In the European project “Sharing Research, Producing Knowledge”, an artist is invited to co-curate a session of the Irregular Section in connection with a theme that he or she is exploring. Once the research has been shared with the audience, the artist returns the following season to present the piece developed using the feedback provided by the public.
This first session of “Sharing Research, Producing Knowledge” has been co-organised by Marc Vives and the team responsible for the Irregular Section. As part of his research into venues for gatherings and festivity, in this session Marc Vives focuses on two specific historical periods.
In the years 1840-50 phrenology and animal magnetism became popular. The basis of phrenology was the belief that a person’s character depends on the physiology of the brain, while the proponents of animal magnetism claimed the existence of an omnipresent, universal fluid with healing properties. On another note, in the late 1960s a music genre emerged in the late 1960s which was dubbed progressive rock. It represented a break with the simplicity of pop by opting for musical experimentation with themes up to nine hours in length and drawing on very eclectic influences. Although these phenomena are not related historically, both have in common the formation of communities and a very particular concern for the arrangement of bodies in space.
The 2nd session of Section Irregular of El Mercat de les Flors will be held at Finca San Salvador, Josep Maria Jujol designed it commissioned by Dr. Salvador Sansalvador in 1910 to commercialize the water with supposed healing properties that emerge of the ground.
Every day there will be a guided tour of the Finca Sansalvador by the Taller de Història de Gràcia, followed by a conference, by freeze Jeleton, Alex Gomez-Font and Annette Mülberger. More information about the conference HERE
