A Body’s Journal 

More information of the Festival’s exhibitions and activities, and to know more about the programme of the City Screen

Through a wide range of exhibitions, screenings and performances all over the city of Barcelona from November 9 to 21, this year’s edition of the Festival will explore the potential of the body as a tool for communication and self-representation, and as a catalyst for collective change. 

The title is a reference to Daniel Pennac’s novel Journal d’un corps (2012). By advocating for the literary genre of the diary, the author tells the life story of the protagonist through the perspective of their sentient body, celebrating it as the ever-changing mirror of one’s being in the world.

An ever growing network of collaborators

Every year, the festival’s programme is put together thanks to the engagement of an ever growing community of artists, curators and museum directors. This edition sees the participation of many practitioners living and working in Barcelona, or that have developed a strong relationship with the city. Among them: María Alcaide, Laura Arensburg, blanca arias, Valentina Alvarado Matos, David Bestué, Julia Calvo, Natalia Carminati, Lúa Coderch, Roser Corella, Regina de Miguel, Anna Dot, Arash Fayez, Esther Ferrer, Barbara Held, Citlali Hernández, Francesca Llopis, Daniel Moreno Roldán, Núria Nia, Aimar Pérez Galí, Marta Polo Ysalgué, Comité Queer, Laura Ramírez Ashbaugh, Mireia Sallarès, Martí Sancliment, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, Pedro Torres, Carlos Vásquez Méndez, Laia Ventayol, Adriana Vila Guevara and Helena Vinent.
