Screening of the documentaries "Pintura habitada" on Helena Almeida and "S/T" on Chema Madoz

On 13 July at 6:30 pm we will be screening two documentaries that have sought to capture the creative process of the authors of our current exhibition "Helena Almeida | Chema Madoz. Inhabited designs".

S/T, 2006

Documentary on Chema Madoz directed by Luis Mengs.

The director explains that for several months he visited Chema Madoz's studio in the Sierra de Madrid. He watched him work in silence and they hardly spoke to each other. Madoz generously agreed to take a photograph so that Mengs could record his process with a Super8 camera. The result was this short documentary, which has no beginning and no end.
