An artistic installation, the only place where you can hear Love of Lesbian’s unreleased creation, ‘EFÍMERA’. Entering the studio exclusively to record this song, the band has created a virtual reality experience in which each person can embark on an individual journey into the centre of the band’s mind. Love of Lesbian once again goes one step ahead of mass production and offers us a personalized experience.

Without doubt an innovative idea in which the Catalan combo Love of Lesbian aims to take us on a sensorial journey directly to the heart of their minds by composing an unreleased track and recording a 360º video clip
Production company Ooh!Virtual’s creative director, Carlos Zorilla explains, “We have used a 360º recording format using 14 simultaneous cameras to create a unique user experience “. In this case, the idea is based on the mechanisms inside the artist’s mind that search for inspiration in order to create imaginary worlds. The difference is that instead of “seeing” these worlds, thanks to Samsung Gear VR (created by Samsung and Óculus) and this new recording system, we will be able to “immerse ourselves” and navigate directly inside the story.

The whole experience can be enjoyed inside the capsule designed by Paco Lago (Mireandoveo), whose project had been directly chosen (out of other proposals) by the band. “The eye is a traveller that sees everything that passes by, it sees time go by in ephemeral frames”. This is how the creator of the exhibition defines Efímera.

TECHNOLOGIES AND SURVEILLANCE is a project led by Antoni Muntadas coordinated by Teresa Martín Ezama and produced in collaboration between Enter Forum and Idensitat. It combines training, debate, and the development of creative micro-projects, based upon a critical perspective and proposals which offer an alternative to mechanisms of control which make use of surveillance technologies in public space.

The workshop "Technologies and surveillance” started at the event Enter Forum 2014. It has been developed in several phases over 2014 and 2015 comprising several meetings of critical review and tutorial content. The nine projects projects generated within the workshop will be presented at an open session on 29 September.

sala d'actes

Tradicionalment els mitjans de comunicació han estat cabdals per a la difusió i coneixement de qualsevol expressió artística. Les relacions entre els professionals de la comunicació i de l'àmbit cultural han estat molt estretes. Actualment les coses estan canviant i les redaccions – tant de diaris com de mitjans audiovisuals - s'han vist immerses en grans canvis i han nascut nous mitjans.
Vols saber què està passant als mitjans de comunicació? Com ha canviat la gestió de la comunicació cultural? Com pots fer del teu projecte una notícia? Com has d’actuar en cas d’una mala notícia o crisi comunicativa? Quines estratègies creatives tens a l’abast per destacar entre tantes accions i iniciatives culturals com hi ha avui dia?
Les activitats del SDE van adreçades exclusivament als professionals de la creació i les empreses culturals / amb inscripció / aforament 100 places.

El personatge infinit, de Jaume AnglŔs
08.10.2015 - 10.01.2016

Without any academic training, and totally isolated from the established world of painting and illustration, but for those in the know, a certain touch that reminds you of anything from the Max and Crumb comics to the imagery of Ponç, Miró, Haring or the first Tàpies. The life of Jaume Anglès, through the free, firm strokes of his drawing, reveals that reality is incomprehensible when tackled head on. Only from the globalized, revolved, multiplied, fragmented and crushed image of the vestiges of the most immediate and spontaneous local immersion (pre-olympic Barcelona, the Kike Bar of the eighties, the falling of the twin towers, his study full of traces of life and dictionaries), the sight over and beyond the accommodating Establishment emerges and is filled with red hot life.

FRANCESC SER╔S: Conference 'The Life and Times of J.M. Coetzee'
13.10.2015 / 19:30 h

John Maxwell Coetzee was born in South Africa in 1940. He has published novels, literary memoirs and several parts of his autobiography, portraying a life that represents the concerns of 20th and 21st century people. His work has been marked by the ethnic conflict caused by the segregationist policy of apartheid. Far from being anecdotal, this enables a category to form, which becomes a symbol of the relationships of power and other forms of inequality and domination around the world.

6th Philosophical Seminars
WHY DO WE WORK? Striving for new working ideals
14, 15 and 16.10.2015
CCCB, Arts Santa M˛nica and Institut francŔs

In the 6th of these Philosophical Seminars, we intend to address an issue that is undeniably, a fundamental one; a transversal issue because it affects us all at different levels: the question of work. Here we want to ask ourselves, why do we work?
Looking closely, this question is not a rhetorical one that has a logical answer. Who would dare reply, “I work because I have to” or “I only work for money”, and be satisfied with that? In short, the aim of these seminars is to examine the nature of work and clearly present the concepts that still make up, to a great degree, our idea of work. These concepts actually no longer correspond to the reality of contemporary capitalism: employed/unemployed, producer/consumer, employee/freelance, etc. So which new categories correspond to an ideal phenomenology of work today? Which new subjects surrounding work should be identified in order to implement an efficient and transforming anti-capitalist policy?

