Biennal de Pensament Ciutat Oberta

A Vocabulary for the Future

Continuous screening



“A Vocabulary for the Future” is an audiovisual creation project produced for the Open City Thinking Biennale. It is composed by 14 original short films, created from the dialogue between thirty filmmakers, visual artists, writers and thinkers, both local and international. The project attempts to generate an incipient vocabulary of another possible future, a first map for exploring exits from this damaged present.

During the Biennale, there is a continous screening of the “Vocabulary” at the CCCB Hall.
