Reverse Archaeology Time Capsule - 43°15' 35”N 2°56'14.9”W

Together with students of the new Master in Practice and Theory in Contemporary Arts and Culture at the UPV/EHU and Azkuna Zentroa, we have worked on the contents of a Time Capsule that will remain sealed for a thousand years.

It contains artefacts of the present, selected by Xabier Barrutia Abalia, Miren Bayona, Ekain, Paula Cárcamo Carrera, Victor Díez Bildosola, Juanita Puñales, Sabin Fígaro, Koldo Gutiérrez, Edurne Iriondo Plaza, Arantzazu Luzarraga Iturrioz, Lucía Meyiro, Iñaki Olarra, Alfredo Olarra, Jesús Mª Platón Cabello, Manuela Varona, Kaizen Vegas and Juan Viedma Vega.

A detailed inventory of its contents has been created to leave a record of its existence outside the box. In this way, participants reflect on their role as authors in the transformation of cultural codes over time and on the relationship between object, image and text.

This inventory will be on display during Prototipoak, Biennial of New Artistic Forms in Azkuna Zentroa, after which the Time Capsule will be sealed and hidden in a niche of the atrium of the building.
