  • A journey into the art of sound collage through MACBA's resources on the subject. *A term coined by composer John Oswald in 1985 in his essay 'Plunderphonics, or Audio Piracy as a Compositional Prerogative', plunderphonic artists transform existing audio recordings into new compositions.

  • The late seventies saw the experimental tradition of collage continue in the form of industrial music and the cassette underground. But it took the sudden emergence of hip-hop culture for collage to make inroads towards the form of popular music, as DJs in the Bronx developed the mixer and the ...

  • In "The Road to Plunderphonia" Chris Cutler looks at the critical role of memory – on which both the origination and reproduction of music turns – and attempts to unpick to what extent the specific nature of a memory system shapes the music that it mediates, with reference, especially, to the third ...

  • The artist Armando Andrade Tudela has created three works as part of the new policy of promoting the production of projects from – not in – the Capella MACBA . They are two films, originally shot on 16mm, and a section of wall comprising of a large panel of perforated hardboard and five pieces of ...

  • La ronda is the title given by Morocco-born French artist Latifa Echakhch to the project she conceived for La Capella MACBA, an exhibition consisting of three installations: Eivissa (2010), Gaya (E102) 5, Vitrail (2010) and Fantasia (2010). Like most of Echakhch's oeuvre, these works have their ...

  • Pep Duran (Vilanova i la Geltrú, 1955) has always worked with scenography, a practice that has allowed him to develop proposals and projects focused on a particular way of understanding construction, representation and space. Duran's A Chain of Events, an installation specifically created for the ...

  • Two commonplace objects, in themselves of little eloquence, are used to multiply the ways of interpreting questions such as the development of material culture, the ownership of water or the status of sound in a conception of contemporary art, in which sight and touch are always at the forefront. T ...

  • The Desacuerdos project was an institutional collaboration which proposed tracing cultural practices, models and counter-models that do not respond to dominant structures, politics and practices which have been self-imposed since the beginning of the Transition. The project narrates a critical ...

  • The second volume of Desacuerdos turns its attention to concepts like counterhegemony and biopolitics. It is divided into five sections: Banality and biopolitics: the Spanish Transition and the New World Order, the Spanish Government's Cultural Policy Abroad (2000-2004), Aleph, the Web as a Space ...

  • Desacuerdos 3 offers readers a selection of the documents that were analysed, exhibited and discussed during the course of the Desacuerdos project. In keeping with the general spirit underlying Desacuerdos, there has been no attempt to create a canon of antagonist aesthetic practices in Spain. ...

  • The fourth published installment from the Desacuerdos project documents and analyzes the aesthetic and political debate that surged from both militant cinema and video creations from the end of the Franco era until today. In the spirit of the Desacuerdos project, we hope to call attention to the ...

  • The fifth volume in the Desacuerdos project documents and analyses the aesthetic and political debate that emerged in the fields of militant cinema and independent and artistic video at the end of the Franco era and continues to this day. In the spirit of the Desacuerdos project, it highlights the ...

  • Following the same pedagogic spirit as earlier issues, volume six of the Desacuerdos series looks at the art and education binomial. It starts off with interviews with René Schérer and Jacques Rancière – two key authors in relation to changing approaches to education – and then goes on to explore ...
