KONTENPORANEA #3

Construction

The third edition of Kontenporanea is articulated around construction, understanding this concept in a broad sense, to configure a solid and sustainable programme, which unfolds in four directions: construction of ideas, space, society and environment. KEOA 2019 occupies the outdoor space with the aim of giving greater visibility to artistic projects in our territory and fostering new relationships with the public.

On this occasion, the organising committee was formed by Andrea Villamor Sanchez and Patricia Taberna Solbes (Irun), Ane Lekuona Mariskal (Hondarribia) and Viveca Tallgren (Finnish, based in Hendaye), with experience in the fields of Art History, Cultural Management and Graphic Design. The multidisciplinary nature of the work team has enriched the process, facilitated and accompanied by Bitamine Faktoria.

Kontenporanea was held in the surroundings of Plaza San Juan in Irun during the weekend of 18-20 May 2018.

MORE PROJECTS

Emotional Atlas of Bidasoa

Atlas: A collection of maps, mainly geographical, presented in book or notebook form.

This project arises as a continuation of the research carried out thanks to the 2019 Ribera Grant awarded by Irun City Council, which was entitled "Emotional Cartography of Bidasoa".

The main idea revolves around the decision to carry out a practical mediation exercise on the contents researched. Not only to highlight different characters, events, hobbies, etc., but also to work on it in a transversal way with different artistic disciplines.

We are sure that research of these characteristics that deals with interculturality, in a border context at the moment we are living in, provides more plural results in the revision of many aspects of the historical memory of this territory. "In a time of globalisation, the most revealing object of study, the most questioning of ethnocentric or disciplinary pseudo-certainties is interculturality" (Canclini, 2006: 101). Interculturality is the tool with which we have to work for integration. Dialogue, in order to understand and accept our diversity as cultural richness and intangible world heritage, is the basis of our coexistence.

We have called it an atlas, because it presents a series of educational booklets combined with the work of the illustrator Elena Odriozola, highlighting relevant social aspects. Ten small notebooks that tell stories of a geographical space written in an elegant way by María José Noain Maura and with a language that is accessible to all kinds of audiences.

Texts: Maria José Noain Maura
Coordination and layout: Helga Massetani Piemonte

KONTENPORANEA #5

Kontenporanea is a contemporary culture meeting promoted by Irun City Council and organised by young professionals from the fields of art, culture and design. Under a collective and collaborative format, each one forms part of a gear with the aim of giving visibility to the artistic projects that exist in our territory and sharing an experience with local, national and international creatives.

The general theme around which this edition revolves is the contrast between the exterior and the interior, which has arisen as a result of the situation of recent years.

We feel that a limitation has been defined between the home and the public space, generating consequences in several areas: relational, emotional, psychological, economic, etc.

We want this edition of Kontenporanea to create a space where we can share the perspectives of what we have experienced in order to understand and work on this dichotomy.
