It is a photography exhibition by Álvaro Pérez Mulas on Linguistic Twist and Visual Paradox. His photographs try to capture the details in everyday objects in an urban sphere and make visible the details that usually go unnoticed. If you have a taste for photography (other than clicking selfies), this is the place to be. Visit the Instituto Cervantes at 48, Hanuman Road, Connaught Place, and visit any day till the 23rd of August!

MUSIC