El quinto evangelio
de Alberto Gracia amb la presentació a càrrec de Mauro Herce, guanyador del Premi Especial del Jurat en el Festival de Locarno per la seva película “Dead slow ahead”.

El quinto evangelio de Gaspar Hauser
Nou episodi de les peripècies del 'enfant sauvage' Gaspar Hauser, acompanyat del seu inseparable i “bienquerido” cavallet de fusta. Subjecte impossible, Gaspar té en aquesta ocasió la personalitat fragmentada en cinc personatges arquetípics: un nan sadomasoquista, una seductora donzella, un tipus cínic i dèspota, un mariner romàntic i un batman patètic, encarnat aquest últim pel mateix director de la pel·lícula. Un antiheroi de bata i sabatilles, fumador compulsiu, reflex de la inadaptació en què està ficat l'home decebut, l'home que pensa, l'home que és d'aquest món sense ser.

Sobre el realitzador.
ALBERTO GRACIA (Ferrol, 1978) va estudiar a la Facultat de Belles Arts de Pontevedra, on va cursar l'especialitat d'escultura. Va realitzar exposicions en diferents països del món. La seva obra participa d'eines com la pintura, el dibuix, la performance, el vídeo i la instal·lació.
Interessat en l'estètica, va publicar al desembre de 2010 el seu primer llibre d'assaig titulat "Microfugues, Teoria i joc de la profanació" a l'editorial Arestes Martínez. A més, ha participat des de llavors en projectes d'investigació com Grid Spinoza (2011), i en conferències i taules rodones en relació al tema.
La seva primera incursió en el cinema és Microfugues (2008), curtmetratge rodat en 16mm. El quinto evangelio de Gaspar Hauser és el seu primer llargmetratge.
Festivals i Premis
Rotterdam International Film Festival (2013), Premio FIPRESCI, Festival Cinemateca Uruguaya (Uruguay), Cinema Latino Festival - Tübingen (Alemania), Festival Lima Independiente (Perú), Ars Independent Film Festival (Polonia), Valdivia (Chile), Athens Avant-Garde Film Festival (Grecia), Viennale (Austria), Festival de Cine Europeo de Sevilla, Cineuropa Santiago de Compostela

El solar de l'estraperlo
19 - 25.10.2015
Residence area

Jomi Oligor, Xavi Bobés and Shaday Larios, El solar de l’estraperlo - El barrio chino de Barcelona a través de sus objetos.

A projectcreated to make plays out of realia that come from fieldwork relating topeople, their belongings and the History of the Neighbourhood that they livein. Objects that tell their own story. ElSolar del Estraperlo was created to explore the relationship between theseobjects, personal and collective memory, the neighbourhood and the city.

In El solar del Estraperlo, two words arecombined to represent and synthesize the main part of this project. On onehand, working in places which have been made invisible, are unnoticed, oralready destroyed, and on the other, working on all the possible narrationsthat can be made from an object that is traded, acquired, worn out, recycled ormoved in time and space until it ends up in a given area, a unique memory, anda specific route within a Neighbourhood.

This firstintervention is based on Barcelona’s China Town and its NeigbourhoodAssociation: “Barcelona’s China Town portrayed through its objects.”


The exhibition “Figures del desdoblement” (Bendy Figures), part of the “if Festival”, is the ideal environment to help new creators linked to theatre and working with objects develop their projects.

LLU═S-ANTON BAULENAS: "El Capote mÚs mÓgic: L'arpa d'herba"
27.10.2015 / 19:30 h

“L’arpa d’herba” [The Grass Harp”]
made an impression on me right from the very beginning while I was reading it. Later, when I started writing, this is the book that I always had at the forefront of my mind. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, the fact that it shows how realist literature can unexpectedly change direction to become magic realism, without breaking the unity of its narrative, but actually complementing it and then simply convert back to narrative “normality” just like that. Secondly, it shows how a relatively short novel centred around a clearly local setting in the south of the United States, can become universal through the humanity of its characters and of the story.

