The group show ‘Things Things Say’ (Coses que les coses diuen) and the solo exhibition ‘Tone Tongue Mouth’ (‘to llengua boca’) by Dutch artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh open concurrently at Fabra i Coats: Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona on Saturday 17 October 2020 from 12 pm.

Things Things Say
Fabra i Coats: Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona
17 October 2020 – 17 January 2021
Curated by Latitudes


An exhibition with works by Adrià Julià (1974, lives in Barcelona and Bergen), Annette Kelm (1975, lives in Berlin), James N. Kienitz Wilkins (1983, lives in New York), Sarah Ortmeyer (1980, lives in Vienna), Eulàlia Rovira (1985, lives in Barcelona), Francesc Serra i Dimas (1877–1967, Barcelona), Stuart Whipps (1979, lives in Birmingham), Haegue Yang (1971, lives in Berlin and Seoul), as well as meaningful things from the Friends of Fabra i Coats archive.

Do you trust things to write human history? Do things’ lives matter? Can a pebble destroy an empire if the emperor chokes at dinner? Would the pebble stand accused? Do you really think that if you stare at something long enough, it will reveal its secrets? Have you ever wondered why there is a hole in a donut? Did you ever own a pair of dungarees? Does a desire to write about a small car indicate some fear of its inadequacy? Does popcorn hold firm opinions? Is the key key? Are you familiar with the Luddites? Have you heard the expressions “how long is a piece of string?”, or “exceptional typical”?

The exhibition ‘Things Things Say’ springs from the past of Fabra i Coats as an industrial complex once dedicated to the manufacturing of cotton thread. The factory represented the first merger between a Catalan company and a foreign multinational and the first in Spain to offer its workers paid holidays. The exhibition evokes this novel and curious kind of place, a place comprised of many places and people, vastly different scales, temporalities, and values. Things, and spectres of things, that might at first seem exceptionally normal, apparently obsolete, or inert, each bring often-extraordinary stories or offer telling evidence, temporarily becoming new protagonists in the art centre community.

In the setting of the bygone factory, the works in the exhibition introduce a perspective on how the modern world has been shaped through complex and contentious relationships between humans and the web of life. Taking on the popular XVIII century genre of the ‘it-narrative’ in English literature and the approach of ‘object journalism’ against a background of world history and ecology, ‘Things Things Say’ and the exhibition ‘4.543 billion. The Matter of Matter’ (CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux, 2017–18) are imagined as a diptych: two folds with the same hinge that tacks back-and-forth between deep time and microhistory, natural history and the history of capitalism.

Actividad: ‘Del Año Miró (1968) al inventario de la donación’. Charla entre Rosa Maria Subirana Torrent y Lola Lasurt
ModeraÁngel Calvo Ulloa
Fecha: 15 de septiembre de 2020, de 19 a 21 h. Incluye una visita guiada a la exposición de 19 a 19.30h
Reserva: Aforo limitado. Imprescindible inscripción previa en [email protected]
Lugar: La Capella (c. Hospital 56, Barcelona)
Streaming en directo a partir de las 19.30h en el canal YouTube de Barcelona Cultura (duración: 1h 16min).

En el marco de la exposición Juego de niños, Lola Lasurt conversa con Rosa Maria Subirana Torrent, conservadora de los Museos de la Ciudad de Barcelona durante los últimos años de dictadura y testigo de primera mano del inicio de la gestión institucional del arte contemporáneo en Cataluña.

Bajo las órdenes del consistorio barcelonés, Subirana inventarió meticulosamente los fondos de las primeras colecciones de arte contemporáneo cedidas a la ciudad y coordinó el Año Miró, en el que se inscribió la organización de la exposición retrospectiva en el recinto del antiguo Hospital de la Santa Creu en 1968, así como otras actividades, entre ellas la colocación de una placa en el pasaje del Crèdit (donde nació Miró en 1893) y el Premio Miró para niños.

Miró donó a la ciudad parte de las obras presentadas en la exposición, que fueron trasladadas al Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC) para ser inventariadas y constituir el futuro fondo del CEAC (Centro de Estudios de Arte Contemporáneo), el edificio ideado por Josep Lluís Sert que se inauguró en 1975 en Montjuïc.

Esta actividad es parte del programa de mediación εξέδρα (exedra) dirigido por Jordi Ferreiro para la temporada Barcelona Producció 2019–20 de La CapellaJuego de niños de Lola Lasurt ha sido tutorizado por Latitudes.

