Sharing processes: exhibition about collaborative projects
Medialab Prado, LAB0.
Opening, Thursday 01.02, 17:30–19:00
Sharing processes showcases 15 projects linked to the international network CAPP and Medialab Prado. The exhibition has to main objectives in mind: first, to share the processes and results of these projects that were carried out in Spain and in Europe and, secondly, to generate a place for learning and exchange between the local, national and international community.
Sharing processes avoids aestheticizing collaborative practice. It consists of ten documentation spaces in which visitors can immerse themselves in 15 projects: through videos and through texts that reflect on the residencies, but as well as other materials such as objects and photographs that have been generated through the course of the projects.

The exhibition will have several instances of activation: a reading group will meet once a week and there will be two workshops that dvelve on the question to which extent it might. be possible to generate a working methodology related to collaborative projects.
