Until 18 September 2005. The Crculo de Bellas Artes presents the 'Universo Mestizo' exhibition, in which seven artists photograph the world without even leaving Madrid. Back in the 1980s, John Berger the writer, philosopher and art critic predicted the 21st century would be marked by massive migration that would render all great cities identical. But he was also referring to how multinationals would homogenize the identities of New York, London, Paris, Buenos Aires, Madrid, etc., twisting our traditions into a knot of compulsive consumerism. Today, we can see the world in the faces of our neighbours, and while Madrid may not have the greatest number of immigrants it does have the greatest diversity. With this exhibition, photographers Francis Tsang, Sofa Moro, Alfredo Cliz, Juan Ramn Puyol, Carma Casul, Jess Ubera and Diego Lpez have turned the novel of Jules Verne Around the world in 80 days into a photographic reality. The show features 150 portraits of people from as many countries, distinct in customs, hardships, dreams, plans and frustrations, together making Madrid a city of all races, religions, geographies and cultures.

Admission: 1. Tues-Fri 17.00- 21.00, Sat 11.00-14.00 & 17-21.00, Sun 11.00-14.00
