Garazi Ansa, Marc Badal and Laura Vallés
Komisario Berriak
Azkuna Zentroa
Komisario Berriak (KB) is a public call which came about in 2016 to develop curating practice in the Basque context and foster the consolidation of new professionals in this area. This second 2018-2019 edition, with headquarters at Azkuna Zentroa, continues its support function of making curator projects visible in the territory and, specifically, research proposals regarding artistic practices linked to the Basque Country in recent decades.

Placing special attention on projects aimed at starting up work lines, which contemplate the importance of attending the historic and narrative dimension of the curator’s work, this latest KB edition presents three studies carried out by Garazi Ansa (Oiartzun, 1989), Marc Badal (Barcelona, 1976) and Laura Vallés (Castellón, 1984).

Garazi Ansa’s research proposes a re-reading of the relationships between art and activism from the work carried out by the feminist movement at the end of the 1970s in the Basque Context and their relationships with female artists’ practices.

Marc Badal’s proposal analyses «idealisation of nature and rurality as cultural canon» from an imaginarium created by artists like Vicente Ameztoy.

And lastly, Laura Vallés’ work proposes approaching critical positions and analysing the way ZEHAR and Arena (2 essential magazines for approaching the 1980s in the Spanish State from contemporary art theory and criticism) publications do things.

Komisario Berriak is a Department of Education, Linguistic Policy and Culture of the Basque Government´s project shared between Azkuna Zentroa - Alhóndiga Bilbao, Tabakalera (Donostia-San Sebastián) and Artium (Basque Museum-Centre of Contemporary Art).
