Open Research Zone Subtramas

November 16, 23, 28 and 30; December 13, 14 and 21, 2012 /
Sabatini Building, Workshops, and La Trasera-Faculty of Fine Arts of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid

The Open Research Zone Subtramas is a series of activities programmed in connection with an art research project exploring the processes and methodologies involved in collaborative audiovisual creation. The program features a review of past experiences, from the 1970s up through current practices. In all of them, images take part in the formation of symbolic spaces that are conducive to the collective production of emotions, subjectivities and autonomous forms of relationality.

Each week, during the months of November and December, projections and project presentations by researchers, artists and cultural producers will be held. How do these creators approach and activate collaborative processes in their audiovisual productions? How much of a political and social transformation dimension do such processes have?

Shown during the 100 days prior to the second round of the presidential elections in France in 2012, at the rate of one film per day, these creations attempt, each in their own way, to understand the history of our relations as the foundations of the political and also to imagine what the future has in store for them.

Diary of a Collaboration
Presentation of the project with the presence of the Catenaria Collective, formed by researchers at the Museo Reina Sofía Study Centre. The collective promotes debate about questions related to collaboration, so as to give visibility to and invert the mechanisms that establish the prevailing criteria regarding conduct in museums.
Remodelling La Paz
Presentation of a project carried out by students from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Universidad de Murcia and Pedro Ortuño, artist and professor at the same institution.
This is a collaborative audiovisual project carried out as part of the class Interventions in urban and natural space. It focuses on La Paz, a working class neighbourhood in Murcia that is known for its cultural diversity and its controversial nature. For years the city council has had plans for an urban remodelling project here, plans which will no doubt alter the neighbourhood's identity.
