Latitudes congratulate Joan Morey, one of the eight beneficiaries of the 27th edition of the Botín Foundation's International Visual Arts Grants. His project ‘LA INFLUYENTE’ will be exhibited at the Botín Centre in 2021. 
‘LA INFLUYENTE’ is a research and artistic creation project around the mechanisms of conversion of the body into symbolic capital, a speculative element and product of veneration, which takes the relics of Saint Teresa of Ávila as its starting point.

Desiring machine, working machine", Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona - Fabra i Coats, 27 September 2018. Curated by Latitudes. Photo: Noemi Jariod. Courtesy the artist.


Last year, Latitudes curated Morey's three-venue project ‘COLLAPSE’ presented at the Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona - Fabra i Coats (20 September 2018–13 January 2019), the Centre d'art Tecla Sala in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat (15 November 2018–13 January 2019), and a new site-specific performance presented at the former prison La Model (10 January 2019) in Barcelona's Eixample district.

A year earlier, the artists Antoni Hervàs and Anna Moreno were also beneficiaries of the Botín Foundation visual arts grant. Both Moreno and Hervàs were awarded Barcelona Producció Visual Arts grants in 2017 and 2016, respectively, and both their projects were tutored by Latitudes.

Presentación de la publicación “The Drowned Giant” de Anna Moreno
A cargo de la artista Anna Moreno y el arquitecto e investigador Lluís A. Casanovas

Col·legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC)
Sala de actos, 1r piso
Plaça Nova 5, 08002 Barcelona
 
En 1970 se organizó un happening en Moratalaz (Madrid) para promocionar el proyecto de vivienda utópica La Ciudad en el Espacio, del arquitecto Ricardo Bofill. Un evento que nunca se llegó a documentar, un proyecto que nunca se llegó a construir. El pasado 7 de junio, la artista
Anna Moreno repitió aquel happening en el mismo lugar.

El 22 de noviembre, en la Sala de Actos del
Col·legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC), se presentará un LP con el registro sonoro del proceso de restitución, la única documentación existente del evento. 

El disco contiene los testimonios de Gila Dohle, The Downton Alligators, Enrique Doza, Peter Hodgkinson, Anna Moreno, JC Ramone, Toti Soler y Ramón Del Solo, entre otros. La edición incluye un libreto con relatos de ficción escritos por los arquitectos Paula Currás & Havi Navarro, la comisaria María Montero, el experto en blues Ramón del Solo y la artista Anna Moreno.

Lluís A. Casanovas Blanco es arquitecto y comisario afincado entre Nueva York y Barcelona. Actualmente es investigador en Princeton University (NY, EEUU). Junto con la agencia After Belonging fue uno de los comisarios en jefe de la Trienal de Arquitectura de Oslo (2016).


Anna Moreno (Barcelona, 1984) vive y trabaja entre Barcelona y La Haya (Países Bajos). Su práctica artística se desarrolla a través de acontecimientos expandidos y exposiciones individuales, como ‘D’ahir d’abans d’ahir de l’altre abans d’ahir i més d’abans encara’ (Blueproject Foundation, Barcelona, 2016), ‘The Whole World Was Singing¸ (HIAP Project Space, Helsinki, 2016) o ‘An Awkward Game’ (1646, La Haya, 2015). Entre las exposiciones colectivas en las que ha participado cabe destacar: ‘En los cantos nos diluimos’ (Sala de Arte Joven, Madrid, 2017), ‘Distopía General’ (Reales Atarazanas, Valencia, 2017), ‘CAPITALOCEAN’ (W139, ÁmBerdam, 2016), ‘Lo que ha de venir ya ha llegado’ (CAAC, Sevilla; MUSAC, León, y Koldo Mitxelena, Sebastián, todas en 2015) y ‘Generaciones’ (La Casa Encendida, Madrid, 2014). Su obra se ha incluido en el marco de simposios como ‘Visual Activism’¸ (SFMOMA, San Francisco, 2014) o ‘United We Organize’ (Stroom Den Haag, La Haya, 2013). Ha participado en residencias como ‘Artistas en residencia’ (CA2M y La Casa Encendida, MóBoles y Madrid, 2017), Seoul Art Space Geumcheon (Seúl, 2012) o Atelierhaus Salzamt (Linz, 2011), entre otros. Es profesora de investigación artística en la Royal Academy of Art de La Haya, donde es miembro fundador de Helicopter, una iniciativa dirigida por artistas enfocada a la experimentación y al intercambio de conocimientos.

Cover Story – August 2017: Walden 7; or, life in Sant Just Desvern


The August 2017 Monthly Cover Story "Walden 7; or, life in Sant Just Desvern" is now up on www.lttds.org after this month it will be archived here

"Anna Moreno is waving from the roof of Walden 7, the vertiginous sixteen-storey apartment complex designed by architect Ricardo Bofill in 1975. Hola Anna, què fas!? Looming out of the greenery far below is another extraordinary building that we visited earlier in the day. La Fábrica is a former cement works whose silos and cavernous “cathedral” are home to Bofill’s Taller de Arquitectura. It is 29°C and the humidity is at 62% in Sant Just Desvern, west of Barcelona. Two rooftop swimming pools provide a refreshing respite. We don’t complain." Continue reading
