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.
With this programme, La Capella helps to meet artists’ financial and production needs while closely following the discursive lines of art today.
Any questions regarding this call, please contact La Capella on: firstname.lastname@example.org

Interested artists have until 2 May at 11 am to fill in the participation form.
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.
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.

Talk Trouble is an exhibition showing different lines of research focused on structures and systems of speech circulation. A linguistic, sonorous and performative axis which expands to different registers such as the text, the object or the installation.
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.
