ARGENTINA En aniversario de Mafalda, Quino pide "vivir en paz"
A-AA+ Publicado el domingo 14 de setiembre del 2014 a las 16:06 hs
A punto de festejar el 50 cumpleaños de Mafalda, Joaquín Salvador Lavado, "Quino" pidió este domingo como deseos que Argentina y el mundo "salgan adelante" y "vivamos todos en paz", durante la inauguración de una muestra en Buenos Aires sobre su personaje más popular. "El mundo según Mafalda" refleja a través de viñetas la visión de esa niña curiosa y rebelde sobre los problemas que acechan a nuestro planeta, al que a veces considera enfermo, otras sucio, triste y al que incluso trata de embellecer aplicándole las cremas de su madre.

Aunque las guerras del siglo XXI son otras que las que inquietaban a la pequeña Mafalda décadas atrás, Quino lamentó que sigan existiendo y consideró que es un…

...... RENE MAGRITTE: EL SURREALISMO Y EL REALISMO MAGICO
Magritte dotó al surrealismo de una carga conceptual basada en el juego de imágenes ambiguas y su significado denotado a través de palabras poniendo en cuestión la relación entre un objeto pintado y el real.

René François Ghislain Magritte fue un pintor surrealista belga. Conocido por sus ingeniosas y provocativas imágenes, pretendía con su trabajo cambiar la percepción precondicionada de la realidad y forzar al observador a hacerse hipersensitivo a su ent…

PICKED: Beautiful Short Film for World Water Dayby 
Today is the 19th annual World Water Day and French nonprofit Solidarités International marks the occasion with a beautiful short film to raise awareness about safe drinking water: It’s estimated that 3.6 million people, of which 1.5 million are children under 5, die of diseases caused by water contamination every year, making it the world’s leading cause of death. Yet both the public and political leaders remain largely unaware and thus unlikely to take action against this preventable epidemic. This film, produced by agency BDDP Unlimited and directed by young director, illustrator, musician and photographer Clément Beauvais, is both a moving reminder about the importance of this fundamental substance and a specific call to action for journalists to spread awareness about it and appeal to readers to sign a petition that will be personally handed to t…

Waterlife: Exquisite Illustrations of Marine Creatures Based on Indian Folk Artby 
From walls to paper, or what the eye of the octopus has to do with swans and women’s role in the arts. I’ve been a longtime fan of independent Indian publisher Tara Books, who for the past 16 years has been giving voice to marginalized art and literature through a commune of artists, writers, and designers collaborating on remarkable handmade books, including I Like CatsDo!, and Tara’s crown jewel, The Night Life of Trees. But now comes what’s positively the most exquisite book I’ve ever held in my hands: Waterlife by artist Rambharos Jha, who explores the marine wonderland through vibrant Mithila art, a form of folk painting from Bihar in eastern India. 'The Lobster's Secret' 'Crocodile Smile' 'Snake Festival' Jha writes: I was born in the culture-rich district of Darbanga, in the Mithila r…

Según el argentino, basta preguntarse por qué un determinado cuento es malo. No es malo por el tema, porque en literatura no hay temas buenos ni temas malos, hay solamente un buen o un mal tratamiento del tema. Tampoco es malo porque los personajes carecen de interés, ya que hasta una piedra es interesante cuando de ella se ocupan un Henry James o un Franz Kafka. Uno de los mejores cuentistas latinoamericanos y, además, uno de los máximos exponentes del Boom Latinoamericano, dijo sobre el cuento casi todo lo que los narradores contemporáneos definen como tal, fue él uno de los grandes cimientos del relato corto contemporáneo y comparaba al cuento con una esfera; es algo, decía, que tiene un cicl…
