iD#5 Seized Cities. Exhibition. La Capella, Barcelona
15 July - 12 September
Idensitat is an art project developed in various cities with the intention of providing the tools to coordinate creative projects that influence the public sphere in relation to the region. Establishing a production and research network, this platform acts within the field of artistic creation in order to experiment with new forms of involvement and interaction in different social settings.
This exhibition brings together several projects that were part of the fifth edition of Idensitat. They were developed in Calaf, Manresa, Mataró, Sondika, El Priorat and Barcelona. The interventions that took place in each of these cities included creative activities of varying size and scale; each with their own unique targets but also aimed at influencing aspects that deal with collective actions that take place locally. On the whole, they represent artistic experiences that seek specific negotiation elements within local contexts, striving for a mutual exchange of knowledge while remaining open to the creative potential of every participant.
A series of activities were carried out parallel to these actions, including workshops, public interventions (in both rural and urban spaces), energising dynamics, the creation of forums to debate local and guest proposals for action; past experience was discussed and we managed to expose some of the conflict latent in the public sphere. In this exhibition, this collection of projects created in different places and at different times aspires to a way of relating to one another and to turn this space-time into processes, a common ground. More and more, Idensitat is becoming a keystone in the network of project relations, local areas and people that consider creative dynamics a way to intervene and affect social spaces.
For this reason, “iD#5: Ciutats Intervingudes” presents artists and collective projects as well as mediating projects and production spaces as a whole. They make up a network that allows for the coexistence of a variety of creative processes with a similar transformative drive, influencing towns, neighbourhoods and cities little by little, while creating pressure on the future of cultural politics.
