Home Ludens Ludens is an exhibition and symposium which looks into the expressions of play in contemporary culture and examines the formations of "magic circles" in our digital time. Focusing on play, rather than games, the Exhibition constitutes a setting that embraces different practices and approaches by artists who address, describe or comment on today's play. Play is being reversed and reformed. It carries social and political issues and becomes a tool for critique and social change. By connecting the virtual and the real, it opens new spaces for communication and action. Its ability to approach and fuse into other disciplines gives birth to new forms of art and play. Complementing the Exhibition, the International Symposium aims to situate the framework of contemporary play, and show its multiple expressions in today's activities and functions. This catalogue also contains the re-release of the Gameworld and Playware exhibitions and covers therefore the complete trilogy about videogames and art at LABoral Centre de Arte y Creacion Industrial.

This book provides both for academic historians and the general reader a broad perspective on Darwin's impact in the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds. In Latin American countries with black and Amerindian populations, evolutionary theory was quickly mobilized for theorizing racial differences, while in Spain attention was focused on class differentiation, explained by a series of Darwinian, Social Darwinist, and Eugenic hypotheses. The wide variety of approaches to evolutionary and social theory in countries whose culture was very similar points illuminates those issues thought to be of particular significance for national identity, whether political, ethnic, or racial.
