    Of breaking and ripping includes an exhibition and personal presentations of the projects and career paths of four artists – four who are five, since two of them work as one – who use public images or pre-existing codings grabbed from different sources and re-used to extract a third meaning. Who adopt, cite, twist and recontextualise the icons of popular culture and leisure consumption, with an implicit or explicit sense of criticism. This is the first instalment of Intermitents, a regular cycle of events that – with an open format – covers the practices of moving images or motion pictures on all supports and media, and in all their manifestations.

    Gardens of Cooperation is the first exhibition on Alexander Kluge in Spain and the only museum retrospective to date to cover his entire oeuvre in an international context.

    Alexander Kluge has overseen the show himself and provided a large amount of previously unseen materials, from both his personal archives and the documentary resources of his production company, Kairos-Film. All the audiovisual compilations on display have been specifically created by Alexander Kluge for La Virreina Centre de la Imatge.

    Along with this, in the context of Gardens of Cooperation, nine new short films are being premiered. These include Herbert Hausdorf: Brother of my Mother, The Opera Principle, Digital Night Sky over Paris on November 13, 2015: Dark and Mute, Time to Live Against Money, Ingeborg Bachmann: Homage to Maria Callas, Anatomy of a Centaur (According to Leonardo da Vinci), Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Triptychon and The Intestine Thinks.

    Like a letter of safe conduct, the name of Copi (1939-1987) has for years guaranteed entry to a club which is not necessarily restricted but certainly select, one for whose members the work of the Franco-Argentinian author is one of the most unusually radical reading experiences in recent decades.
