Ethelbert, King & Martyr: Hereford’s Patron Saint

Hay Festival 2019, 

Hereford Cathedral is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and St Ethelbert the King. But who was St Ethelbert? He played a significant role in the development of the church in Mercia. Following his beheading by King Offa in 794 pilgrims flocked to his shrine in Hereford Cathedral, which became a place of healing. Medieval writers elaborated stories of the saint and, although there are no traces of his original shrine, his story lives on and says important things about life and faith today. Tavinor is Dean of Hereford Cathedral.

José Alejandro Restrepo in conversation with Juan David Correa

Cartagena 2018, 

José Alejandro Restrepo is one of the most consolidated creators of national contemporary art. During his studies in the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris he had personal contact with thinkers such as Deleuze and Foucault, became interested in their approaches and discovered the work of emblematic video artists such as Bill Viola and Gary Hill, who asserted his interest in video instalations as the proper means for his research. Since 1988 he has become a pioneer using this technique in Colombia. His work´s second basic aspect is the profound investigation he carries out into national history. He displays his works regularly throughout Europe, Latin America and the US.
