Shot opportunistically on the set of Jesús Franco’s Count Dracula, Pere Portabella’s parasite film shows us what images are doing to us, and how much we can do with them, given the ample ingredients of a well-known cinematic typology. A landmark of Spanish anti-establishment experimental cinema of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the film is, in Portabella’s own words, 'a film within a film, a discourse within a discourse, in other words, a ‘bloodsucking film’ of another.' Filmed provocatively in 16mm with sound negative, Cuadecuc, vampir simultaneously reveals and revels in the strange 'fantasmatic materialism' inherent in both the constructive mechanisms of magic in mainstream narrative cinema, and that of clandestine politico-aesthetic strategies employed by avant-garde filmmakers under the Franco regime.

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
