Syndemic Sublime in Possibles Catalog

ISEA2022 Barcelona brought together an extensive display of pieces located at the convergence between art, science and technology, with more than 80 works including immersive installations, interactive and online works, sound art, animations, mapping and a drone show. This exhibition has been a dialogue between works by international authors and around twenty Catalan artists, and pieces from the open call had been interspersed with other digital art collections.

LA IRRUPCIÓ, the exhibition, curated by Marta Gracia, Jara Rocha and Enric Puig Punyet, includes more than twenty artworks from the call. These pieces, inserted within the local context, opened a dialogue about the complex circumstances that we are living on the planet after the disruption of the pandemic. The exhibition showed proposals from leading international and local artists. Following the center’s new methodology that encourages horizontal participation, discursive itineraries emerged with participation at different levels and the involvement of Santa Mònica’s resident artist communities during the exhibition’s period.

ISEA2022 Barcelona has been organized by the UOC in partnership with the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB), Santa Mònica arts centre, the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), New Art Foundation, the new Art, Science and Technology Hub Hac Te, Barcelona City Council (through Barcelona Science and Universities and the Institute of Culture), the Government of Catalonia's Ministry of Culture and the Institut Ramon Llull.
