BAR Project

The BAR Project, a curatorial collective based in Barcelona, is dedicated to the promotion of new relationships between artistic exchange and public development. Using its various projects and collaborators, BAR uses art to address current political and social issues.

Borrowing its name from the ubiquitous cafes and brasseries scattered around Barcelona, BAR is a cultural reinterpretation of gathering together and sharing space. One of the collective's projects, Me and You and Everyone We Meet, is a video program that explores subjective production and how we think and process life to better live among others.

Arranged in four chapters, each one tackles a different element. For example, Chapter 2: From the analogical to the digital machine reflects changes in technology, and how in different moments of this process, we can reimagine our futures.

Chapter 1: Other forms of community takes viewers to different situations, including a flat in Bologna of the 70’s, a queer group, a protest camp, a strange space where several people are preparing something together, or a series of anarchists letters. Each of these spaces show different ways of understanding togetherness, questioning how we view community and otherness.
