Within the framework of the European SPECTRAL project, CRATER-Lab in collaboration with HANGAR presents SCREEN: an artistic residency where artists can develop new works in Expanded Cinema in Barcelona, experimenting with analog devices, photochemical film, light and sound.
SPECTRAL is a Creative Europe project developed by European laboratories that promote expanded cinematic art. Crater-Lab’s program in this project explores the screen as an active protagonist: receiving screen, expanded and contracted, in motion, light or dark, canvas screen, mirror screen, without screen, without projection…
SCREEN ›› Crater-Lab offers three grants of four weeks of residence each, to carry out a project or part of a project of expanded cinema, paracinema, installation or film sculpture, that explores the concept of SCREEN.
These residencies are intended for artists whose work is focused on cinematic art practices such as live performance, installation, sculptures mainly worked with film / photochemical and/or in dialogue with other formats or disciplines particularly interested on the Screen and the Object of screening as a main subject.
