“Diluted, denumeralised, gender degenerated.” Activities about the exhibition “Ensayos sobre lo cutre. Lecturas del Archivo [Essays on Seediness. Readings from the archive]” Miguel Benlloch

14, 15, 27 and 29 January 2022

PRE-REGISTRATION. LIMITED CAPACITY

The forms could be but, for the living, it would be better if they did, as is the case when, regarding Miguel Benlloch, the shabby form makes the arch-apprehended unreadable: proposing possibilities that degenerate assigned forms of beauty, body, sensuality, discourse, position, or even gender.

Benlloch’s subtlety in leaving qualities of being and transforming them into actions, points to a repertoire of actions that cannot be systematically catalogued or replicated, but in which we can appreciate a drive towards living and the consistent effort to take time.

These activities begin with the performer’s writing and listening to the music to which he danced, and will continue by looking at his bodily gestures in the exhibition hall and going out for a walk in the city following a past that embraces him. We endorse his insistence not to work in isolation: embodying the grammatical subject that he named as “otrosyyo”, we invite you to read his archive.

Activities under the care of Alejandro Simón, co-curator of the exhibition.
