LOOP Barcelona | the place for artists' video and film


Since its creation in 2003, LOOP in Barcelona has consolidated itself as the international meeting point specialised in moving image art. LOOP is an art fair: LOOP Fair, a city festival: SCREEN Festival, and a platform for professional debate: LOOP Studies.  LOOP is an innovative space for interaction between galleries, artists, distributors, collectors, curators, museum directors and the public.

LOOP Studies 2013 (22-25 May) is On Collaboration with 3 days of innovative round tables and professional case studies organised by LOOP and Universitat de Barcelona. REGISTER BY 20 MAY for a place on this interesting course! Facing the systematic dismantling and redefinition of public policies, the severe reduction of public funds and the changing work paradigm in the field of cultural production; the current context requires new attitudes and a new way of understanding the work of agents in the field of cultural production. Firmly rooted in the question What about collaboration? This year’s LOOP STUDIES, with the University of Barcelona, will present 3 days of round tables and professional case studies, aiming to shine a light on new horizons of creation, production and administration built around the concept of collaboration. LOOP STUDIES will explore, discuss, imagine and conceptualize common strategies (from self-managed practices to institutions) and create a space to think about methodologies that can be ethically relevant in the arts, socially sustainable and politically appropriate in the current context. Presenters from: Spain, France, China, Finland, Germany ++ ---------------------------------- LOOP Fair takes place 23-25 May and presents and ambitous showcase of artists films selected by the LOOP committee and presented by their galleries.
