“In this chaotic, incomprehensible and semi-apocalyptic world that we have to inhabit, we are happy to continue being here, standing and with all the handle to celebrate a new birthday. And if it is about wishes, we close our eyes and ask for a new year of cultural teamwork, full of diverse projects, challenges and, as always, accompanied by all of you: the people who live in our house every day”.

About the book
The book is an extensive essay in which Andrés addresses the phenomenon of superheroes from different perspectives: their evolution over the decades, their impact on popular culture, the internal logic of the stories… There are more “hard-standing” sections », others more theoretical and others more controversial, but it seems to me that anyone who is interested in the subject of superheroes is going to get hooked, whether they have 40 years of reading comics behind them, or simply get excited about the series and movies.

The Spain Córdoba Cultural Center together with the Epistolary Documentation Center presents the multimedia exhibition:
cards for memory
Available from March 23 to April 22
The letter that remains as a testimony of the time of silence and darkness is transformed into a cry and light, the traces of resistance of a memory marked by fire. From those lines hang not only heartless words, but also the present body of the person who wrote it.
The exhibition can be visited free of charge at the CCEC (Entre Ríos 40) during the usual opening hours of the house, from Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 21:30.
About the sample:
The intimate traces in the form of letters that cross distances and times, generally come to moderate the restlessness of brief, circumstantial absences. But what happens when that absence is infinitely more painful, constant? The letter that remains as a testimony of the time of silence and darkness is transformed into a cry and light, the traces of resistance of a memory marked by fire. From those lines hang not only heartless words, but also the present body of the person who wrote it.
Letters from missing men and women are exhibited here, transforming the past into a constant present, testifying to commitment and also to love; Letters from family members are also shown that persist as a prayer over time, and become an echo of that memory, correspondence with the struggle from the hereafter, life drive; and political letters, cries that are amplified through the mimeograph, the graphic press and, more recently, digital networks.
These letters about the last military dictatorship in Argentina breathe like that body that resists suffocation. Rather, they are oxygen that keeps the flame of good memory alive.
