The Uncle Sam with the cut hands, the head of the Statue of the Freedom nailed in a bayonet, or a dustbin with the colors of the North American flag is some of the showy images that My uncle picks up is not called Sam and with whom the Cuban propaganda has represented the United States in the last decades.

Ever since Fidel Castro arrived at the power more ago than 57 years, hundreds of fences and posters have made reference to the enemy of their revolution: the North American government, with its military power, and the company to its service.

My uncle is not called Sam reunites sixty of those works for the first time --iconic pieces in spite of its ephemeral character--, in a visual route by the graphical speech that the Cuban propaganda has used to speak of the different subjects and episodes that from 1959 have marked the relation between the United States and Cuba. A relation that finishes initiating a new stage with the historical visit to the island of North American president Barack Obama.

My uncle is not called Sam. The United States in the Cuban graph Amèrica Catalonia until the end of year will be able to be visited at home.

Author: Seba Kurtis
Exhibition realised for DOCfield16 in the Institut Français of Barcelona
May of 2016
The work of Seba Kurtis is centered in the condition for being illegal immigrant and in the consequences of immigration, a problematic key within present Europe. Kurtis employs as starting point its own experience in I exile and the secrecy, as well as the people with whom it has crossed until now. Its documentary narrative looks for to explore the invisible aspect of that phenomenon, evoking its deeper effects on the human condition. The treatment in which it puts under his negatives, that the partial elimination or the alteration of the faces of its subjects implies, works as a metaphor of psychological violence, creating a tension between the surface of the image and the space of the real thing. These €œinterventions€ allow him to put in manifesto the mechanisms of erasure of identity and the inherent dehumanization in the migratory process: colorimétricas manipulations imitate the systems of detection of humans used in the borders, negatives submerged in salt water represent the dangerous and sometimes mortal sea lanes, and colages masking the faces they denote the loss of identity of the immigrants.

Seba Kurtis (Argentina, 1974) grew in Buenos Aires under the dictatorial regime. He studied journalism and he was political activist. When Argentina underwent 2001 the economic and political crisis of vió forced to emigrate to Europe. It lived in Spain as illegal immigrant for more than five years. This experience became the main source of inspiration of its work, that explores dynamic behind the impact of the irregularity situations and its consequences in the culture, the society and the individual. At the moment, it resides in England.

Brazil. Terra Prometida, is a sample of House Amèrica Catalonia comisariada by the photographer and cultural agitator Iatã Cannabrava. Four artists interpret with different visual channels what a world-wide campaign of love by Brazil considers €œ€, in words from their commissioner.

Different artists interpret this engaged earth. For Cláudia Jaguaribe it is always embraced Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; for Cássio Vasconcellos it is the great congestion; Dimitri Lee rearranges the paradise €“or it will be hell? - whereas Roberta Carvalho puts the eye spy in this story of you foretell contemporary.

With Tierra Prometida, Brazilian commissioner Iatâ Cannabrava offers a panóptica vision to us, thanks to which we can cross four very different artistic glances on a same idea: that one promissory earth, loaded of prosperity, possibilities, growth and, coverall, future in which Brazil is becoming. It is the vision of Marta Nin, director of Culture and Exhibitions of House Amèrica Catalonia.

In this exhibition, House Amèrica Catalonia has the magnificent possibility of adding the works of artists of the Brazilian contemporary photography as Cláudia Jaguaribe (2 series, 8 works), Cássio Vasconcellos (4 works) and Dimitri Lee (4 works). To these authors, Cannabrava adds to one fourth visual artist Nobel: Roberta Carvalho (2 videos and 1 installation on the street).
Tobacco grower (Madrid) 2010
E·CO 2010 is realised, first in Madrid and later in Soria, in the form of round tables in which it will struggle on the problematic one of the photographic world, in addition to carrying out a factory and two exhibitions, next to other activities, that were developed of parallel form in both cities.

The photographic groups constitute one of the contemporary phenomena that have arisen with greater force in the international panorama from the photography and the contemporary art. The massification of the supply of images and the saturation of traditional means of diffusion brings about in the authors the necessity to generate new models of representation able to emphasize its production.

In many occasions, the groups act as it gets hold of (bank of images) and as common platform in front of a difficult market, or as mechanism of joint creation, generating interesting synergies and forums of discussion between the members of each equipment. In Encuentro it is tried to notify of this phenomenon, trying to deepen in the forms of work of the most significant groups of the present panorama in Europe and Latin America, that work especially in scopes of documentary or social action, by means of public presentations of his more important projects.

It is possible to emphasize that it is the first time that in Spain takes place an encounter of this type, with the presence of 20 photographic groups, that come from Germany (Ostkreuz), Argentina (Sub.Coop), Brazil (company of Foto and Garapa), Costa Rica (Collective Nomad), France (Odessa, Tendance Floue and Transit), Italy (TerraProject), Mexico (Mondaphoto), Peru (Supay Photos and Versus Photo), Portugal (KameraPhoto), the United Kingdom (Documentography), Venezuela (NGO), Spain (Blank Paper, Nophoto, Pandora and Ruido Photo) and a group that groups photographers of Europe ofthe East (Est&Ost).

The concept €œResilience€, that gives name to this exhibition, quantifies the capacity of regeneration of a body after an impact and gives faith of a continuous acclimatization, for that reason the works presented here affect from diverse perspective the capacity of adaptation and overcoming of a society that is itself affected by continuous fluctuations. In Latin America the creation processes arise political, economic and social effervescence in the heat of. The work of professionals appears who, in addition to having the restlessness to show the changes that occur in their surroundings, reflect on the paper of the image in our society. Of this form, the habitual paradigms are questioned and the formats adapt in a while to new visual codes of continuous mutation.
