Trip to the Moon & Removal
film screening

Trip to the Moon.
The aim, according to Amat, is to unravel the mysteries of the screenplay, an effort to distill its essence, silhouetting his poetic suggestion and let the script itself manifests in the different film procedures that invites the Lorquian conception.

(Removal) came to be made after the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist asked for involvement in the Huerta de San Vicente, the home and museum of the García-Lorca family in Granada.

The film records the removal of furniture and objects from the building, leaving visitors able to move freely amongst its empty spaces and a silence charged with feeling and resonance and the take from the experience whatever the y demand from it - thus making poet Federico García Lorca's emotive and historic absence ever more powerful, evident and heartfelt.

may 2012


Shoji Kojima,  dancer
Juan Gomez ‘Chicuelo’, guitarist
Miguel Ángel Soto ‘Londro’, singer
Hausson, ilusionist
Frederic Amat, painter


View Spanish dancer dancing to Argentina was an inspiration to Kazuo Ohno dance master Bhutto. With their eyes on them, the teacher and dancer Japanese Shoji Kojima will look at his own culture, his memory, his flamenco. We will share in a game of mirrors and reflections.

Frederic Amat has always been stimulated by this "other" world view offered by Japan and fascinated by their particular sensitivity that makes life a ceremony, a show. Understands its collaboration with Shoji Kojima and illusionist Hausson as a mosaic of improvisations, suggestions and presence, which subvert the excitement stems from the tradition in an attempt to find different expressions of flamenco. There shouldn't be an event, but an apparition.

Artigas. Lhome del foc

april 2012


Josep Llorens Artigas (Barcelona, 1892 – Gallifa, 1980) is one of the most important names in twentieth-century European pottery. The “Artigas. L’home del foc” (“Artigas. The Man of Fire”) exhibition gives us the opportunity to understand and realise the importance of the main contributions of Artigas. The exhibition shows over one hundred and fifty items covering his long career in chronological order, including his fruitful collaboration with artists such as Raoul Dufy and Joan Miró.

Picasso, the heart of the matter

october 2011

In my talk on the works in the exhibition Devorar París. Picasso 1900-07 I want to discuss the gestation and crystallization of a great and daring creative adventure in the early years of the twentieth century, and the impact this has had on our vision of reality and its appearances.,2138,417470534_417706709_2_1590865930,00.html?accio=detall&home=

FREDERIC AMAT ho va deixar

june 2011


Frederic Amat és un dels artistes catalans més reconeguts internacionalment i un dels més difícils de classificar per la seva amplitud d’interessos i camps de  treball. Pintura, gravats, espais escènics, murals, pel·lícules i un llarg etcètera configuren el seu univers plàstic. Va estudiar Arquitectura dos anys durant els anys setanta a l’etsab. Ens trobem a la seva casa-estudi de Barcelona per parlar sobre la seva obra i el seu interés per l’arquitectura.

TATE MODERN: Joan Mir Study Day

june 2011


Art and Politics: Joan Miró Study Day
Saturday 25 June 2011, 10.30–17.00

This Study Day explores issues raised by the major exhibition of Joan Miró at Tate Modern. Starting from the surrealist context of Miró's art it moves to the broader theme of the complex relationship between art and politics. Speakers address a range of issues, from the specific contexts in which Miró worked, to the ‘radicalism’ of surrealism. Curators, academics and artists contribute to the debates. Speakers include artists Frederic Amat and Eva Bosch, art historians and curators Jon Bird, William Jeffett, Robert Lubar and Gill Perry, philosopher Nigel Warburton, and curators of the Miró exhibition Matthew Gale and Marko Daniel.
In collaboration with The Open University
Supported by the Institut Ramon Llull
