BCN Producció

BCN Producció 2017 is beginning the process to select proposals for its tenth edition. Aimed at the artistic community of Barcelona and its area of influence, this open process fosters the creation of projects that require resources for production and institutional support in order to become reality.

David Mutiloa
Tuesday, 18 July, 2017 to Monday, 25 September, 2017
Exhibition

David Mutiloa looks back at the transformations that have taken place in recent decades in the dynamics of manufacturing work: the digitising of its procresses, the fractalising of its times and spaces, the absorption of cognitive and affective faculties, etc. Throughout much of the 20th century, workers struggled to attain a social condition that would enable them to escape the alienation caused by work, but this aspiration for self-realisation ended up integrating perfectly into the production chain, giving rise to a widespread constant state of depression. SYNTHESIS aims to trace the genesis of this change, taking it as the turning point in which the origins of contemporary tragedy reside.

Digital environments

NOTES ON A NOVEL (THAT I AM NOT GOING TO WRITE) OR THE SWIMMING POOL, OR THE HAIR, THE HERB AND THE BREAD, OR THE TOMATO PLANT is Irene Solà's project for Barcelona Producció for digital environments.

NOTES ON A NOVEL is a project about seeds that never grow, or about planting an apple tree but growing a tomato plant. It is the preparation for a novel that no one any longer intends to write. It is a novel that was never written and everything it could have been. It is a project about writing in the digital era, as the notes for this novel are going to be written online in a public folder on Google Drive. It is a meta-novel made up of all the plots, snippets and fragments, dialogues, notes and ides, and discarded material that were never braided. And it is also a swimming pool full of thoughts, books, articles, conversations, questions, discoveries, investigations, anecdotes and stories.

NOTES ON A NOVEL, from September 18, 2017, at notesonanovel.com

Matteo Guidi
Wednesday, 11 October, 2017 to Sunday, 7 January, 2018
Sala Petita

We see a drawing of a man holding a pole in the centrepiece of this exhibition. Is it a ghost that he is relating to? And who is this man? What i he trying to do? He seems to be poking in the fog, but maybe he is just someone doing something practical that he was ordered to do, like remove a piece of fabric. Or is it a flag and he is waving it? And if it is a flag, what colour is it? It looks white. So maybe he is surrending. And what if what matters is not so much what he is moving or removing, but what he might find under the fabric?

Matteo guidi gives us few hints with the title of his work Remover con una vara de madera (Moving with a wooden pole). And neither of the two black and white pieces displayed in the dark and grey exhibition hall seem to give any clues: an illuminated retro photograph of what seems like a dirty corner of a warehouse and the video projection of a hand-drawn animation loop.

Sala Gran

Visit

To expand on the exhibition, Matteo Guidi has organised a tour of the Center of Collections of the city's history museum guided by Jorge Luis Marzo. The purpose of the tour is to use the case from which Remover con una vara de madera departs to reflect on the ghosts hounding the memory of our country, those that we buried so quickly and deeply.

Very limited places.

Please confirm your reservation at: lacapella@bcn.cat
