This project has been comissioned by LOOP and produced by A-Place in collaboration with European Union.
La carpa aims to investigate the process of construction, use and disappearance of a removable theater installed at the end of the sixties in l’Hospitalet de Llobregat, the work of the Murcian architect Emilio Pérez Piñero. This research is based on the account of direct testimonies: neighbors, city council workers and relatives of the architect. Being temporary and ephemeral, many of Emilio Pérez Piñero’s works only survive in memory, like a ghost, but the case of La carpa is special because its current whereabouts are unknown.
Co-financed with funds from the Creative Europe Program and the project A-PLACE. Linking places through networked artistic practices.
