CHECK IN BUDAPEST 9.

The lecture will reflect some aspects of Montehermoso Kulturunea program; including the exhibitions, seminars, publications and research lines developed since 2008. Focusing on the different strategies elaborated by the structure, this talk will attempt to contextualize an art project based in the capital city of Basque country (Spain) and the simultaneous dialogues it establishes with different “scenes”, in terms of contemporary art practices. Trough some concrete artists and projects, the lecture will describe the complexity of Spanish/Basque contemporary art scene and its relationships with a broader international context, inscribed in the political and social transformation process which occurred during the last two decades in the territory.

Cooperation partner of Check-in Budapest 9. is Kitchen Budapest.
