One of the project’s key features is its transversal nature, acting as a crossroads where different disciplines can coexist. Tabakalera aims to inspire reflection on contemporary issues via a programme of seminars, workshops, screenings, exhibitions and publications. It creates a critical community by supporting creation, knowledge and exhibition programmes that are aimed at both a specialist audience and the general public.
The work of Rosa Barba (Italian born, living in Germany) contests and recasts truth and fiction, myth and reality, metaphor and material to a disorientating degree, which ultimately extends into a conceptual practice. Exhibition curated by Cristina Cámara.
Ariketak: la segunda respiración is the new thematic focus that Tabakalera proposes for the 2018-2019 two-year period, in which it will create an extensive programme that includes conferences, seminars, exhibitions and film and music seasons.
The Tabakalera cinema is a shared public screen programmed jointly by Tabakalera, Basque Film Library, Donostia Kultura, Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola and SSIFF-San Sebastian International Film Festival. Our programme proposes a constant review of the history of film (its past, present and future).
