PROJECT IN RESIDENCE
The project Image/Sound: Concept and Position took place in a Barcelona characterised by great cultural and social diversity, in collaboration with local people involved in the cultural and social life of the city.
The project presented a selection of artists reflecting on artistic practice and the relationship between the construction of identity and economic, social, political and historical conditions.
The participative process and the invitation of 12 artists revealed a diversity of working processes and ways of visibilising the work (video, presentations, exhibitions), including work by participating teams from the Faculty of Fine Art of the University of Barcelona, the Roue Libre y Bösediva project.
The project took place in three phases: two exhibitions and a workshop.

Using an assembly process it was designed to test spontaneous and open participation processes.
