The San Telmo Museum in San Sebastian has announced that Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum have been selected by the artist Jose Mari Zabala to succeed him in the Museo Bikoitza programme.

Museo Bikoitza is a programme of annual interventions in the museum by a guest artist. The aim is to provide a favourable environment for a series of re-readings of the collection and museographical story by different artists. The result of this work will form part of the exhibition programme for a year, before finally being added to the museum’s art collection.

Expanding the Frame is een zelf geïnitieerde expositie door Ateliers Ackersdijkstraat 20 om het begin van de zomer en de versoepelde coronamaatregelen te vieren. Cinema is de rode draad die tijdens dit evenement door de grote diversiteit aan artistieke praktijken in het studiocomplex zal lopen. De kunstenaars en enkele speciaal uitgenodigde gasten zullen hun werk presenteren door gebruik te maken van cinematografische elementen zoals tijd, beweging, vertelling, licht, geluid of scenografie. De tentoonstelling is gratis te bezoeken op 3 en 4 juli 2021.

“Alemanen kanposantue” is colloquial Basque for “the graveyard of the Germans”. It is also the name given by locals to a memorial stele from the Spanish Civil War that stood forgotten and neglected by the side of a road in rural Basque Country, and into which once were engraved the names of three German soldiers who belonged to the Condor Legion of the Luftwaffe.

The surface of the monument has been chipped and damaged by years of vandalism and accumulating layers of political graffiti. We have made a sculptural reproduction of this surface, treating it as a palimpsest of all the informal attempts to dismantle and appropriate the ideologically laden object.

The sculpture is combined with a series of pencil drawings in which we map the “guilty landscape” that surrounds the stone, in a style that closely follows that of original military sketches of the front line during the war.
