We are inviting visual and new media artists to submit their artwork for the exhibition program of the 8th Student International Film Festival. For the last seven years, STIFF Festival has produced a rich accompanying program that elaborates and complements the thematic focus of its film program. With the emphasis on contemporary art practices, STIFF’s exhibition program gathers artists from all over the globe, dealing with relevant social, political, as well as intimate aspects of everyday life. This year the festival is giving attention to the Body, and the exhibition program aims to explore socially relevant ways of interpreting the body in a contemporary environment saturated with images. What is the relationship between a body and the moving image? Are we our bodies or is the body just merchandise we trade on the labor market and offer in intimate relationships? How to position ourselves in a world where objects move more freely than people? When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction? Do we allow our bodies to be playful? We encourage a view of the body as productive and creative, the body as a process that […]
Like in a perfect circle, I do return to the place where my first exhibition took place, Sineu. One of the many perceptible differences between those two biographical moments lies in the fact that I actually understand the role of the spectator as a participant in the work’s process. In a sort of symbiotic relationship, visitors will enjoy with the different works exhibited in Espai Sant Marc while they reinforce them with their experience. An appropiate way to understand my work is noticing the importance of code in it. I talk about code not only as technological scripting but as a meaning that is not going to be understood without taking in account the required elements. I believe spectators have a work to do putting together the different pieces that an artwork places in front of them. If not, they would only achieve an incomplete, although valid, experience, because that’s what we find day after day: multitude of codes that we use to replicate without understanding them, as the one singing the Quran phonetically. Even that, with the increase of technical complexity in my latests years’ projects, my opacity towards the spectators has lowered, as the enjoyment of them would return the efforts invested. Anyway, there are […]
EXHIBITION NO. 16 is a testament to the flexibility and resilience of our students to focus on their work and push through the challenges that face them. It is the celebration of a milestone that marks their journey into the future of photographic arts. SPAO is proud to present this new generation of contemporary photographers and photo-based artists who are more ready than ever to engage in what lies ahead.

We start with: Schadenschnelldienst (2010), light installation by Gabriele Horndasch (Düsseldorf / GER) / Schnelltest (2021), site-specific video installation by Camenisch / Vetsch (Basel / CH) and paintings by Peter Kohl (AT) in cooperation with SZALCprojects, Bonn/ View attachment: Press Release PASSAGE
Solidarity at this difficult time is an important issue! “Quarantine Exhibition” is a virtual exhibition during fragile times. The COVID-19 pandemic changes our lives significantly day after day. Despite the current crisis, art is demonstrating its force. In April, after lockdown measures were put in place around the world, our immediate impulse was to bring together artists, friends, peers and professionals from any geographic location, with no limits on age, nationality, or career stage, through the format of a truly open, open call. The artists were motivated to submit a statement and an artwork in any medium of their choice, transmitting their immediate impressions during quarantine. With a total of 445 submissions, the open call shifted into a plethora of voices and impulses, as well as a cartography of the global sentiment. With a variety of strong and compelling works, the selection process became simultaneously exciting and challenging. Space52 and the selection committee have selected 60 artists that will be included in the exhibition. Selected international artists are invited to engage in a series of online exhibitions, eventually staging a gallery exhibition. Paying tribute to the solidarity shown by artists and institutions, at a time when art is suffering fully […]
