New Patrons: a methodology for a socio-political transformation through the arts, applied in Spain by Concomitentes
🌿 The seventh CreaTures and Friends seminar will take place on
April 20th, 2021, 13:30-14:30 CEST 🌿
In this session, Isabelle Le Galo Flores, Director of Fundación Daniel y Nina Carasso (Spain) and Sören Meschede, coordinator of Concomitentes, will present New Patrons, a methodology that reconnects contemporary art with the needs and urgencies of society. It helps groups of citizens to commission an artwork in order to tackle the questions that they consider important for their context. Since 1992, the New Patrons protocol has led to the completion of over 500 works of art. Many of them are striking illustrations of the extraordinary possibilities that open up when people rally to address an issue and decide to make changes in their own context. Concomitentes works with the methodology in Spain since 2018. They will explain its key elements, map the history of its making and present several projects, in Spain and abroad.
