newsletter SAD CENTENARY newsletter
newsletter
newsletter La Moncloa, February 1981. According to the chronicles of that obscene winter of three-cornered hats in the Congress of Deputies, tanks in the streets and moustached orders to get on the floor during the coup d'état, as Adolfo Suárez was handing over the presidency of the Spanish government to Leopoldo Calvo Sotelo, nobody could find either the password or the key to the safe box in the president's office, which was supposed to contain the most important of State secrets. When the experts eventually managed to open it, they found the only secret that it actually held: the combination to get into it.

Over the course of this year celebrations are being held to mark the centenary of the Commonwealth ('Mancommunity') of Catalonia, an avant la lettre autonomous community institution. From 1914 to 1925 it carried out unprecedented governance, including pushing forward a pioneering cultural policy in Europe. Were it not for the Commonwealth, institutions such as the Catalan Library, the Institute of Catalan Studies, the Vocational College (Escola del Treball), School for Women, popular libraries, the Librarians' School, and the Catalan Museum of Art, in addition to the systematic excavating of archaeological sites all over Catalonia, would probably not have come about, or at least not until much further down the line. As with James Bond films -in which he always sports a different brand of watch- the problem with commemorations is knowing who is paying homage to who: the brand of watch to Her Majesty's agent or vice versa? Worse still, a good commemoration can end up glossing over the inertia and even incompetence of the very institution it is promoting and celebrating. In 2114, when history brings us together again and somebody manages to open the box (be it the safe or Pandora's, time will tell) that contains the vestiges of 21st century Catalan cultural policy, what they will find is the rubble from the systematic deconstruction of the last 35 years tangled up with the leftover confetti and streamers from some sad centenary.

London, July 1945: an apparently empty taxi pulls up at 10 Downing St. When the door opens Clement Attlee alights, ready to succeed Winston Churchill as prime minister of Britain. According to the chronicles.

Eduard Miralles, President of the Interarts Foundation Board of Trustees

newsletter Viability of Cyberkaris in its French version newsletter
newsletter
newsletter Since 2008, this newsletter has been published in Spanish, Catalan, English and French. Although the newsletter reaches over 6,000 subscribers, the number of those who prefer to receive this publication in French has, of lated, decreased. For this reason Interarts is studying the viability of this version for next year and, during these last months of 2014, will bear attention as to a possible increase in subscriptions in this specific language: reaching the target of 1,000 subscribers would allow us to continue publishing the French version in the future. From here, Interarts calls its subscribers to spread this information among contacts interested in French language and cultural issues, cultural policy cooperation, cultural economy, etc. Should Interarts decide to stop publishing the newsletter in French from January 2015, it will give the option to its subscribers in this language to receive the newsletter in another of the languages provided (Spanish, Catalan or English). newsletter
