Roundtable: "Another Afghanistan" 2011/01/13 17:25 The freelance photographer Guillermo Cervera and the journalist of La Vanugardia Plàcid Garcia-Planas have a very different perspective about Afghanistan. Where some people see marines, attacks, politicians, burqas and stereotypes, they see transvestites, boxers, thugs, skaters and kytes. They are some of the few western journalists who work in Kandahar –the spiritual capital of the Talibans– travelling alone, without being enlisted in any western army. They are only enlisted in the Afghan army. Why? “Because it is the army of the Afghans –they say–. Because everyone dislikes them. Because we should –we would desperately want to– give them the responsability of security in Afghanistan, so we can leave the country”. Guillermo and Plàcid will explain their experience in the streets of Kabul and the paths of Badgis, around the Taliban valley of Mashali Kamar, the Taliban valley of Arghandab and the markets of Kandahar. /swf/player.swf?videourl=/media/asset_publics/resources/000/006/993/original/2010_12_02_Otro_Afganistan.mp4&fotourl=/keyframes/6993.jpg&barcolor=99C1FD&streaming=true

Despite everything, the electoral system designed by the regime offers few doubts about the desire of soldiers to guarantee a new political reality depending on interests. The absence of Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy in elections has complete the uncertainty of the future of a political opposition which is divided and weakened, in a country where political, economic and social problemas are built up. /swf/player.swf?videourl=/media/asset_publics/resources/000/006/767/original/2010_11_17_Birmania.mp4&fotourl=/keyframes/6767.jpg&barcolor=99C1FD&streaming=true

Exhibition "North Korea: The Weight of History" 2010/04/26 10:00 The history of this nation since its foundation in 1948, with the proclamation of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, after the surrender of Japan coinciding with the end of the Second World War in 1945, and division of the country into North and South with the creation of two independent governments, is a history lesson that is worth remembering to understand the present. The aim of this exhibition is to raise public awareness of the evolution of this country, since 1954, following the cessation of hostilities, which erupted in June 1950 between the North and the South and whose result did not take place until three years later. The "weight" of history in this case refers to information provided by the facts and events connected with the 20th Century, useful to understand the conditions of the local context in the global scene that characterizes the society of information. The visual display, through graphic images, photography and audio, will allow the audience to be familiar with the present of an isolated country in the international system, but whose history should be shown in order to access the knowledge of its current reality. The exhibition will include unpublished documentary material in Spain in order to expand the informative and didactic contents of the project. /swf/player.swf?videourl=/media/asset_publics/resources/000/005/201/original/expocorea_web.mp4&fotourl=/keyframes/5201.jpg&barcolor=99C1FD&streaming=true
