We shall set to sea in search of whales with Fermín Jiménez Landa and Enrique Franco (AMBAR). Saturday 20 July. from 15.15 to 20.00. Point of encounter in consonni (C/ Conde Mirasol 13, Bilbao).

As in the novel Moby Dick, it’s not about whales, but about the search for them. We might be lucky and we might not. Our companions are not spectators, they are fellow travellers and this is not a show. During the trip they tell us what whale fishing was like. As in Moby Dick, failure is in attendance, as a possibility.

Full Programme

Session.1

Thursday 15 May at 19:30 in consonni (C/ Conde Mirasol 13, Bilbao).

With the participation of Jon Maia and Mariachi Azteca de Flor Fernández[.

Jon Maia, director of the documentary Apaizac Obeto Dokumentala will tell us of the adventure on board the replica of the oldest whaling boat or 'txalupa', Beothuk.

The disappearance of the Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader in the ocean will be narrated as a ranchera song. In a chilled out atmosphere, gathered at the table, we will eat, drink and, between voyages, Napermex and other Basque-Mex ballads will be the space imbetween, catchy and lingering.

Practical workshop with Susi Bilbao aimed at artists, professionals in graphic design, edition, layout and publication, as well as students of design, fine arts and other disciplines. Activity devised to satisfy the need for understanding and collaboration between artists and designers.

Based on this premise and experience in the field, the workshop sets out to focus, in a practical way, on all the common foreseeable steps in art publication in order to turn them into design tools: concept and form.

Based on this premise and experience in the field, the workshop sets out to focus, in a practical way, on all the common foreseeable steps in art publication in order to turn them into design tools: concept and form.

Part of the experience will be practical, involving the development of a concept for a fictitious art publication, without the use of digital tools.

The dates of the sessions are: Tuesday 22 July, from 10.00 to 14.00 and from 16.00 to 20.00 and Wednesday 23, from 16.00 to 20.00.

Fermín Jiménz Landa presents Ultramarino for consonni’s HPC programme. Ultramarino follows on from Festa konspirazioa, Black Tulip’s party proposal for HPC, which ended up with the collective preparation of a cocktail.

 

We swap the tiny amount of fluid contained in a cocktail for the 354,700 000 km³ of water encompassed by the Atlantic Ocean. From liquid in a glass surrounded by terra firma we become a small solid surrounded by liquid. Stories about transoceanic passages, involving people from America and Europe. Treating infinitude and the absolute against the insignificance of the individual. The epic, the quest for the impossible, utopia, adventure and the history of immigration. Voyages in the same direction but in a different sense. Moby Dick as the backdrop.

Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 January, from17.00 to 20.00

Thursday 30 January, from 17.00 to 19.00 At 19.30, public moment.

At consonni.

 

Is there a place for criticism in the cultural productions of our times? What happens when an immanent critique occurs in literature that is termed “fiction”? Are we beholding a writing-work change of paradigm or, on the contrary, witnessing a practice that is on the way out? Through these questions we will attempt to discover the critical event within certain literary productions categorised as “fiction”. The exploration begins with works by the authors Bolaño, Sergio Chejfec and Mario Bellatin.

 

Free workshop with prior registration until Monday 27 if you write to nerea@consonni.org, until capacity is reached. More info here.

World premiere of Performer of Cabello/Carceller at BAD festival

 

There will be two sessions, one on Sunday 27 and the other one Sunday 3rd of November. At 7pm in the Bilbao Museum of Fine Arts.

  

Performance of undetermined duration that can occasionally accompany the video projection Performer departs from absurdity to ironically discuss some of the problems around the multiple attempts to ‘museify’ performance works. It tries to analyze the difficulties of submitting intentionally dematerialized and ephemeral projects to the logics of art market and conservation rules, especially when these are applied to works that were originally thought to transgress those specific logics.Stored as one more work o art, and registered with the rest of ‘objects’ in the Museum Collection storage areas -Sculpture Section-, a performer spends her time reflecting and reading out loud about some paradoxes that surround contemporary artistic practice.

Sesión 2.

Handover

Outlined Clearly/Clean Out.

 Performance in collaboration with the artist, Lisa Torell.

Handover Outlined Clearly/Clean Out is a performance that builds a site-specific installation in collaboration with the artist, Lisa Torell. This collaboration is a continuation of a work that began at Biro Beograd Residency Block 70 in Belgrade 2012, where methods and notions rooted in the politics of specific sites and situations were examined.

