UPCOMING EVENTS & LECTURES

  • CURRENT CEDLA EXHIBITION

    We Care explore those deep familiar relationships and intergenerational connections. The 15 portraits and poetry that are part of this exhibition are a reflection of how daily life activities can become rituals of reflection about femininity, erotism and a way to transmit oral traditions from one generation to the other. Diana Agámez & Luisa Machacón bring to the spotlights the rupture in the orality, familiar laces and traditions that arises when women in the Latin American society need economic independence and there is not enough time to work and take care of the elders. This photography & poetry exhibition will be open to the public from 6th September at CEDLA . +INFO

    18/10/19 CEDLA LECTURE

  • Entangled modernities: Latin America’s unexpected influence on Germany’s “Bauhaus” tradition
    Dr. Bert Hoffmann, GIGA (Hamburg)

    The history of modernity is commonly told as a uni-directional one: How its concepts were developed in Europe and North America, and from there expanded to the rest of the globe. A classic case is the “Bauhaus” school, founded in Germany’s Weimar 100 years ago, and which became a global landmark of modernity in architecture, arts, and beyond. In contrast to the dominant narrative, this presentation looks at the entanglements and counter-currents inherent in the process. It looks at the “Bauhaus” from the opposite direction: Not how it spread from Germany to Latin America, but how Latin American experiences left their imprint on the “Bauhaus tradition” in Germany.
