Globalizing Human Towers. From Catalonia to the World
17h. Aula 314. Campus Catalunya.
In this session David Oliete will introduce the cultural expression of human towers (Castells) and will explain how this tradition is spreading from Catalonia to the World. To do that, he will use a visual method through his work as professional photographer. Oliete will explain how he produces his pictures and video projects, and will comment on the issue of how human towers have been gaining media coverage not only in Catalonia but internationally. In this voyage, he will comment on the Concurs de Castells and some other key events and clues to understand the links among tradition, identity, transnational cultures, global media and networks, and cultural imaginary.