In Handover Outlined Clearly/Clean Out the audience will take part in a conversation-act that is bound to devastate something and build something else. The translation is a part of the performance and emphasizes spatial transformations through language.

I Believe I’m/it’s fake, I Believe I’m/it’s for Real -in Memory we Trust revels in history and memory and thereby weaves references together into a new situation. Outlined Clearly/Clean Out aims to reverse the process; through the reorganisation of the present, new concepts, memories and stories are constructed. Handover Outlined Clearly/Clean Out investigates contiguous methods for making knowledge that perhaps didn't previously exist. The piece will be built and rehearsed between 28 June and 3 July and performed 4 July

The performance is part of Johanna Gustafsson Fürst‘s residency at consonni with support from IASPIS, The Swedish Art Grant Committee’s International Program for Visual Artists.

Session 1. I Believe I’m/it’s fake, I Believe I’m/it’s for Real -in Memory we Trust. is a performance sculpture

I Believe I’m/it’s fake, I Believe I’m/it’s for Real -in Memory we Trust. continues Pablo Martes’ The problem lies in the medium, which ends in a dramatization of a fragment of The Aesthetics of Resistance I  by Peter Weiss. Johanna startsAesthetics of Resistance II where the narrator describes the artist Gericault’s struggle with the painting, The Raft of the Medusa, woven into a description of the catastrophe that caused the horrible incident. It runs parallel with a description of a Europe in crisis and his own painful choice between politics and artistic practice.

I Believe I’m/it’s fake, I Believe I’m/it’s for Real -in Memory we Trust. is a performance sculpture composed of a transparent black tent, a black megaphone and a speech. The speech is a schizophrenic monologue that extends Peter Weiss' novel and thereby inscribes itself within a historical chain of events and of recurring political betrayal. The speech makes use of actions, both artistic and political. The speech and the megaphone express a kind of materiality of democracy. Politics and art have the potential to create connections between the constructed, coherent world and the material world, where the material reality at times reaches a position capable of moving and changing our modes of thinking. In the tradition of Gericault and Peter Weiss, I Believe I’m/it’s fake, I Believe I’m/it’s for Real -in Memory we Trust explores such a position. 

The performance is part of Johanna Gustafsson Fürst‘s residency at consonni with support from IASPIS, The Swedish Art Grant Committee’s International Program for Visual Artists.

The book is the result of a research on hysteria. The publication is comprised of two parts, the first of which collects a set of terms associated with hysteria, by way of a glossary, that emerged from conversations between the artist, and psychologist Imanol Amayra, Director of the Department of Personality, Evaluation and Psychological Treatments and Research

Team Director of Neuromuscular Diseases and Neurodevelopment in the Faculty of Psychology and Education at the University of Deusto.  The second part shows the photographic result of the archive.

Saturday 11th May. 19:30h at consonni (Conde Mirasol 13).

With “The problem lies in the medium”, Pablo Marte’s project for HPC, sets out to rethink categories such as imitation, copy, remake, reproduction, repetition, plagiarism, fake or falsification, interpretation or inspiration, simulacrum, parody, pastiche, burlesque, satire… Words that point to a particular link between one cultural product and another that preceded it; a lengthy citation alluding to subjects within a historic relation, or a rethinking of the relationship itself, which amounts to the same thing. It is very fitting to kick off with this theme, given that consonni’s programming for this venue is inspired precisely by a previous cultural product (i.e. Woolf’s novel).

full program:

- Session 0.  Visit from a film archive selected by Pablo Marte: 2026 de Maha Maamoun; “Copycat”  de Tjasa Kancler & Anja Steidinger; “Ya viene, aguanta, riégueme, mátame” de Los Hijos y “El enemigo” de Vicente Vázquez y Usue Arrieta

From March 21st to April 30th, at consonni (Conde Mirasol 13).

- Session 1. Around “Pretty Woman and other stories, a film with Alexander Kluge”, by Pablo Marte.

The multidisciplinary artist María Ruido, filmmaker and researcher, has her debut in ZINEBI, with her last work ElectroClass, produced by consonni (Bilbao) with the colaboration of ETB.

ElectroClass Notes over the imaginary postindustrial generation from the TV (Bilbao as a case study). Taking the ETB archive as base material and Bilbao as a concrete case study, this project is a reflection about the dissolution of the concept of the traditional working class, the changes in our working conditions from industrial capitalism to outsourcing and the radical transformation of the city as a “polis” into “marca Bilbao”. The premiere is located in the seminar ARTISTS KILLED MEDIA STARS programed by María Ruido and consonni on 17th at 8pm.

