Sharing processes: exhibition about collaborative projects

Sharing processes avoids aestheticizing collaborative practice. It consists of ten documentation spaces in which visitors can immerse themselves in 15 projects: through videos and through texts that reflect on the residencies, but as well as other materials such as objects and photographs that have been generated through the course of the projects.

Sharing processes is composed of:

  • Affect 2015, with Agora Collective Berlin and several artists.

Artistic research from sound and musical practice

Workshop proposal: Artistic research from sound and musical practice by Enrique Tomás and members of the 'Ensemble Container'. Curator, Alberto Bernal

The search for answers can motivate research processes in varied areas of knowledge. For example in philosophy, poetry, biology, art, physics or music. Research in general, regardless of motivation and methods, is part of that search for knowledge. The only

AVLab Meeting February 2018. VANG#5. DISOBEDIENCES IN SOUND

Panel and Performance

Disobediences in sound is a musical exploration of the convergence between sound, noise and resistance. Noise as a sound image that denies a pre-established (musical? social?) order, thus exposing other (utopic?) places for an aesthetic experience. Disobedience as a radical position, as dissidence, as the maximum consequence of a (sound?) resistance, and also as a search in the aesthetic field of that utopia that is denied to us from the social sphere.

Initiated by Duo Hellqvist / Amaral (violin and piano) with the composer and sound artist Alberto Bernal, the project

AVLab Meeting, March 2018. IN-SONORA 10: Sonic and interactive art festival, 10th edition.

This AVLab meeting will begin with the presentation of the work of the resident Gabi Schaffner, whose residence within IN-SONORA 10 seeks to put a different perspective on the role that nature and a lifestyle closer to nature play in the cities through gardens and urban gardens. Her work as a sound artist uses the radio as a creative vehicle to communicate this look to nature.

Her work will be developed in collaboration with local artists and those people interested in the subject who have shown interest to work with through an open call to participate in her work during her residency.
