Arte Útil – Tour, discussion and conversations with AU artists

Broadcasting the archive #6 – Barcelona

Broadcasting the archive is a project aiming at emancipate the usership around the Arte Útil archive. The project re-activates and mediates the archive within and beyond the museum’s context, developing a year touring programme of workshops and discussions hosted by different organisations worldwide.

Archive cards, sound and video documents, interviews, guided tours through some projects, production of public events, activities, workshops, seminars and conferences will be the materials to activate and spread the archive. Broadcasting the archive will break the physical walls of the institution through a call for action, becoming a source of inspiration both for a specialized public as well as a non-trained contemporary art audience.

On Saturday 25th at 10:00 am Avalancha collective will led a tour of Raval neighbourhood followed by a discussion at MACBA at 15:30 pm involving some local constituencies as well as international guests.

On Sunday 26th June at 11:00 am at MACBA there will be a series of Skype chats with some artist involved in the Arte Útil archive discussing some case studies related to gentrification, the use of public space as a common good and the Arte Útil Criteria. Confirmed guests: The Umbrella, Núria Güell (Skype), Ruben Santiago, Valentina Maini (Skype).

The event is FREE, we will meet in front of MACBA for the tour on Saturday.

Broadcasting the archive is an independent project conceived by Gemma Medina Estupiñán and Alessandra Saviotti and supported by the Mondriaan Fund and the Art of Impact, to emancipate the usership around the Arte Útil archive.
