Río Manzanares: un teatro para la memoria (The Manzanares River: A Theatre for Memory)
This podcast is based on the work of the artist Irene de Andrés, A orillas del Manzanares (On the Banks of the Manzanares River, 2022), whose research originates in a pool shaped like an ocean liner, known as La Isla (the island), which was built in the Madrilenian Manzanares river in the 1930s.
With the help of two experts—Malú Cayetano, landscape designer and forestry engineer, and David Uribelarrea del Val, professor of geomorphology at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid—we open a conversation about the Manzanares river, understood as a theater of memory, that puts into circulation the layers and flows of a city in relation to the forms of life that its river has made and will continue to make possible.
