Exactitud Emocional: El fotoperiodismo y sus representaciones cinematográficas
This virtual exhibition contains historical photographs and stills from movies about the Spanish Civil War. It’s made up of six pairs of images that are similar in form, content, and theme. With these photos, the exhibit shows how the fictional can be more real and “correct” than the factual. Movies about the Spanish Civil War demonstrate an emotional accuracy that describes the feeling and experiences of the war without perfect historical accuracy.
Las voces silenciadas de la Brigada Lincoln
The Abraham Lincoln Brigade was an organization of 2,800 volunteers from the United States. They were mainly young men and women from all over the country who were particularly affected by the Great Depression and who feared that fascism in Europe might affect them. Along with people from other countries, they made up the International Brigades that supported the Second Republic. Today, their voices are continually silenced in popular and historical representations of the war, and this virtual exhibition aims to tell their stories.
