From 16th to 30th September, 2018
Venue: Avda. de la Constitución
The Fundación Tres Culturas del Mediterráneo (Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation), based on the legacy left by peaceful coexistence of three cultures and three monotheistic religions (Islamic, Jewish and Christian) of the Mediterranean in Andalusia, encourages the organisation of activities and projects to contribute to mutual knowledge, exchanges and cooperation between the different Mediterranean countries, societies and cultures. At the same time, it works to promote progressive creation in the Mediterranean of an area of peace and stability, of shared prosperity and of dialogue between cultures and civilisations. Along the Avenida de la Constitución in the centre of Seville, spectators will be able to immerse themselves in the ‘Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation: the culture of tolerance’ exhibition and visit the history of the Fundación Tres Culturas del Mediterráneo foundation from its creation until current times, with activities and events that have defined and continue to define the Foundation’s work. They will also have the chance to discover some of the most important figures who have taken part and shared their work with the institution over its now considerable lifespan. This exhibition, curated by the Fundación Tres Culturas del Mediterráneo, consists mainly of photographic work developed by photographer Anna Elías and others for the Foundation. A collection of images that represents the spirit of this institution, the conductive thread apparent in each and every one of its actions that consists of promoting dialogue and understanding between the people and the cultures of the Mediterranean. That’s why we at the Fundación Tres Culturas foundation believe that culture is the best vehicle for dialogue in a complicated political context. In times in which confrontation and exacerbation of particularities provoke continual conflicts and situations of exclusion and marginalization, the Fundación Tres Culturas del Mediterráneo foundation has assumed a commitment to promoting coexistence between cultures and religions through mutual knowledge and the exchange of ideas and experiences that encourage a rapprochement between the peoples of the Mediterranean.
