The period of residence will be from the 15th of March to the 15th of

The programme MEMBRANA #2 ? Residency For Artistic Interface Criticism
aims to provide support to a visual artist interested in developing an
artwork based on the concept of Interface Bias. The artist will develop
his/her project during a eight weeks residency at Hangar (Barcelona).
She/he will also be invited to participate in the ongoing investigation
of the Critical Interface Politics research group, part of the European

We are looking for an artist working with the concept of ?Bias? within
Interfaces, willing to contribute to the research that we are carrying
out through the materialization of an artwork.
