Retrospective exhibitions on Alexander Kluge at Copi at La Virreina

La Virreina Image Centre to host retrospective exhibitions of two cult artists

From 5 November to 5 February, La Virreina Centre de la Imatge will be hosting two parallel exhibitions on two of the leading names in contemporary visual art. On the one hand, The Time of Monsters is a look back on the work of the late Argentinean illustrator, playwright and writer Raúl Damonte Botana, also known as Copi, who lived in Paris during the tumultuous decade of the 1960s and created subversive fables in the shape of cartoon strips, tales and theatre plays.

The second exhibition, Gardens of Cooperation, explores the career of German filmmaker, writer and essayist Alexander Kluge, a disciple of the Frankfurt School and closely connected to the birth of the New German Cinema in the 1960s, as well as being a prodigious producer of works that combine social criticism with an experimental approach. Kluge has played an important role in the exhibition at La Virreina, which is the first to be devoted to him in Spain, and has contributed previously unseen material, belonging both to him and to his production company, Kairos-Film, as well as producing new audiovisual material especially for this occasion.

The official opening of both exhibitions is scheduled for Friday 4 November at 7pm.
