    This time, CA2M launches the revision of gaze. From a number of talks with theoreticians, educators and artists, this course seeks to reflect on both current art proposals and on our gaze toward art. Against that plain spellbound, admiring and unselfish contemplation that apparently modern art demanded us, current art seems to confront the distracted gaze already mentioned by Walter Benjamin: the disperse gaze from the bourgeois around the city, the walker that looks at everything and doesn´t see anything, maybe even the paradigm of contemporary art as if by consensus all of us would have lost that capacity to gaze simultaneously. So, it is all about wondering about the possibilities that current art can offer for the vindication of a gaze, from its dispersion, remains affected and politically interested.


    CA2M offers a number of training activities on art and contemporary thinking within the framework of traditional free universities specifically designed for young people and adults. These courses offer a clear and concise insight into some of the basic concepts for understanding and interpreting contemporary art. The activities are divided into two parts: the first part consists of the introduction of a theme by a guest speaker, who in the second part opens the floor to a discussion involving participants.
