DOMÈNEC / VISUAL ARTIST / BARCELONA


How can politics encourage creativity and innovation?
First, by making it clear that public money for creativity should not be considered as an expense but rather as an investment. Second, through a clear commitment to support creative people and cooperatives without political intervention.

What do you like best about Barcelona?
The fact that the city is still growing, its margins and spaces – fragile but real spaces – are not yet devoured by the desire to arrange everything.The fact that you can live on the street all year round.
The fact that it is a Catalan city, a Murcian city, an Argentinian city, a Pakistani city.

What should the world know about your work?
My work starts with the desire to understand and question political processes through the practice of art-specific social contexts involved in each location by using architecture and town planning as a metaphor.
