Originary from Peru, Einer Rodriguez came to Eibar 12 years ago and fell in love with the Basque countryside. Now, a collection of his photos will travel back to be displayed in the center of Trujillo (Peru), at the seat of the BBVA Foundation.
According to the author, this is an excellent showcase for the exhibition which shows panoramics of the Basque environment. The coast, traditional and contemporary architecture, caves and even warehouse, everything is possible in the collection of Rodriguez.
The exhibition has also a special section to show the evolution of Eibar. For this, the Peruvian architect has collaborated with the photographer José Ronco.

As a result of the joint work between the Etxepare Basque Institute and the Mintzanet platform -of the group Maramara*- Basque artists and agents will offer, training sessions from the Basque Coutnry to the Institute students at international universitites, beginning tomorrow.
This project aims to enrich the academic offer of the Basque Language and Culture readerships of the Institute in 35 worldwide universities, and also to disseminate our culture further. The sessions will be done through the Mintzanet platform, created to give an opportunity to those who wish to practice Basque language and talk to other people through the internet. The virtual lessons will be recorded and later offered online.
The Institute readers were given the chance to ask for the participation of artists and agents of any culture sphere. In the first season the names chosen have been the writers Mark Kurlansky, Eider Rodriguez, Unai Elorriaga, Itxaro Borda, Arantxa Urretabizkaia y Karmele Jaio, the professors Iván Igartua and Iñaki Martinez de Luna and the verse improviser Miren Amuriza. They will offer training sessions to university students in France, USA, Poland, Czech Republic, Catalonia, Germany and Italy about several subjects: Basque language, language policies, hitory, translation, literature, cinema or Basque verse improvising.
It was established in 2013 and its goal is to promote specialised study and research. It began with classes on the great Basque artist Eduardo Chillida and during the academic year 2014-2015 it plans to organise an international conference on the artist.
The chair is located in the History of Art Institute at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt and classes form part of Curatorial Studies, administered by the same Institute; furthermore, the Frankfurt Library of Art houses the entire bibliography on the artist in his own section, thereby becoming a point of reference for scholars of his work.
It annually invites a prestigious scholar to offer a seminar or a series of talks. Moreover, the faculty will hold a top-level biannual international symposium on Eduardo Chillida’s work.
