Title: «HOME» and «COSIRAR»

Directors: Patricia Tamayo, Albert Badia

Year: 2021

Genre: Documentary

Running time: 5 min

Status: Finished

Synopsis

Two pieces for the Thinking Biennale in the context of “A Vocabulary for the Future” of the CCCB, which reflect on the words “HOME” and “COSIRAR”.

“A Vocabulary for the Future” is a collective essay about the world to come, a project of creating a dialogue between thinkers, writers, and local and international visual creators to imagine together an alternative and more hospitable future. The result is fourteen original audiovisual pieces created by the Thinking Biennale, shaping a kind of incipient cartography, a first map for exploring possible exits from this damaged present. Revolving around a particular word, each piece is a vanishing point, an open window, an invitation to think anew about the way we inhabit the world. CCCB
