Over a month ago, we directed the workshop “Exhibition matters” at the Meetings Of Science, Art and Thought organized by Art Santa Monica, in Barcelona. It was a very interesting three hours hands-on working session that helped generate new ideas, connections and documentary material.

We hope you enjoy it and find it interesting. We had a great time and it was very useful for us! Many thanks to everyone who made it possible!
This year was the eighth edition of the meetings of science, art and thought organized by Art Santa Monica in Barcelona. This time the concept of matter was the focus to be addressed from different cultural perspectives and knowledge backgrounds. Ramon Sangüesa and Irene Lapuente from Co-Creating Cultures facilitated a workshop on transformable and ductile materials for exhibitions, on Saturday 2nd of October at 11am.
Again, the participants’ creativity, dialogue and good vibes were the most important highlights of the day. During three hours, twenty people were organized into three groups using clustering techniques and they were fast to organize themselves and build up three proposals: “the Spiral of knowledge”, “the scientific city” and “art without a message”. When the first hour of work was over, and a first sketch of what would each proposal be made, each member impersonated a character to behave as users critically “visiting” the other projects. Characters were not short of personality and originality at all! At this stage of the workshop, participants gave life to an art dealer, speechless people who communicating only by writing, or a specially rebel teenager, among other colourful additions. Finally, a lively debate and discussion finished a pleasant early-morning session. We would like to thank all the participants for their comments, dicussion and creativity. Thanks to all of them!
In the afternoon, the schedule of the meetings followed with cooking workshops, conference and many more activities!
