La cultura como instrumento en las relaciones internacionales

Conferencia de Ángeles González-Sinde

(Ex-Ministra de Cultura de España)

Por Alberto Aznar Traval, Instituto para la Diplomacia Cultural.

En esta ocasión, queremos compartir con vosotros la conferencia a cargo de Ángeles González-Sinde, ex-Ministra de Cultura de España, que el pasado diciembre tuvimos la ocasión de disfrutar en el Instituto para la Diplomacia Cultural. Durante la conferencia, la ex-Ministra realizó algunas reflexiones sobre las relaciones entre política y cultura así como la importancia de la cultura y la educación en la construcción del espacio público.

Entre otras ideas, Ángeles González-Sinde indica el potencial del cine, el teatro y la cultura en general para crear y difundir la propia cultura de cada país, y como dichas oportunidades culturales pueden brindar oportunidades económicas.

En este sentido, la ex-Ministra cuenta la curiosidad de como en determinados lugares o ciudades la cultura puede ser considerada, de facto, como la ‘industria’ o ‘fabrica’ al ser el principal creador de riqueza. Y habla de los ejemplos, en España, de la ciudad de Toledo o de las pinturas de Goya o Velázquez.

Como conclusión, Ángeles González-Sinde deja la reflexión de que, pese a que la cultura deba colaborar con la empresa privada y el mercado para brindar oportunidades económicas, no podemos olvidar que la ética y el bien común deben ser la base de la Diplomacia Cultural.

Conference from Ángeles González-Sinde

(Former Minister of Culture of Spain)

By Alberto Aznar Traval, Institute for Cultural Diplomacy.

On this occasion, we want to share with you the lecture by Angeles Gonzalez-Sinde, former Minister of Culture of Spain, who last December we had the opportunity to enjoy at the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. During the conference, the former Minister made ​​some reflections on the relationship between politics and culture and the importance of culture and education in the construction of public space.

Among other ideas, Angeles Gonzalez-Sinde indicates the potential of film, theater and culture in general to create and disseminate the culture itself of each country, and how these cultural opportunities can provide economic opportunities.

In this sense, the former Minister has the curiosity of how in certain places or cities culture can be considered, de facto, as the ‘industry’ or ‘factory’ as the main creator of wealth. And speaking of the examples, in Spain, in the city of Toledo or the paintings of Goya and Velázquez.

In conclusion, Angeles Gonzalez-Sinde leaves the reflection that, although the culture should collaborate with private enterprise and the market to provide economic opportunities, we can not forget that ethics and the common good should be the basis of Cultural Diplomacy .
