When? Sunday, September 11 from 4 pm to 7 pm
Where? Disseny Hub Barcelona
Maximun capacity 15 participants
The workshop explores the contemporary practices of creating photographic projects, considering shared experiences as activators of creative processes. The objective is to provide tools to shake up the individual artistic process and generate a space for experimentation in which to share artistic practice. We will address personal creative processes from cooperative experimentation based on techniques that use games and chance as a search engine.
The first part of the session will be devoted to developing creative liberation exercises through shared material, to then go deeper into the material of the participants. This material, which may or may not be part of a closed photographic project, will be worked on with the aim of resignifying it and generating new narratives through the contributions of the group.
Negra Mosca is a meeting and exploration space around image and visual creation. A place that expands to offer cultural and educational activities with the purpose of creating community and weaving links with the citizens of Barcelona, using the image as a vehicle. It is made up of Marta Sellarés, Sara Sanz and Romina Aguilera, all three graduated in Fine Arts and specialized in photography. From different backgrounds, they combine educational work with the development of their personal artistic projects.
Marta Sellarés (Calatayud, 1996), through her projects, explores the territory as a guiding thread from which to find a unique look at what surrounds us, referring to memory, to emotion rooted in space and in search of that unusual that surrounds the human experience itself. Graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona (UB), she furthered her training in photography at the Grisart International School of Photography and through various workshops. Her projects “The stone house” and “Where they don’t see us” have been exhibited nationally and internationally in group and individual shows since 2018. In 2021, Ediciones Anómalas published “The stone house” in photobook format
Sara Sanz (Barcelona, 1994) travels through the universes of Author Documentary Photography, with projects that observe and evoke the adolescent reality, from different spaces or perimeters. She uses the symbol and poetics, combining the image with the found object and understanding it as the binder that unites the subject with the object and its context, thus creating a kaleidoscopic whole full of meanings and signifiers. Graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona (UB), she furthered her training in photography at the El Observatorio and is taking the Master’s Degree in Teacher Training at the University of Barcelona (UB). She works in teaching and cultural mediation and collaborates with some of the pedagogical projects of the A BAO A QU Association and the SETBA Foundation.
Romina Aguilera (Barcelona, 1985), carefully explores gestures and places, specifically, how the various forms of life resonate with the time and space they inhabit. Her photographic practice is immersed in the delimitation of a scene from which to experiment. In it, she works from an inventory of elements with which to build elliptical narratives that materialize in artist’s books, events or installations. Social Integrator and Graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona, she furthered her training in photography at the Grisart International School of Photography and is taking the Master’s Degree in Teacher Training at the University of Barcelona. It combines artistic experimentation with intervention in artistic, social and educational projects, using contemporary art and creative processes with different groups that are in a situation of social conflict. She has participated in various collective exhibitions. In 2018 she was selected by l’Espai Català-Roca in Art Photo BCN and in 2019 it was selected in the viewings of the same festival, where she was awarded the EFTI Scholarship. In 2021, she represented the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona at the Lumínic Festival.
