the Museo adopts an approach that differs from its usual programme, with learning, intersecting disciplines and cooperation between institutions the key notions in its development. Therefore, it looks to strengthen other initiatives and help to establish a pluralistic and diverse cultural sphere.
