PLECS. Lateral Programme of Contemporary Studies of La Escocesa

Registration: To register for the programme, please send your CV and cover letter to

The first edition of the Lateral Programme of Contemporary Studies of La Escocesa is conceived as a training complement aimed at students of arts and humanities. It is articulated through transversal lines of reading that interpret the different activations resulting from research and active artistic experimentation throughout 2019. Through these readings, accompanied by specialists, the sessions are interrelated and acquire a formative dimension, complemented by practical sessions, presentations and projections.

The Programme is structured along the following lines:

1- Art as research. Exploration of artistic practice as research projects on our relationship with the world, resulting in counterhegemonic discourses on new ways of thinking and relating.

2- Instruction, anomie and alienation of work. Exploration of the need to expand and revise the concept of "work" in an institutional system that pressures creators to adopt specific ways of doing and developing.

3- Art and material culture, the power of collectives. Space from which to act with material culture, and ask ourselves what powers, spaces, spheres and properties we acquire when we relate to objects.

4- The artist as a professional agent. Various complementary sessions, with the intention of offering tools focused on the professionalization of artistic practice, especially on methodological issues.

5- Readings to think about the contemporary world. Collective reading, accompanied by guest agents, of texts to think about the role of art and other cultural manifestations in contemporary society.
