They organized an important Basque event on March 11 in the University of Liverpool, under the Manuel Irujo Chair, called Hybridity and new networks: contemporary critical interventions; the topics were focused on the artistic Basque productions and hibridity.

This year, the Visiting Research Fellow, whose research interests focus on the interaction between memory, literature and visual culture is Nerea Arruti.

The event gathered several filmmakers, writers, art critics and academics. Film screenings and poetry performances were alternated with analysis and discussion of current artistic practices in the Basque realm.

About twenty-five people took part in the Basque event, and they created some dicussions spaces to deepen on the hibridity and contemporary Basque culture. Among others, the colloquium of the director Oskar Alegria (Emak Bakia) and the reading session of Ixiar Rozas (Beltzuria) were really successful.

On the other hand, the conferences of Peio Aguirre (The Poetics of the Non-group) and Harkaitz Cano (Is the Contemporary Artist a Kleptomaniac?) generated interesting discussions, and Liverpool is now eager to know more about the quality of Basque art and contemporary literature.
