Kahlo, Chavela y más
Never just the wife of the famous Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo (1907 - 1954) was a well known artist on her own and a noticeable iconoclastic troublemaker. She is one of the greatest Latin American cultural icons.

She had to struggle against patriarchal, gender and social class obstacles; not to mention a terrible accident. Her story is a example of endurance, courage and strength.

She was affected by the roaring times in which she lived and, at the same time, she deeply contribute to shaping and changing them.

In this Tertulia / Class, we will explore the times of Kahlo and talk about some of her paintings. We will watch a movie about her live —Frida (2002) by Julie Taymor and and we will read and discuss several articles about her.

It will be fun.

Entre otras cosas tendremos:

• Una bellamente ilustrada, irreverente y desenfadada biografía de Kahlo de la mano de María Hesse que ya ha llegado a su décima cuarta edición.

Tina Modotti, una visita a la fotografía de Modotti y una conversación sobre su apasionante vida.

• La bella película Frida de Julie Taymor, basada en la biografía de Hayden Herrera, con Salma Hayek y Alfred Molina como protagonistas.

Además de su tormentuosa relación con el muralista Diego Rivera, Kahlo compatió su vida en México con otras extraordinarias mujeres en diferentes ámbitos de la vida cultural, política y artística... entre ellas la fotógrafa y activista itaiana afincada en México Tina Modotti, la fotógrafa mexicana Lola Álvarez Bravo... y la popular cantante Chavela Vargas...

Por supuesto, dedicaremos un buen tiempo a hablar de la Revolución Mexicana... también.


All the Spanish you need, for business, for traveling or just for fun.
