DIALOGUES 2019 the Bull in Human History

May 24th -26th   2019

The first in a series of Dialogues, this initiative of our Thinkers Club, supports the development of actions to connect and project the environmental and cultural heritage of Ribatejo to the world, through History, Science and Art.

With the aim of promoting Ribatejo in all its aspects, we organize a Public Roundtable with international speakers to revive the noble Identity of our land and the Touro Bravo, that grazes free in our landscape.  Our invited speakers represent intellectual, scientific and social institutions of deep knowledge about the primordial man/bull relationship coming from different parts of the world, who have shown interest in the Ribatejo coexistence paradigm.

EXHIBITION

EXHIBITION "MINOTAURO" of Horst Friedrichs

First Presentation of the Photographic Series "Minotauro" of Horst Friedrichs
May 20th to June 20th, 2019

"Um dos melhores e mais premiados fotógrafos mundiais da actualidade, Horst Friedrichs tem desenvolvido um Portfolio ímpar de actividade editorial com um foco no pessoal e intransmissível, desde as colinas e aldeias perdidas da Venezuela ao deserto do Mali, das culturas MOD Underground do Rock&Roll, até à precisão milimétrica dos Alfaites de Savile Row em Londres.

Evitando o olhar crítico e sarcástico de análise, o seu trabalho fotográfico demonstra uma curiosidade e proximidade inerentes ao sujeito retratado, de Bill Gates a Stephen Hawking, fazendo com que cada fotografia e série tenham vários tempos de visualização/percepção. Não procura o outro lado do espelho mas o reflexo real e puro, acidentalmente curioso.

Descobre Portugal em 2019, desenvolvendo um fascínio particular pelo Ribatejo e Alentejo, e fotografando o carácter forte e singular dos habitantes destas regiões, as suas paisagens e tradições.

Desenvolve a Série Minotauro com um conjunto de retratos individuais do Grupo de Forcados de Coruche, retratando não só o universo particular de tradição e vanguarda, carisma e carácter de cada membro do grupo, como o método de transformação de cada sujeito singular num membro activo de um grupo habituado ao ritual centenário da arena.

A ligação do fotógrafo ao espaço mágico do Convento INN é estabelecida desde a primeira visita e descoberta deste espaço, repleto de memórias familiares e de pequenos detalhes que fotografa cada dia com curiosidade aguçada. Apaixona-se pelo jardim e pelo labirinto de salas, pelo perfume da flôr de laranjeira, pelo horizonte nostálgico.
Promete voltar a cada ano, e como Português de adopção, já sente saudades.”