Exposición ‘Juego de niños’ de Lola Lasurt, Barcelona Producció 2019-2020, 21 julio–27 septiembre 2020

(↑↓) Vistas de la exposición ‘Joc d'infants’ (Juego de niños) de Lola Lasurt en La Capella, Barcelona, 21 julio–27 septiembre 2020. Fotos: Pep Herrero / La Capella.

El proyecto Juego de niños de Lola Lasurt parte de la retrospectiva Miró. Barcelona 1968-69, la primera muestra de arte contemporáneo presentada entre entre noviembre de 1968 y enero de 1969, en el espacio actualmente conocido como La Capella

A través de pinturas, fotografía, vídeos y cerámicas, el proyecto de Lasurt aborda la agitación sociopolítica de finales de los sesenta a través de la figura del artista catalán Joan Miró (1893-1983), quien durante el último periodo de la dictadura de Franco se convirtió en un “objeto transicional”, una suerte de puente artístico entre el régimen anterior y la nueva democracia. [1]

En su nueva serie de pinturas Lasurt alude a dos formas de transición: un periodo de excepción tanto desde el punto de vista político como del desarrollo personal. Lasurt se apropia de imágenes relacionadas con la infancia publicadas en la prensa nacional durante el estado de excepción de dos meses que se inició a finales de enero de 1969, un período de ausencias y silencios forzados.

[1] El término objeto transicional fue acuñado en 1951 por el pediatra y psicoanalista inglés D. W. Winnicott para describir objetos reconfortantes –como ositos de peluche, mantas o muñecas– que sustituyen el vínculo madre-hijo en el desarrollo del niño.

















A partir de la exposición de Lasurt, el programa de mediación εξέδρα (Exedra) dirigido por Jordi Ferreiro ha generado una serie de deslocalizaciones a tres espacios públicos y privados del barrio del Raval con el fin que no se vean perjudicados por posibles protocolos de actuación ante COVID-19.

Así pues, ‘Juego de niños’ incorpora un pequeño tributo a esta obra mediante la deslocalización de una de sus pinturas animadas al estanco Carme 15 de la calle del Carme.

 
(24 septiembre) La tercera y última deslocalización coincide con la finalización de la exposición el 27 de septiembre 2020. Desde La Capella se hizo una llamada a los vecinos del distrito de Ciutat Vella ofreciendo la posibilidad de exponer en su balcón una obra de Lola Lasurt representando un objeto transicional de la infancia y presentarlo en formato banderola. 

Meritxell Mestre envió su historia relacionada con unos dibujos animados que solía mirar de pequeña en casa de sus abuelos y que gravaba en VHS, cuyo protagonista era una pequeña locomotora.

Latitudes's Mariana Cánepa Luna concludes her role as Secretary of the Board of Hangar


Hangar Centre de Producció i Recerca d'Arts Visuals, Barcelona

Between 2015 and 2019, Mariana Cánepa Luna of Latitudes has served as Secretary and Board member of the Fundació Privada AAVC, the entity governing Hangar Centre de Producció i Recerca d'Arts Visuals in Barcelona

The members of HANGAR’s Board represent a range of professionals from the fields of contemporary visual arts and research and serve for periods of 4 years. The board meets twice a year in ordinary sessions and in extraordinary circumstances whenever necessary. An Executive Committee meets on a monthly basis. The members of the Board do not receive any remuneration for the performance of their duties.

Besides the responsibility of overseeing the governance of the institution, during these past four years, the (initially 17 and in the last year 9) members have been responsible for the renewing two terms of the Programme Committee and in 2017 resolving the open call for a director position, selecting Lluís Nacenta as the new head of the institution (2018–22). 

In early 2019, the board decided to exceptionally extended its mandate another year and met on a monthly basis in order to define the election process for the new board starting February 2020An initial pool of twenty-eight candidates (artists and art professionals) was put forward for consideration to the Plataforma Assambleària d'Artistes de Catalunya (PAAC) and in their December 2019 assembly, the members voted for nine candidates following criteria of parity and a majority of artists. 

The newly elected board for the 2020–2024 term is: Pilar Bonet, Fito Conesa, Jordi Ferreiro, Dora García, Ingrid Guardiola, Hiuwai Chu, Mafe Moscoso, Laura Llevadot and Anna Pahissa.



Kudos to each of the board colleagues for their strong sense of fellowship throughout these past four years: president Martí Anson; vice-presidents Josep Manuel Berenguer, Álex Nogueras, Sonia Fernández Pan; members Pau Alsina, Mar Arza, Roger Bernat, Luz Broto, Jorge Luis Marzo, Martina Millà, Julia Montilla, Quim Packard, Joan Maria Soler, Alicia Vela, Marc Vives, Rubèn Verdú. Extended thanks to the legal advisors of the foundation, Jaume and Guillem Nadal, and of course to the two directors of the Foundation, Tere Badia (2009–17) and Lluís Nacenta (since 2018). 

