This is an open call for participating in the second edition of Spring Sessions at Hangar art production and research center based in Barcelona (Spain). The Spring Sessions are intensive and interdisciplinary meetings between artists and other professionals for developing a specific part of a larger research project.
The Spring Sessions provide the opportunity to an artist to invite a professional from another discipline to work together in the development of part of a larger research project within the framework of a one month residency in Hangar. One participant will be based in Barcelona and the other somewhere else. The person based elsewhere will be able to live in Hangarâ€™s guest house during the development of the residency (one month).
This year’s edition seeks to support projects that address the issue of transferability in the ACT (Art, Science and Technology) field. We understand by transferability:
- The applicability of a result, knowledge or methodology in other contexts.
- Extension / transfer of the meaning of some concepts to other disciplines
- The process by which a sector assimilates an aspect, property, an attribute of another process and it is partially or completely transformed.
Some terms related to transferability are: socialisation, transmission, data, empathy, identification, protocol, community, hypertext or glossary, among others.
This call is addressed to those projects resulted from collaborations between artists and other profiles that carry out theoretical and / or practice research while contribute to the transfer of knowledge among heterogeneous areas.
