Robin and I arrived in Barcelona early tuesday morning to attend the Inn Motion Festival at the CCCBwhere I am exhibiting both my poster "The Quitter"and my video by the same title. During our first night in town, we spent the evening walking through the Gothic District where the streets are narrow and old and just amazing for strolling and getting lost. As we were walking, I started to notice surveillance cameras on a number of the buildings, a very strange contrast between the old and the new:
On the following morning, Robin and I headed off for the Museu d'Art Contemporani where they have a great show up called: A Theater Without Theater. The absolute highlight for me was the projection of Rene Clair's 1924 film, Entr'acte. I had read about this film a few years back in Calvin Tomkin's amazing bigraphy on Marcel Duchamp. There is a famous scene of him playing chess with Man Ray, this film is amazing!
