The writer will presents “Mirrors”, this Monday in Barcelona. Eduardo Galeano defines to his text like `Around the world in 600 stories” .
The Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano advances that he will read a selection of them in his presentation Monday in “American House in Barcelona“. In an interview, the recognized journalist and writer speak of his work like “a house that has many doors and many windows”, and invite the reader “to enter by where she wants”.
I remember the beautiful “Genesis” of “Memory of fire” (1982):
“The woman and the man dreamed that God was dreaming about them. God was singing and clacking his maracas as he dreamed his dream in a tobacco smoke, feeling happy but shaken by doubt& mystery. The Makiritare Indians know that if God dreams about eating, he gives fertility and food. If God dreams about life, he is born and gives birth.”
Something about Galeano and “Mirrors”, here (spanish).
I see it in El Universal.
An interesting exhibition is in Barcelona this days. Women of Water is about Africa, women and the problem of water.
Through the photographies of the catalan photo-journalist Tomás Abella we can see this problematic in some places of Africa, focussing in the zone of Ethiopia mainly.
Abella illustrates a daily life of women in diverse African countries, searching water, to which they dedicate between five and twelve hours in a day.
Until 18/05/2008, the exhibition is in CASA AMATLLER: Pg Gràcia, 0041 – Tel. 934961245

Those that we are in Spain, we have been seeing for a time a Tv publicity of Aquarius (Coke), of “the Colifata”.
But, what is La Colifata? The Colifata is a radio that was born in 1991 in Buenos Aires, and at the microphone they are the patients of the psychiatric center Jose Tiburcio Borda.
It was born like an alternative therapy, and as his director Alfredo Olivera says: “We want that madness speaks, but also the fears that come associate to it… Everything are possible: a related soccer match that not yet has gambled, to interview to Nerón and to connect with the special envoy to Mars, where “trains are not seen flying over the sky”.
Friday 4 of April of the 2008 in Barcelona, you can see “LT22 Radio the Colifata“, the documental of Carlos Larrondo, already awarded in Gijón in December.
In his prime opera, Larrondo, also accompanies to several members of the radio in its trip by Spain, France and Italy, where initiatives inspired by the experience of the Colifata work. In Barcelona, the camera related the meeting with Manu Chao, that already was cooperated with thems, with a edition of a disc to benefit of this peculiar radio.
(So sorry, but I can’t know where will be the exhibition, that if you know, please tell us)
