Senatore’s participatory art combines the process of participation in the work through various disciplines. The dimension of the work allows the audience to receive and interpret different viewpoints. The video Jammin’ Drama Project is freely inspired by Love Stream, the 1984 film directed by John Cassavetes. This work unities representatives of the various communities living in Harlem, from African-Americans to Hispanics. Invited by the artist through an open call, the members of these sometimes separated groups and very proud of their identity, worked to create a scenario that was then played by two professional actors in front of the authors. The project is a participatory work of art conceived as a work in progress aimed at putting together different communities that live together in the same territory, to show the processes through which they are able to coexist without giving up their own identity.

Cecilia Bengolea is a multidisciplinary artist working with video, performance and sculpture, whose practice is focused on anthropological research of community dance forms that are both contemporary and archaic. She’s particularly interested in the relation to nature, elements, animist beliefs and choreographed figuration. She embraces collaboration to build a broader body of work whilst perceiving dance and performance as an animated sculpture that allows her to become both subject and object within her own work.

Dorian Sari and Rosa Tharrats are restless, curious beings, who constantly question nature and culture and how they both appreciate bodies and minds and the relationships that are used between them. This is also driven by emotion, and the connections between beings of multiple nature. (...) The space they share is inhabited by a flourish of elements, of characters, who seem to free themselves from a silence imposed by silent cinema in which they live and that threatens to settle among us.

Exhibitions: Just because. In the blink of an eye. Curator: Andrea Rodriguez Novoa

Over family footage shot in Tripoli in the early ‘60s, the artist father’s voice explains his couscous recipe in Italian. While he talks, an English text appears on the left side of the screen. This text is not the translation into English of her father’s recipe, but rather a sort of emotional decoding of it. Using an imaginary dictionary, the artist translates his culinary love into a sort of musical score.

School of non work – 1st of May is an itinerant research project, with various collaborations, to explore and present experiences related to problematic aspects of artistic practice (and life in general) as "work". It is organized to show content that takes different forms: texts, debates, educational actions, editorial production, installations, printed and archival material. On display, these forms are combined to activate materials that reflect the modes of organization and acquisition of knowledge within the same practice. On that occasion, the video "1st of May" filmed during 2020 in the streets of Geneva, the cradle of Calvinism, is presented.

Departing from Avital’s self-filmed art-testimony which he transformed into a cantus firmus, inviting artists to dialogue with him, expressing their intimate emotions through voice and gesture – the most fundamental forms of human expression. Replicating the aesthetics of the virality, the artwork travel throughout the globe, forming infinite ensembles and constellations.

This exhibition is about post-capitalist bodies, those that struggle to remove the massacre of the system of control and surplus value that is inscribed in them. The selection of videos by different artists that is presented, explores how to decongest bodies and recover the intensities crushed by phallocentrism, the identity of the image, or the construction of a self that dances to the rhythm of production structures.

His vision of the creative act, since as a child he was dazzled by the collection boxes of Agapito Borrás games, shocked in his youth by the hypnagogic visions, by the transformism of Leopoldo Fregoli and by the illusionist ability of magicians.

A 2001 photograph has been animated to give a new visibility to the actual reality of Cuban people 20 years later. Prolongación del Deseo (20 años después) departs from a picture made in 2001 merging hundreds of photos taken to a line for ice cream in Havana from morning to night. Now, i decided to turn it into a video for several reasons: the situation in Cuba right now, the fact you cant take photos to these big lines, and the video format allows us to experience the expanded time i want to transmit. This is the best portrait I could do to Cuban society right now.

Vera's work, developed under the impact of Iraq's war in 2003, exhibits the artist receiving imaginary slaps on her face while interspersing images of the war taken from different mass media. Like many of the artist's works, the manipulation and appropriation of the contents taken from the newspapers, serve as material to carry out a series of critical and poetic proposals.

This piece features iconic football faces engraved on effervescent tablets dissolved in water that emulate the effervescence of the passion of the public who shouts the goal. This iconography is contrasted with a totalitarian one through the allusion to the Chilean “Mission Accomplished” medal, which establishes a link between the sporting frenzy and the political manipulation of the masses.

Joaquim Puigvert, photographer and amateur filmmaker, in 1958 began to experiment with abstraction, making Ex 1, 2 and 3 films in which instead of using a camera he acted directly on the celluloid surface. His conception and intervention make his films in which gestural, automatism are very present, we can relate them, with the avant-garde, with abstract expressionism, with subjective photography or Norman McLaren's films, more than with the cinema that It was made in Spain.

Indoor images is a group show, curated by Aurélien Le Genissel, that analyzes the new forms of production of images derived from social media and homemade projects. Heirs of the DIY philisophy and the amateur videos from the beginning of the videoart, these 'indoor images', as the title said, have nowadays a new importance thanks to the digital platforms, the different lockdowns and a low cost of production that allows to create new narratives and a fresh vocabulary in a more independent way.

Praise for Oblivion is a conceptual project that shows the transition between a sharp memory to the abstraction of memories. Inspired by Junichiro Tanizaki, with his book In Praise of the Shadow, Anna Bresolí came to this project through the fascination that she always has felt for how we define what is ugly or what is beautiful, according to the society and time in which we live. Oblivion is seen as a shadow, a dark refuge of the human mind that is inaccessible and therefore uncomfortable.

This video by Ballen depicts a half-human, half-rat creature living in isolation from society. The character, motivated by his loneliness, tries to create new companions to share his daily life, but the isolation generates feelings of frustration and anger. Roger the Rat personifies the impact of loneliness, exclusion and the uncomfortable feeling of suffocation that afflicts human beings when confined in enclosed spaces. The psychic consequences of the pandemic are explored throughout the images through the absurd actions of the protagonist, which produce a feeling of identification and empathy on the part of the visitors.

Saccomazzone is a game of seventeenth-century origins where two players on a pedestal hit each other with a strip of cloth while maintaining a constant distance between them. Whoever is hit the most loses. This game, very popular in the past, is often present in paintings and sculptures. In the Boboli Gardens in Florence there is a statue of Saccomazzone players, sculpted by Orazio Mochi in 1620 based on a drawing by Romolo del Tadda.

MONTERO & PISUERGA, “VIENTO DE CRISTAL”: Using glass objects and sounds, she achieves a visual and auditory construction that evokes the experience of a journey through a repeating horizon. A kind of mantra that reverberates within us its eagerness to create the experience of a landscape. MARIA ROMERO, “AMOR DE MADRE”: “Two parallel projections + 50 impressions 10 × 15 cm with frames and texts that build a film sequence on paper. In one of the projections: mother's love; in another, the love of the children from an imprint on their skins, the tattoo "mother's love". The third element, a discarded sequence printed on paper from outer stories.” Image: María Romero, "Amor De Madre"

An exhibition around a science fiction story written by the artist during the strange month of April 2020. A series of watercolours and a film place us in a future in which the colonization of space has been taking place for several centuries. The protagonist, a biologist, is being held due to a pandemic in a hotel on a planet halfway between Earth and the planet Exile on which she is doing her thesis. We enter a universe that portrays multispecies beings, insects, masks, necklaces, or representations of the cosmos, like animistic totems that appeal to codependence.
