Course of the Institut d’Humanitats de Barcelona.
What longings and desires does it shelter today the house? It is, as was saying Bachelard, the topography of our intimate being? How has it changed the range of senses granted socially to the domestic space? And his form and his functions? Home, strength, cover, burrow, nest, lodging. In the course of the time, the house has given response to diverse needs and has represented a heterogeneous set of values and meanings: it is the space where to find refuge in an inhospitable world, tool of political fight and of social control, scene of conflicts of kind.
This course proposes a polyhedric approximation to the sense of the house, from inside towards out, exploring his uses, the different ways of living the domestic spaces, his evolution and his symbolic load. Along the course, the pupils who wish it will be constructing a photographic common file with the will to represent, to document and question the diverse dimensions of the house. The final workshop, with the photographer Laura Covarsí, will gather these images and will examine the work of some contemporary photographers to create an atlas of uses of the photography concerning the domestic space.
