TEA Tenerife Space of Arts welcomes, "Europe. That exotic place", an exhibition that displays works by Juan Botas Ghirlanda, Óscar Domínguez, Álvaro Fariña, Manuel González Méndez, Emile LaSalle, Juan Ismael, María Laura Benavente, Pérez y Requena, Pablo Estévez and Ángela Ruiz. It will be available until 20 October, from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 20:00 hours.

We can find numerous studies on how the image of the Canary Islands has been constructed in a changing way by European soldiers, writers, scientists, cartographers and artists since the 15th century. In addition to these, there are also numerous researches about the mentions of the Archipelago in European works of the most varied nature. This exhibition focuses on unravelling the implementation of an "aesthetic order" as a tool for social control in a game between what seems and does not seem European. We are thus looking at the manipulation of fragmented images that end up constructing a hierarchy of knowledge that hovers over economic and class interests.
