Combining the models of an experimental art school and an artist residency 'Campus' is a temporary, free, bilingual and unaccredited art school, a pilot project devoted to the reflection and exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge.
Between the 4–29 July, the Espai Cultural Caja Madrid, Barcelona, becomes a hybrid school in which four working sessions are held during consecutive weeks, under the guidance of five international artists – Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson, Renata Lucas, Peter Piller y Adrià Julià – (+ info...working sessions). 'Campus' aims to create a point of encounter for young artists born in 1980 or after, working in diverse artistic disciplines. On Friday 29 July, 19.30h an exhibition will open, concluding and documenting four weeks of working sessions. (+ info...)
Coinciding with the beginning of 'Campus', Latitudes organised 2 conferences "Around 'Campus': Four case studies of art education", with the participation of Bartomeu Marí (Director, Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona); Jennifer Teets (Independent curator and writer, París); Carles Guerra (Director, La Virreina Centro de la Imagen, Barcelona) and Prof. Nikolaus Hirsch (Rector, Städelschule, Frankfurt-am-Main) which presented art programmes from Amsterdam, México D.F., Los Angeles and Frankfurt. – Audio recordings available here.