The MIRA festival is an exhibition of new creations of visual art on an international scale, which generates unique symbiosis, transmission of knowledge and opportunities through the collaboration between visual artists and musicians.  
It is a cultural event based on three key interconnected areas: exhibition, exposure, and education.
The Festival promotes events in the city of Barcelona by combining unique areas and architectural interest as places in which to create cultural initiatives such as concerts, events, conferences and workshops, and where technological innovation is the key element behind the different artistic practices.
MIRA encourages collaboration, enables the creation of new projects and provides support between groups, associations and artists connected to the field of visual arts.
The main aim of the activities that make up the MIRA festival at Arts Santa Mònica, is the exposure of the relations between visual arts, music, and technology in different areas. Being able to discover, inspire and demonstrate, through concerts, events, and conferences, new tendencies and creations in this discipline, which has become a new artistic trend.
Arts Santa Mònica together with MIRA will become a space in which the audience can discover a genuine sensorial experience.

Preu: 8,00€ (consultar descomptes) compra de tickets a

En Patufet és un nen molt petit. Però que molt molt petit. Tant petit que dorm en una llauna de sardines. Tant petit que es pot amagar a sota d’una col. Tant petit que els seus pares tenen por de que si va pel carrer no el vegin i... xaf!, el deixin fet un nyap.
Però en Patufet no és només molt petit... també és molt espavilat, molt valent i molt tossut.
Per això convencerà a la seva mare que el deixi anar a comprar safrà a la botiga d’en Josepet i a portar el menjar al seu pare que està treballant en el camp. Aixó sí, sempre cantant la seva cançó.
Aquest matí, al aixecar-se,en Patufet ho ha vist claríssim: avui serà un dia ple d’aventures.

Pupella-Noguès, Le miroir aux fourmis (El mirall de les formigues).
Espai "La plaça" exposició
A partir de 3 anys

Preu: 8,00€ (consultar descomptes) compra de tickets a

Un espectacle que parla, amb humor i frescor, del món que ens rodeja, marcat pel ritme del temps que va passant, de les quatre estacions, del passatge del dia a la nit, amb malicia i impertinència. L’escriptura escènica resta oberta i en suspensió posant en evidencia els efectes fulminants de la paraula i de les seves ressonàncies. Un titellaire rondinaire, un músic somniador i un manipulador de fils són els guies maliciosos de l’espectacle.

Mercè Framis, Xarop de cargol. Poemes i cançons contra els mals dels més petits
Claustre Arts Santa Mònica
A partir de 3 anys

Preu: 8,00€ (consultar descomptes) compra de tickets a
La Clara és el personatge principal d’aquesta història. És una heroïna molt petita que, com a nena que és, s’ho passa molt bé quan juga amb la seva mascota (una cabreta) i amb la seva joguina (una pilota). La Clara —tot i ser molt menuda i tenir una aparença fràgil, fins i tot de joguina—, com els adults, dedica bona part del seu temps a la seva feina. La Clara és metgessa, cada matí surt de casa i condueix la seva ambulància fins a l’hospital, on atén els seus pacients.
És una doctora molt especial i amb un cor molt gran. Amb grans dosis d’amor i amb poemes i cançons fàcils de recordar —un recurs molt utilitzat per Mercè Framis en els seus espectacles infantils—, la Clara elabora, cada dia, els remeis màgics amb què guareix moltes de les afliccions que sovint comparteixen els més petits: la tristesa, la manca d’habilitat per vestir-se, la inapetència, el mal de panxa...
L’espectacle vol transmetre la idea que l’amistat i l’amor tenen propietats curatives i que tots, com la Clara, podem ser metges dels nostres familiars, amics i companys.

En Tim no pot trobar la seva sabata esquerra enlloc. La busca a tot arreu, fins que el Sr. Grey li diu que probablement la pot trobar en un arbre de les sabates. Tim segueix les instruccions de l’home i surt a la recerca de la sabata. Quan finalment troba l'arbre de les sabates, s'adona que és un arbre molt especial. L'arbre de les sabates pot concedir-li uns desitjos! En Tim demana que li torni la seva sabata, un coet i al seu amic en Tom. L’arbre li concedeix els 3 desitjos, i quan en Tim troba el seu amic en Tom, descobreix que ell també acaba de perdre la sabata perquè la marea li ha pres. En Tim és molt feliç de poder portar en Tom a l'arbre de les sabates on està convençut que en Tom trobarà les seves sabates.
