A research in the archives of The Fundació Antoni Tàpies has allowed to reconstruct the Barcelona critical portrait that conveys the exhibitions dedicated by the Center, to the course of the nineties, to krysztof Wodiczko, Craigie Horsfield and Hans Haacke. Thus, the city already put in evidence a number of problems, the concentration of corporate capital, real estate speculation, managing migration, erosion of the idea of the public sphere… – that the later years have accentuated. Through the recent work of different artists and collectives, the project “Barcelona Inspira” (Barcelona Inspires) proposes an update to all these questions.

YO, MISIL

Collective Exhibition
Sant Lluc, Mercaders 42, 08003 Barcelona, Spain
May 26 – 31, 2014 / Opening: May 26 / 19:30 hr

As a curatorial project developed from the Guasch Coranty collection and in collaboration with the MACBA (Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona), “I, Missile” offers an open reading in personal, social and political terms, about the idea of ​​vital trajectory, equally subject to determination, convention and, of course, inevitable deviations and drifts towards the unexpected. The process can be derived from a failure as a result of a system error or a renunciation to the established conditions. In either case it involves a capacity of empowerment that activates the politic power of the subject.

Curatorial Team: Caterina Almirall, Blanca del Río, Mariella Franzoni, Lidia Gónzález Alija, Antonella Medici, Javier Moreno López, Asunción Paterna, Georgia Theologi, Jordi Vernis
Coordination: Olga Sureda
Collaboration: MACBA, Fundació Guasch Coranty

PERDER EL NORTE [tentativa #2]

Collective Exhibition
Club Cronopios, Fernandina 16, Barcelona, Spain
February 15, 2014 / 19:00 – 22:00 hr

Más allá de una cierta tendencia en incluir los márgenes a través de un mapa sospechosamente integrador, se necesitan nuevas estrategias para generar una zona de encuentro donde identidad y alteridad puedan permanecer en estado de potencia y resistir al sometimiento de lo hegemónico. Si como indica Jean-François Lyotard, únicamente el disenso es capaz de evitar la subordinación (Lyotard 1988), para generar una experiencia de emancipación, se hace estrictamente necesario resituarnos en el mapa más allá de lo pactadao, resituarnos en el mapa perdiendo el norte.

Perder el Norte es una iniciativa de disenso frente a las políticas de representación hegemónicas, que se articula a través de una series de actividades discontinuas organizadas desde el beneficio de la periferia, y que persigue habilitar una perspectiva crítica para imaginar un futuro que no haya sido pactado. Perder el norte [tentantiva #2] pretende generar un espacio para la discusión a través de diferentes propuestas que exploren estas cuestiones.
