Tours in detail
Sat 9 Apr, 14:00: Juanma González
Born in Madrid, graduated in Audiovisual Communication at Universidad Europea (Madrid) in 1999. Studied Fine Arts in Complutense University of Madrid, 4th year. Currently he resides in Stockholm and studies Master of Art in Kungl. Konsthögskolan. As a student at KKH he has found a modus operandis to finally merge his Catholic background, the interest in ritual gestures, the walking practice, his personal experiences based on nature, the creation of relational meeting places and his personal family history. Last summer, he got artistic research and development funding from KKH for carrying out a walking project to convey an old Scandinavian pilgrim route, S:t Olavsleden, in a relational framework. This summer after his graduation, he will research on historical, social and geographical aspects of Gotland – he has got a scholarship and residence by Brucebo Foundation – for the creation of a ‘ritual’ path as an utopian temporary enclave in the middle of the everyday.
