The Independent Studies Program at MACBA is a learning mechanism whose fundamental goal is to mobilize critical thinking and activate the political imagination, at the crossroads between artistic practices, the social sciences and political-institutional interventions. One of the key features of the program involves developing critical capacity, so as to facilitate free movement between thought paradigms. In this regard, the PEI (for Programa d’Estudis Independents), quite beyond its role as a space for the affirmation of representations and identities, seeks to query enclosed categories by activating an antagonistic imagination, able to elaborate fronts of aesthetic and political struggle from out of new possible forms.
