Open Source Conference: Javier Jaén

29 June - 21:00h MACBA Auditorium Free-access activity until capacity is full

What’s the best thing that can happen to an idea? For designer Javier Jaén to draw a picture of it. But what could be even better? For Jaén himself to explain it to you. We will have the opportunity to enjoy just that in this year’s tenth edition of the festival, in a deluxe Open Source session with our beloved Javier Jaén, the author of the ten images that are the face of the BccN Barcelona Creative Commons Film Festival. A unique moment for Javier Jaén himself to open a window into his infinite visual world, in an atmosphere of closeness and trust.

Javier Jaén Benavides (Barcelona, 1983) studied Advertising Graphics and Fine Arts in Barcelona, New York and Budapest. He works as a media, publishing and cultural communication illustrator. In his work he uses language that is symbolic, playful and laden with double-meanings. He looks for narrative scenarios that are set in a context close to him and related to his daily experience. He has worked for The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, Time, Harvard University, National Geographic, Greenpeace, Penguin Random House, Vueling Airlines, UNESCO, Camper, Solvia and Louis Vuitton, among others.

He has not written a child, planted a book or given birth to a tree yet.
Everything is still pending.
