Experiences Culture

Culture

Puerto Rico’s culture is a lively mix of Taíno, African, and Spanish influences. This fusion extends to almost every aspect of Puerto Rican life: our rich cuisine, colorful arts and crafts, vibrant music, and traditional festivals.

You’ll experience this diversity anywhere you look, listen, and taste. Our museums feature both European classics and Afro-Caribbean sculpture. Our buildings blend traditional colonial styles with a bright palette of colors. Our music brings together instruments, rhythms and sounds from eras and places as distant from each other as 18th century West Africa and medieval Spain.

Puerto Rico’s yearly calendar is teeming with mesmerizing cultural events, such as the Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián that mark the end of Christmas in the winter to the Puerto Rico Heineken JazzFest that brings together international Latin jazz stars during the spring. But no matter when you come, our culture will be all around you.

Spotlight:
Old San Juan

Different examples of Puerto Rican arts and crafts reflect the diversity of its cultural heritage. There are the vejigante masks that represent benevolent spirits found in African religions. There are hand-carved saints taken directly from our Spanish Catholic tradition. Then there’s mundillo, an ancient Taíno lace-making technique. Museums around the island exhibit Puerto Rico’s unique variety of identities in their maximum artistic expression.

Casa del Libro

A small but priceless gem in Old San Juan, the House of the Book, or Casa del Libro, is a must-visit for any book-lover. Among its treasures are documents signed by Catholic monarchs dating back to Columbus’s second voyage in 1493 and over 300 volumes from the 15th century.

Children’s Museum

The playful yet instructive Museo del Niño is a favorite destination for kids of all ages. With exhibits that include a mini TV studio, a children-only town, and a variety of exhibits that educate children about science, health, music and art, the museum is a unique and delightful attraction in Old San Juan.

Our world has entered a constant state of emergency. We are continually confronted with pictures of climate change, political upheavals, and collapsing infrastructures. We hear the sounds of panic: financial crises, epidemic plagues, and spectacular kidnappings. We watch scenes of panic, rescue missions, and security activities as if they were fiction. Indeed, these stories of disaster could be taken for Hollywood movies. Are we the heroes in a catastrophe movie? The anti-heroes? Are our lives a worst-case-scenario? Experts, curious onlookers and participants staring at the catastrophe and asking themselves: "Did we survive?" Kathrin Röggla reflects on the narration of catastrophe. She analyzes the language of panic, the jargon-laden rhetoric of experts, and the delusive doublespeak of security, creating an artisitic echo of the sounds of apocalypse.

Let’s see if the forests catch fire again. Let’s see if intense heat rushes toward us. Let’s see if smoke drives animals whose names we don’t know out of the bushes. Let’s see if that leaves behind a spell of silence. Let’s see if rain sets in, pushed across the country by a black wind. Let’s see if masses of water slam against bridges or dams have long been broken. Let’s see if fragments of buildings fall down on us. Yeah, let’s see if it all comes tumbling down and a cloud of dust rushes toward us absorbing all color. Let’s see if cars roll over and sheets of metal scrape together. Let’s see if there’s a power line across the roadway. Let’s see if they stand on a bridge again and look down, a stone’s throw from situations they don’t really understand. Let’s see if they move on to other things out of boredom. Let’s see if something happens again.

1 st session: the minutes have gone missing. Presumably they were lost in connection with the events surrounding Paul Kirchstätter.

2 nd session: conference room 7 of the Safitel hotel, Pico Boulevard, West LA, Monday, September 23, 4:30 pm, attendees: Gerd Pregler (CEO, Geosick GmbH), Berit Strebitz (Head of RD department, Murmur-Chemistry), Faisal Aslan (Architect), Ricarda Vierzig (Structural Department of Ministry of National Infrastructures), Marko Keglevic (EU Liaison at Eastern Structural Funds Subsidies),Marianne Gerhardt (Baumuck AG), Karl Voss (Physicist, Mainz University), and the recording secretary. After the disappearance of Paul Kirchstätte (“Disaster Tourism” agency), Herr Pregler kindly offered to take over as moderator.
