La voz de la imagen
Aware of the necessary and urgent task of gathering audiovisual resources of the memories of our photographers, as well as the personal analysis of their works and those of other contemporary artists, the General Deputy Directorate for the Promotion of Fine Arts of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports decided to undertake this project, developed by José Luis López Linares and Publio López Mondéjar, in order to interview a group of professionals who, due to their old age, can leave us a very valuable oral memory of the professional situations of their lives, which is essential to be able to reconstruct the baselines of Spanish photography.
Oral Memories
The Oral Memories project aims to be a platform for the national and international promotion of emerging and mid-career artists. This project has been created through a series of audiovisual interviews. The artists talk about the aesthetic and conceptual approaches that the creative projects bring together in their work. By including all these artists on one website, the project aims to achieve better knowledge and access to the artists. It allows a comprehensive and kaleidoscopic vision of Spanish contemporary creation, and thus becomes a helpful tool for institutions, curators and international collectors.
