Bizigarriak : zirkulazioa eta euforia erakusketaren inaugurazioa = Inauguración de la exposición Estimulante : circulación y euforia = Opening of the exhibition Stimulants : circulation and euphoria

We will inaugurate the first of the four exhibitions we have planned for this year. After almost two years of public programmes around modern-day stimulants such as coffee, cocoa, sugar and tobacco, we will present Stimulants: circulation and euphoria, a collective exhibition in which recently-produced works by artists such as Ibon Aranberri, Lorea Alfaro, Erick Beltrán, Ines Doujak and John Baker, Fernando Palma and Otobong Nkanga will hold a dialogue with historic figures such as Oteiza, among others.

The exhibition is structured around seven chapters and different itineraries that will evoke the three ‘circulations’ the project refers to: organic, economic and cosmic. It will also function as a repository of knowledge and documentation generated during the public activities of the programme, for which we have invited many people who have helped us to trace out a narrative on the influence of these substances in the composition of our society.
