The theme of this year joints the cultural event Picasso 1973 – 2023 that is taking part on a global scale.

This cultural event commemorates the 50th anniversary of Picasso’s death. Málaga is Picasso’s birthplace, and the city was a significant influence on his career. This year, the summer school reflects upon his figure and artistic production, analyzing it from different perspectives. We will explore through particular projects carried out in every track benefits and problems when applying computational technologies to study and analyze his prolific production.

We will also want to discuss the black hole that Picasso’s production represents in the context of the digital culture due to copyright issues and envision solutions to overcome this problem. In addition, we will have the opportunity to visit in life the quarters, urban landscapes, and neighborhoods that Picasso knew in his infancy and that influenced his creative eye, and directly confront with the artworks currently on display in Picasso’s BirhtPlace Museum and Museo Picasso Málaga.
