JOURNEY TO THE LAND OF THE INUIT
Photographs, texts and drawings
From the 17th to the 26th. Foyer of the Cirvianum Theatre. Free admission
Through the eyes of Francesc Bailón Trueba, anthropologist and polar traveller, we will delve into the Inuit culture through photographs collected during the Arctic expeditions carried out by the author in the last 20 years.
An immersion in a culture better known by its name than by its cultural reality.
27th EDITORIAL SPACE
Sample of the latest novelties in mountain books.
THE MOUNTAINS OF THE COMIC
As a first-rate artistic and narrative expression, comics are currently considered the 9th art. Many cartoonists and screenwriters have created, from strips, pages, magazines or books, a universe around characters, often heroes. Unlike cinema, in comics you can't talk about a mountain genre, but many authors have set the adventures of their characters there.
The exhibition is a small sample of how the mountains have participated in comics through 80 years of adventure, fantastic, historical, detective or western comics, aimed at all audiences.
