Solo exhibition at Joey Ramone

JOEY RAMONE is very proud to host the 1st solo exhibition in the gallery by artist duo Iratxe Jaio & Klaas van Gorkum. The exhibition which occupies both gallery and project spaces opens on Saturday 31 October 2015 from 5-8pm and runs till Saturday 12 December.

Of Mortgages and Marriages is a storyboard for a movie that was never made. It consists of a series of drawings, traced from sources such as maps, real estate brochures, mortgage advertisements, wedding pictures and family snapshots; research material from an investigation that the artists Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum made into the large-scale urban expansion of a mid-sized city in the north of Spain. It is accompanied by two videos, Showroom and Helicopter, each using a different cinematographic technique to traverse the city and its symbolical spaces.

Art and the violence of speech

We are doing three talks on our work in Bilbao next week:

"Últimas Palabras. Art and the violence of speech"
October 20, 2015 from 12:00 to 13:30
IMPORTANT: due to high number of inscriptions, the location has been changed to Sala Turing, first floor of the ESIDE-Engineering building of the Deusto University

Reservation required
The Chair in Leisure and Knowledge of the Institute of Leisure Studies at the University of Deusto is pleased to invite you to a seminar with Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum. Following the presentation of the video "Últimas Palabras", there will be a discussion with the artists about the critical capacity of art: What should be the place of art in the face of the rhetoric of power? Can one expect moral or political effects from the encounter between the public and art?