Between June 2010 and December 2013, and together with Max Andrews, Latitudes was part of the Programme Committee alongside artists Dora García, Jordi Mitjà and Joan Vilapuig and the curator Alex Mitrani. This group was responsible for selecting applicants via open calls for production grants and residencies abroad, as well as in the selection of foreign artists to come to Hangar, and ultimately, followed up the work during their long or short-term residencies.

Latitudes' "out of office": wrap up of the 2018–2019 season

Seen in Malasaña, Madrid. Photo: @marianacanepaluna

This is our tenth ‘Out of Office’ post, a tradition which started with this 2008-9 post in pre-Facebook, pre-Twitter, pre-Instagram days. We’ve come a long way, but remain faithful to the idea of sharing behind-the-scenes moments. Below we share a selection of the art we’ve seen, the trips we had a chance to take, the conversations we began, the meals we shared, and (oh, we particularly love these) installation scenes. Subverting the institutional convention of the year-end report, our ‘out of office’ mixes official and unofficial photos, screengrabs and we-fies, even! Revision, reflection, remembrance, re-ignition. Create or die!

September 1, 2018: New season, new month, and new cover story on the Harald Szeemann exhibition in Bern (cover story archive here).
September 5, 2018: Launch of a new dispatch of ‘Incidents (of Travel)’ from Buenos Aires, Argentina. In this eighth episode, Móvil co-founder and curator Alejandra Aguado followed the itinerary devised by the artist Diego Bianchi around the self-regulated community Velatropa, the buzzing commercial area of Once, identifying human and non-human flows and interactions. This became an entry point for discussing Bianchi’s interests in how, as consumers, we define a particular zeitgeist and appropriate trends that enable us to affirm our identities.

Each of the 20 photographs is augmented by one or more extra assets – a brief commentary, a sound or a caption – accessed by clicking the words overlaying the images. 

‘Incidents (of Travel)’ is an ongoing editorial project edited by Latitudes and produced by KADIST. Earlier offline conversations have taken place in Chicago (USA), Jinja (Uganda), Suzhou (China), Lisbon (Portugal), Terengganu (Malaysia) and Yerevan (Armenia).


September 11–15, 2018: Installation and opening of the exhibition ‘Cream Cheese and Pretty Ribbons!’ at Martin Janda Gallery, Vienna. 

But before that, works like those by Eulàlia Rovira and Adrian Schindler were carefully crated and traveled to Vienna from their studio in Barcelona.

December 2–4, 2018: Short research trip to Madrid to visit exhibitions: group show ‘Querer parecer noche’ at the Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo in Móstoles; Lúa Coderch’s ‘La vida de O.’ at CentroCentro; comprehensive solo shows by Luigi Ghirri, Luis Camnitzer, Dorothea Tanning, and Dierk Schmidt at Museo Reina Sofia; Lina Bo Bardi at Fundación March; works by Portuguese artists Alexandre Estrela and João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva at La Casa Encendida; and a few solo exhibitions in commercial galleries such as David Goldblatt at Elba Benítez; Alejandro Cesarco in Parra & Romero; Eva Fàbregas at garcía galería; Enric Farrés Duran at NoguerasBlanchard and Daniel Jacoby at Maisterravalbuena. We also had time to squeeze in a visit to the Museo Geominero, a place we’ve long wanted to visit and never managed to find time for. And it didn’t disappoint. Highly recommended to everyone not only into minerals and stones but also nerds (as we are) on exhibition display and cabinets.

January 10, 2019, at 7pm: Performance ‘COLLAPSE. Schizophrenic Machine’ by Joan Morey. Performance structured in a prologue and five acts inside Barcelona’s La Model prison. A group of people was driven by coach to the location from each of the two art centres that hosted the first two parts of ‘COLLAPSE’. The performance was integrated into the architecture and the memory of the building, creating an imposing immersive experience. Public restricted by capacity to 113 spectators. Attendance had to be requested in advance and was subject to prior selection and the acceptance of specific rules and a strict dress code. More here.

February 26–March 1, 2019: Three intensive days navigating ARCOmadrid events. We enjoyed Reina Sofía’s exhibitions dedicated to Chicago-based artist H. C. Westermann (reviewed by Mariana in the April issue of L’Officiel Art International) and Mapa Teatro’s site-specific installation as part of the Fisuras programme; David Bestué’s solo show at García Galería; Catalina Lozano’s exhibition ‘Winning by Losing’ at CentroCentro; Charlotte Moth’s subtle play with three works from CA2M’s collection in Móstoles, and Armando Andrade Tudela also at CA2M.


