Bring the 90s back at San Telmo Museoa
The exhibition “The new 90s”, is an essay-exhibition by Nekane Aramburu, an approach to the different artistic groups that worked at the end of the 80s, the 90s and in the early 2000s, combining their energies with alternative, peripheral and cross-border perspectives derived from social, political, intellectual, feminist and environmental commitments. Thus, the exhibition contributes to the preservation and transmission of that cultural ecosystem, incorporating the spirit of initiatives and spaces, some of which are still active locally or internationally, such as El Gallinero, Zelai Azpi, Zapatari, Arteleku, La Fiambrera, Las Chamas and Consonni.
The project includes 146 creators and groups, as well as productions that are seeing the light for the first time, all of them from a perspective of their meaning within a choral gear assembly where the participatory aspect transcends individualities.
Within the framework of a complex global scene, the 90s in the Basque Country took on certain differential complexities due to the evolution of situations such as the transformation of economic models. There is also a transition period replete with micro-events between 1994 and 1997, after which a renewal of strategies and ways of operating in both the public and private spheres became apparent and would become visible between 1997 and 2001.
Exhibited at San Telmo Museoa (Few minutes away from the Hotel Parma) until the 4th June 2023.
