The pandemic and lockdown have served as a reminder to us of how important it is to maintain the right exercise routine, even from our own sitting rooms. And what began as a necessity might become a trend, with people worried about going to gyms, sports centres and swimming pools for the good of their health. What's more, thanks to a multitude of apps and digital platforms dedicated to sport, it's easier than ever.
The COVID-19 pandemic has not only changed our daily lives in this annus horribilis that has been 2020, but has also left us without the sporting event par excellence: the Olympic Games. In 2021, one year late, Tokyo will host the event and will feature new Olympic sports, including surfing, sport climbing, skateboarding, baseball and karate.
Iberdrola is sponsoring the exhibition Bilbao y la pintura (Bilbao and painting), a collection of works produced between the end of the 19th Century and the beginning of the 20th — a period in which the capital of Biscay began an unstoppable process of modernisation —. Its curator, Kosme de Barañano, introduces us to the fundamentals of the exhibition and transports us to a bubbling Bilbao, the seed of the modern-day city.
The curator Lola Durán Úcar recreates, in the exhibition La Gran Bóveda de Aldeadávila (The Great Vault of Aldeadávila), the monumental work of the sculptor Pablo Serrano, who succeeded in harmonising nature and technology. Durán feels that now more than ever - with COVID-19 taking its toll - artistic creation is needed, because art can calm this widespread despondency. And she approaches the exhibit with this enthusiasm, so that the visitor can witness the commitment of its creator to the human race, its existence and its circumstances.
As the world population closes in on 8 billion, the old "buy, use, throw away" paradigm of the linear economy no longer makes any sense and is driving us towards an uncertain future. Realisation of this has led to the emergence of eco-design, a production perspective that consists of integrating environmental protection criteria into every phase: from conception to development, from transport to recycling.
