The exhibition 'Just Transition: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow' of La Térmica Cultural begins its itinerancy in Asturias

  • El Pozo Sotón is the first stop in the itinerancy of this exhibition, which opened in Ponferrada on March 31.
  • It is a photographic exhibition that brings together the realities and experiences of just transition zones.

This Friday 15th begins at the Pozo Sotón in San Martín del Rey Aurelio (Asturias) the itinerant exhibition Just Transition: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. The exhibition, La Térmica Cultural's own creation, premiered last March 31 coinciding with the opening of this facility in Ponferrada and is part of a collection of temporary exhibitions designed to bring art and culture to these areas. Thus, Asturias is the first point in the itinerancy of this exhibition throughout Spain. El Pozo Sotón, a coal mine in the middle of the Asturian mining basin, will host this temporary exhibition until October 8, when it will move to another area of just transition: the Guadiato Valley in Córdoba.

The temporary exhibition Just Transition: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow brings visitors closer to the reality of the areas immersed in the energy transition processes and the strategies adopted by these territories, with an eminent industrial past, to adapt to the new context.

Thus, the exhibition reflects how to face the economic, social and climatic challenges of the present, but without forgetting the past, preserving the mining and energy identity and seeking the opportunity to make this past compatible with the search for alternatives for the future. This is the spirit of this participatory exhibition that narrates the impact and adaptation models of territories in transition so that they can be understood by a wide public. The exhibition consists of 24 panels with photographs by Eduardo Urdangaray, creator and head of the Mining History Archive and photojournalist with a career spanning more than 30 years in the main Asturian media.
