Jornadas de la Nueva Crítica in MACBA

What does it take to be a critic? Where can we hear and read their voices? Will we have to ask about them? Or, perhaps, only by criticism? As a textuality that implies and installs it in multiple configurations. Between the growing interest in some critical legacies that is visible in research, samples and publications and the emergence of a discourse that surpasses the usual places, mass media and academics, emerged the imperative of these Days that try to map states of situation, to activate reflections , Inquire in the form of questions and open, always open! Spaces of exchange.

The seminars will be presented in the framework of the exhibition The writing of the present / A space archive where different art publications will be exhibited, and a Parallel Program of activities that includes analysis, reading and writing workshops by Malena Souto, Florencia Qualina And Laura Isola, respectively, guided tours, and the publication of a special issue of the CIA Magazine dedicated to the contents produced in the framework of the Conference, as well as the continuity of the cycle Geometries of thought, coordinated also by Laura Isola that will feature Paola Cortes Rocca, Lucas Soares, Marcelo Pombo, and among other guests.

The Days of the New Critique are presented at MACBA in the imminence of its 5th Anniversary and in the face of the task of redefining its mission and its institutional course, assuming the commitment to promote practices that serve as an instrument to challenge our present.
