The exhibition All the Imagined Places –Scepticism, Relativity and Simulacrum– is a proyect derives in two opposing theories that need each other in order to exist, the utopia and the distopia, and is presented as a reflection on our present time that also aims to assess the future in store for us, drawing spectators into a kind a new time-territory that ignores the rigid system in which we live and move and instead gives free rein to imagination and individual creativity. It is done taking of a reference Gaston Bachelard's essential postulates on poetic daydreaming as our guide, where images are only presented to us in their pure, immutable form in a state which he calls "poetic daydreaming": a whole series of preconceived notions about the lived environment, principally the concept of the "home", which pertain to cultural tradition and can only be accessed through imagination, memory or daydreams.

It is a group show with an intensely theatrical mise-en-scène designed to seduce visitors and make them actors in a performance based on scepticism, relativity and the simulacrum of the image.

The exhibition is curated by Sara Blanco, whose essays are featured in the accompanying catalogue.