Above and below: David Bestué solo show at García Galería, Madrid.
(Above and below): Following on from Joao Laia’s earlier exhibition ‘Transmissions from the Etherspace’ in the same institution, his latest exhibition ‘Drowning in a sea of data’ —despite the ubiquity of the topic of the incessant presence of technology and algorithms in our daily lives — included great works such as Clemens von Wedemeyer’s film and Tomasz Kowalski’s small canvases.

Downstairs the highlights of this year’s Generación 2019 were Susanna Inglada and Lucía P. Moreno.
 Catalina Lozano’s group exhibition ‘Winning by Losing’ at CentroCentro. Above: work by Patricia Esquivias. Below: Work by Asier Mendizábal and (next images) Jorge Satorre and Xavier Salaberría.
(Above and below) Bravo to Charlotte Moth’s subtle play with three pieces in CA2M’s collection in dialogue with some of her work. A highlight was the two-part theatre backdrop painted by Leonor Fini in the 1950s and commissioned by Antonio el Bailarín for the 1956 International Festival of Granada.

Cover Story–February 2019: Schizophrenic Machine

Latitudes' home page www.lttds.org

The February 2019 Monthly Cover Story “Schizophrenic machine” is now up on Latitudes' homepage: www.lttds.org


Schizophrenic machine, the concluding performance of the Latitudes-curated Joan Morey project COLLAPSE, took place on the freezing evening of 10 January. One hundred and thirteen pre-vetted audience members, each complying with a rigid all-black dress code, were driven by coach to the previously undisclosed location: the former La Model prison in Barcelona’s Eixample neighbourhood. More strictures were barked by a balaclava-clad doorman upon arrival: silence! single file! No mobile phones, no bathrooms, no chance to leave. The reverberation of a door slamming. More than two hours in the darkness and cold.

‘COLLAPSE. Schizophrenic Machine’ site-specific performance by Joan Morey at the former prison La Model, Barcelona, 10 January 2019

‘Schizophrenic Machine’ site-specific performance by Joan Morey at the former Panopticon-inspired prison La Model, Barcelona, 10 January 2019. © All photographs by Noemí Jariod. Courtesy of the artist.


Schizophrenic Machine’ was the closure of the three-part project ‘COLLAPSE’ by Joan Morey. This new site-specific performance took place on January 10, 2019, in the former prison La Modelo, a location that was kept in secret up until the 113 guests were driven in coaches from either Centre d'art Contemporani - Fabra i Coats, or the Centre d'art Tecla Sala

The audience previously registered to attend the closed-door performance and agreed to comply with the strict dress code. The performance script integrated the 1904 chilling architecture of the prison through voice and technological devices such as drones, surveillance cameras, strobe lighting, and an architecture scanning laser. Each one activated and deactivated the building's memories making ‘Schizophrenic Machine’ be Morey's first performance with no human actors as protagonists. ‘Schizophrenic Machine’ continued Morey's long-standing exploration of power structures and control of the body.



Schizophrenic Machine’ took the physical and discursive past of La Model as a scenario for performance where bodies were not acting and the protagonist was the architecture itself. The Panopticon-inspired prison was inaugurated on June 9, 1904, and was conceived as a model for the Spanish penitentiary system: an example of the reintegration of criminals into society through discipline, isolation and religious morality. La Model was one of the main sites of political repression and social control in the city. Followers of all political persuasion passed through its cells, aside from common criminals, yet during the long totalitarian dictatorship of General Franco (1939–1975), it was especially notorious as a site for the repression of political dissidents. La Model closed on June 8, 2017, 113 years after its inauguration


‘Schizophrenic Machine’ took over the unoccupied building and created a phantasmagoric presence that activated and deactivated its own memory. Conceived as an all-encompassing experience the event took on a singular awareness of the building and the site. The sequential dramatisation of its radial spaces articulated a dystopian representational device. A cast of technological interpreters —voices, sound, lights, cameras, drones and other devices— took the place of performing bodies. Moreover, the panopticon architecture itself seemed to address spectators through a female voice that spoke on the principles of control, power and the paradigm of a surveillance society. La Model became a schizophrenic machine, an imperious disciplinary mechanism for the 21st century. 

Produced by the Contemporary Art Center of Barcelona - Fabra i Coats as the third and final part of the ‘COLLAPSE’ project.
