El Mar - Visi贸n de unos ni帽os que no lo han visto nunca

Description

In 1934, Catalan teacher Antoni Benaiges arrived at the rural school of Ba帽uelos de Bureba, a small village in Burgos. He asked the children, who had never seen the sea, to write an assignment on how they imagined it. What visions would have risen out of their confrontation with that great unknown? The answer emerged in 1936, when the children鈥檚 poetic texts were published as a book: El Mar 鈥 Visi贸n de unos ni帽os que no lo han visto nunca [The Sea A vision by children who have never seen it]. Antoni Benaiges promised his pupils that he would take them to see the sea in the summer of that same year, but he was murdered by the Francoists and so the promise went unfulfilled. El Mar 鈥 a show conceived by Xavier Bob茅s and Alberto Conejero 鈥 tells the story of this tragic event via an approach in which objects, poems and documents non-hierarchically coexist.
