TEA Tenerife Space of Arts welcomes on Friday 7, at 18:30 hours, the presentation of the book "Los fantasmas de los guanches. Fantología en las crónicas de la Conquista y la Anticonquista de Canarias" (The ghosts of the Guanches. Phanthology on the Conquest and Anti-conquest of the Canary Islands chronicles), by Roberto Gil Hernández (Los Realejos, 1985). Admission is free until seating capacity is reached..

The presentation of this work will count with the presence of the artistic director of TEA, Gilberto González; the Associate Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of La Laguna, Marina Barreto; the Professor of Aesthetics and Art Theory at the University of La Laguna, José Díaz Cuyás; and the author himself. In "Los fantasmas de los guanches. Fantología en las crónicas de la Conquista y la Anticonquista de Canarias", Roberto Gil Hernández points out that the Conquest of the Canary Islands did not end in the 15th century. The war that confronted Guanches and Castilians ceased, but the recurrent absence of their ghosts did not. Six centuries of chronicle on the Conquest and the "Anti-conquest" support this hypothesis. Six centuries dedicated to emphasise or demolish the qualities of both sides from fields such as history, visual arts, archaeology, music or cinema, as well as anthropology, literature or biology.
