‘We are as we look’ is a cycle directed by Paula Bonet that combines literature and painting. Through conversations between authors, readings of texts and live painting, it seeks to teach us how the gaze influences thought. In this second event on February 22, we will have the presence of the well-known writer and journalist Anna Maria Iglesia and the award-winning Galician writer Cristina Sánchez-Andrade. Under the direction of the event by Paula Bonet herself, the authors will talk about how images influence their texts, taking various examples as reference. On the colloquium table, the public will be able to see on the screens in the room the notes, drawings and paintings that Paula will be taking in her notebooks.
