“... art can change society, perhaps not permanently, but towards a new and subsequent utopia. Art is a space where not only value notions are discussed, but where provisional social models may be implemented to be seen, analyzed and, in the best of cases, copied by other disciplines and bodies in society, which will be the ones to negotiate their permanence and executive status.”
(Tania Bruguera)

FAIR_PLAY Film & Video Award at LOOP’10

LOOP’s International Program of Festivals sets up collaborations with key international festivals and invites them to be present in Barcelona.
