Opening performance: 'Himno Nacional' (2011) by Fermín Jiménez Landa & Lee Welch in the context of their exhibition 'Amikejo' at the Laboratorio 987, MUSAC
Forming a journey loop from León to the island and back again, the musical representation of nationhood becomes an end in itself. During the exhibition opening, the 65+ musicians of the Agrupación Musical La Cena paraded through the streets of León (Plaza San Marcelo, Plaza Don Gutierre; Plaza San Martín; Plaza de Regla (in front of the cathedral); and Palacio de Botines) in what could be seen as a playful, ceremonial or military action, and perform an anthem that is familiar in its musical idiom and yet is completely unidentifiable". – Fermín Jiménez Landa
