I am really happy to accept the invitation to support via this blog Articket Barcelona: the one pass to the best art in the city.

Children aged 16 and under do not have to pay if they are accompanied by an adult with an ArticketBCN Art Passport. Children aged 16 and under will be given a Boarding Pass so that they too can get it stamped at the museums they visit, just like the adults do with their ArticketBCN Art Passport.
And there are so much more details curated with love to the art and the city of Barcelona.
6 museums included:
Fundació Joan Miró
Fundació Antoni Tápies
Culturadas is an affiliate partner with Articket Barcelona.
I’ve recently been invited to the new Exclusive Tour in Casa de les Punxes. Since the place is getting pretty instagrammable, I decided to accept the invitation and share here some tips on how to get the most out of this tour when you next visit Barcelona.
“Creativity is the new currency.”
According to the World Economic Forum creative thinking will be third on the list of the most important skills needed to survive and thrive in the fourth industrial revolution.
The Culturadas pop-up project’s mission is to:
establish a deep connection between children and art;
inspire kids and encourage children’s creativity;
create dialogue about the place of art in our life;
provide strong educational value
Culturadas pop up stops in different places. At each stop it adapts its format and content depending on the size of the space and the purpose of the collaboration at hand, however, each time it has the same goal: to familiarize children with art and with great world artists; to stimulate children’s imaginations; to encourage children’s creativity by expanding their knowledge and improving their self-esteem.
We are celebrating our second Christmas in Barcelona with this beautiful dried orange Christmas decoration. It´s easy to make and is perfect for toddles.
I’ve had a lot of fun to myself these days since the thought occurred to me that even I have something in common with Nicole Kidman. Apart from a man in my past who fancied her in his dreams and me in reality, the other thing we have in common is that we’ve both stood in front of Stasy Kara’s camera and microphone. And what is it that connects me and Stasy? Now that I come to think of it, nothing but fun and memorable moments.
Аssen is one of the most precious things I’ve inherited from the Spanish High School. A truly dear person to me, whom I’ve been proud to call ‘friend’ for 20 years already. We’re linked by one of those undemanding friendships in which communication can come to a standstill for a year or two after which we meet and share our most coveted secrets just as if we’d never parted for a moment. Currently he has established himself in a U.S. university where he teaches Spanish language to students specialising in ‘Latin American Literature and Culture’; he travels, publishes, researches the connections between cinema, literature and sexuality in the countries of the southern hemisphere and he does all this with incredible ease but also with great passion, which he transmits to his students and friends. Here I share a conversation about his journey from the Spanish High School to the bookshops of Buenos Aires and in general about some of the things we love and which connect us.
We quickly discovered a common language with the Brazilian Tadeu Bianconi, a melodic mixture of Spanish and Portuguese. What also connects us is the way in which he sees Latin America. For me what was valuable in his exhibition was that I saw his ‘map of the look’, the look of a person who is from there, of a person who lives, sees, feels and perceives like the people he is photographing.
(FROM MY CONVERSATION WITH HIM):
These pictures were taken in the course of various journeys of mine, some for leisure, some for work. In Guatemala, for example, I was there for work, but the photos I was sent there for were supposed to be in colour. The ones you see here were done in my free time. In Guatemala it was really nice, I really feel like going back there some day. Overall, I’d really like to resume my travels in Latin America.
Miriam is from Mexico but lives here in Sofia. She gladly responded to my invitation to be a guest on this blog and opened the doors of her home to me, something which is very personal and which I immensely appreciate. Our meeting began with this conversation, after which we carried on chatting about countless topics in her kitchen and this unforgettable morning on which I had the feeling that I was in Mexico concluded with the preparation and consumption of a magical Mexican taco.
Miriam, many, many thanks to you for acquainting me in a single day with the colours, flavours and aromas of Mexico.
This is part of my meeting with her: Miriam and her home:
