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.
L’intrus (the intruder) is an exhibition about how difficult it is to make an ethical and complex picture of the stranger. The stranger is someone that “the community” cannot see clearly. The stranger is the one who, by their presence, challenges the natural assumptions of the place in which they are strange.
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).
