SEPHARAD – Hidden Memory.
Memory is a connection between past and present always haunted by silences and omissions. What does it mean to look at Sepharad from the present? Which elements of the past of Jewish Spain can we recover from destruction and oblivion? Daniel Quintero’s “Sephardic Portraits” are a paradigmatic example of the willingness of today’s Spain to look again, with new eyes, at Sepharad. In these portraits, Quintero composes a dance of memory in which present-day citizens embody figures of Spain’s Jewish past: Samuel Halevi, Benjamín de Tudela, Ibn Gabirol, Najmánides, Gracia Mendes, Maimónides. Other portraits pay homage to leading members of today’s Sephardic community. This project contains a two-way challenge: seeing in the present the traces that survived, and that today exist in Spain, of a past that people tried to erase, and also seeing in the past the remnants of faces, gestures, actions and lives that define us today.
