According to many recent studies, studying the Humanities benefits society, individuals and employers. IE Humanities Week 2019 will explore why Humanities matter through a series of  workshops, speaker sessions, panels, debates, off-campus arts exhibitions, and more.

Atomic Energy and the Arrogance of Man: Revisiting the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster
FRIDAY MARCH 22ND 2019, NEW TIME 9.30 to 11 am
ROOM F001 (MARIA DE MOLINA 2, MADRID)

On the morning of April 26, 1986, the world witnessed the worst nuclear disaster in history: the explosion of a reactor at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Soviet Ukraine. Dozens died of radiation poisoning, fallout contaminated half the continent, and thousands fell ill. This lecture will draw on new sources to lay bare the flaws of the Soviet nuclear industry, tracing the disaster to the authoritarian character of Communist party rule, the regime’s control of scientific information, and its emphasis on economic development over all else. Today, the risk of another Chernobyl, claims Plokhii, looms in the mismanagement of nuclear power in the developing world.

Serhii Plokhii is the Mykhailo Hrushevsky Professor of Ukrainian History and the director of the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University. Author of several well received books, including, The Last Empire: The Final Days of the Soviet Union (2014), The Gates of Europe: A History of Ukraine (2015) and Lost Kingdom: The Quest for Empire and the Making of the Russian Nation (New York, 2017). His most recent book, Chernobyl: A History of Tragedy won the UK Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction in November 2018.

Coffee and refreshements will be served afterwards

Daniel Canogar, the internationally respected Spanish artist, recently held a creative experimentation and project development workshop at the Quintanar Palace in Segovia. The workshop was a joint venture between IE School of Architecture and Design, the architecture school of IE University where Canogar teaches, and the Quintanar de Segovia Palace, a center of innovation and development for design and culture under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the regional government of Castilla y León.

The workshop was attended by second-year students from IE University’s Architecture degree program, along with exchange students from Northeastern University in Boston. During the three-ie-university-students-working-with-daniel-canogar-2day workshop, which began on November 28, students produced a series of artistic installations that came together in a final project presented on the final day. All work was created in the Quintanar Palace, where they are still on display, most of them on the first floor.

Canogar’s work is on show at Madrid’s Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, the Museum of Natural History in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon. In addition, he has created installations for public spaces such as Storming Times Square in New York or at the headquarters of the Council of the European Union.

“This workshop addressed the practice of artistic installations; this medium is especially suitable for architecture students, as it allows them to “build” in a freer, more experimental, and more risky way, which is what the professional world will require from them later,” said Canogar.

“Because these are temporary installations, students have been able to focus on conceptual considerations and social issues, instead of the technical concerns normally required by the profession,” added Canogar, explaining that three elements defined the workshop: the use of found or waste materials, the rapid execution of projects and teamwork, “which is essential to ensure that projects come to fruition.”

The aim of Canogar’s experimentation workshop was to generate an exchange of ideas around creative projects in process. “The synergy of several knowledgeable, respectful but critical perspectives is an invaluable instrument for the development of any creative activity,” the organizers noted. “This allows students to their work from the outside, listening to ideas and connections that perhaps were inherent in their work but that they were not fully aware of.”

He has created numerous public art pieces, including Pulse, at Zachry Engineering Education Complex Texas A&M University (College Station, 2018); Tendril, a permanent sculptural LED screen for Tampa International Airport (Tampa, 2017); Travesias, a sculptural LED screen commissioned for the atrium of the European Union Council during the Spanish Presidency of the European Union (Brussels, 2010); Constellations, the largest photo-mosaic in Europe created for two pedestrian bridges over the Manzanares River, in MRío Park (Madrid, 2010) and Asalto, a series of video-projections presented on various emblematic monuments including Storming Times Square, a projection screened on 47 of the LED billboards in Times Square (New York, 2014), the Arcos de Lapa in Rio de Janeiro, the Puerta de Alcalá in Madrid and the church of San Pietro in Montorio in Rome (2009).
