IN SEARCH OF DUENDE on Fanzine

This new series on Fanzine features reviews and meditations on contemporary art reflecting the ideas of
Federico García Lorca’s essay “Theory and Play of the Duende“:

“The duende is a force not a labour, a struggle not a thought. I heard an old maestro of the guitar say: ‘The duende is not in the throat: the duende surges up, inside, from the soles of the feet.’ Meaning, it’s not a question of skill, but of a style that’s truly alive: meaning, it’s in the veins: meaning, it’s of the most ancient culture of immediate creation.”
