16 May to 20 June Re_Visions. 10 years of video at BCN Producció at La Capella, Barcelona
info: http://lacapella.bcn.cat/en/exposicions/revisions-10-years-video-bcn-producci%C3%B3

This retrospective celebrates work produced under the first ten years of "Producció BCN"

The BCN Producció programe was launched in 2006 with the aim of incentivizing the production of contemporary art, as well as the participation of artists and professionals from the field, through an open call and a selection of projects carried out by independent jury members. This cycle of screenings seeks to review the works that were produced in video format during the program’s ten editions, which represent a high percentage of the total number of projects that Barcelona Producció has contributed to. The works display a wide array of characteristics and intentions; some were conceived as a single-channel project, with a clearly narrative intention and following “conventional” viewer codes; others were planned in the form of installations, to be part of a larger exhibition proposal; others still are the result of performative projects that, in being recorded, resulted in a video piece that on the one hand documents and on the other transcends the time boundaries of a live action. https://loop-barcelona.com/activity/re-visions/

21 March 2017 Publication :
Manifestaciones Públicas de Afecto is a digital publication that reclaims the importance of incorporating an affective dimension to the public sphere that psychoanalysis and feminism have historically made; investigating its possibilities to function as a space of resistance against the policies of neoliberal subjectivation. Avoiding idealizations and recognizing that affects can also have a normalizing function, the publication brings together texts and visual interventions by artists and researchers in whose practice the affective experience emerges as the basis of critical analysis: Valentina Desideri, Andrea Francke, Valeria Graziano, Gelen Jeleton, Mathew de Kersaint Giraudeau, Esther Planas and Florencia Portocarrero.
