Artistic accompaniment programme

"Grapa" is an artistic accompaniment programme promoted by the CCCB and Hangar to open, accompany and explain artistic creation processes that are situated at the intersection of art, science, technology and society. It proposes that artists be open to a shared accompaniment between the two institutions that facilitates research, production, and mediation during one of their project’s development phases. At the same time, "Grapa" offers a mechanism for the observation and reporting of artistic processes that aims to generate knowledge about the creation of projects that are wholly located in interstitial spaces, halfway between disciplines and institutions. After its first edition with Joana Moll and Silvia Zayas, in 2024 "Grapa" will accompany the work of two artists to be confirmed.

"Grapa" was created as a pilot programme for the “RED-ACTS” project, a network promoted by the UOC and Barcelona's new Art, Science and Technology hub, Hac Te, with the support of the Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso.

Each artistic project has brought this process of accompaniment together in a notebook that reflects both the methodology used and the weaving of meshes.


GRAPA 1. AdTech Constellations

Joana Moll

AdTech Constellations is an artistic project by Joana Moll that investigates the workings of the main internet business, AdTech advertising technology, from its visible to its intangible layers. The project aims to promote ethical and sustainable practices in the industry. Its notebook brings together and relates the start of Joana Moll’s artistic process in the form of interviews with the artist by Clara Piazuelo, the calendar of actions carried out, Antonio Gagliano’s diagram of the network of supports woven within the framework of the project and a text by cultural theorist Matthew Fuller that analyses the potential of Joana Moll’s project to portray the crises of our present-day world using a poetic language.

GRAPA 2. ruido ê

Silvia Zayas 

ruido ê is an artistic production and research project by Silvia Zayas that centres on the problem of the effect and impact of noise on the bodies of marine animals. The project is designed as a process of experimentation that builds a network of relationships with scientists, divers and other artists to investigate questions of perception, legibility, vulnerability and resistance. Interviews with Silvia Zayas conducted by the artist Clara Piazuelo, the collected activities carried out, the diagram by Antonio Gagliano of the mesh woven as part of the project and the text by scientist Claudio Barría all go to construct the narrative of an advanced phase of the project.
