Third element: ‘phenomena of disintegration and de-assimilation’

Yto Barrada’s exhibition on the 1960 Agadir earthquake made a lasting impression on me. I saw it at the Barbican, without the supporting actors. A text by Mohammed Khaïr-Eddine was an ignition for this work.

Pío del Río-Hortega, born in Portillo, trained by Nicolás Achúcarro, spent 3 months at the Middlesex Hospital in London in 1915 and cut an isolated figure in the late 1910s. We are nearly in the centenary of his bringing of microglia into sharp focus. It took another 10 years for him to reconcile with Cajal.