Electroclass materialized the videographic production of seven minute chapters. They are based on the notion of dismantling the ETB televised files in opposition with the other audiovisual materials. To contextualize this work we have developed a parallel investigation through the 20 interviews, as well as movie and video programing of the film and video and a seminar: ARTISTS KILLED MEDIA STARS.

A living dead man, a zombi, is the least glamorous of the prominent figures that has the cinema. Without conscience, neither ambition nor personality, the non-dead man is an anti tragic hero, a parody of the ideal citizen.
Terror, science fiction or simply fiction are often used to dissect reality with greater crudeness than a documentary which aims at representing the truth.

A living dead man, a zombi, is the least glamorous of the prominent figures that has the cinema. Without conscience, neither ambition nor personality, the non-dead man is an anti tragic hero, a parody of the ideal citizen.
Terror, science fiction or simply fiction are often used to dissect reality with greater crudeness than a documentary which aims at representing the truth.
To analyze the life of the zombi across the contemporary cinema there are debated some scenes of " Shaun of the dead " (Zombis party), " The Comunna of Paris " of Peter Watkins and of course  " Down of dead " of George A. Romero, the movie that there is the inspiration of the project Stay indoors and shut your windows. Romero makes like that a perfect metaphor of the society of consumption showing to the people = zombis gravitating about the malls.

The zombi has turned into a metaphor of the fight of masses, of the critique of the society of consumption, of the lack of social conscience, etc. It is the demonstration of a collective force capable of obtaining any aim, a force that advances joined in a bit coarse way but very, very enterteining.

The basic idea of the workshop, which was organised by artist Asier Pérez González, was to invent new means of producing art projects and new ways of giving access to the public.

In PowerPoint Revolution!!! we analysed different cultural productions from the Information Age, globalisation, standardisation, etc. The workshop raised ideas such as spectacle and visibility, audience and economy in order to consider and question concepts such as the dematerialisation of the art object, the place of art, its identification and its presentation; i.e. its visibility and accessibility.

 CoMBO is a newly opened space in the center of Cordoba by Javier Orcaray and Gaby Mangeri. It is a space linked to La Fragua, a residency for artist in a monastery in the countryside opened four years ago. The idea is to invite artists who do not know each other and spend days in residence creating. The result of that will be shown in the new space in the capital.

It is an honour for us that one of the first invitations for a talk has been to consonni. Therefore Nerea Ayerbe will be there talking about consonni, its projects and editorial line in the 22nd of April.

For the first time, Bilbao is the venue for the Forum d’Avignon, the debate forum on culture in Europe. An international meeting in which art, architecture, politics and entrepreneurship professionals will analyse the different aspects of ‘The city as a cultural ecosystem’.

consonni takes part in differents moments:


March 5. RAW (Research Action Workshop). (From 9.00 to 18.00)

RAW is a space for reflection, warm-up and idea testing before the Forum d’Avignon-Bilbao. The aim of RAW is to use a cross-cutting approach to look at local ideas and experiences together with artists and cultural agents, through debates and activities connected with art and culture in contemporary contexts. The results of the ideas lab currently being prepared by Ixiar Garcia for the Forum Avignon-Bilbao on the basis of her work SOFT will be presented at this session.

 

THREE WORKSHOPS. Moderators:  María Arana / Gorka Rodriguez (Zaramari), María Salazar (Klinika de Proyectos) / Nani Soriano (La Noria, Málaga) y Ricardo Antón (ColaBoraBora). 

Debate leaders: María Mur Dean (consonni) and María Ptqk. 

Full programme RAW

 

March 6. Discussion 1: Dialogue between what is public and private in the field of creation. 10.00-11.45 

The forum will also include four debates on 6 and 7 March. consonni takes part in the first panel discussion. From their wesite: "Global analysis is necessary in a setting where the policies implemented by the public authorities and the actions of the private sector design the so-called cultural eco-systems of the city. In this context, we will consider some experiences of how to address this complexity that have been so successful for their respective cities. Ultimately, those experiences re-establish the link between the creative and artistic community and the general public, who are the ultimate recipients of a common asset: culture."

Moderator:
José Luis Rebordinos, Director of San Sebastian Film Festival

Address:
Jean Blaise, Director of "Le Voyage à Nantes: culture et tourisme"

Galerie Thomas Henry Ross art contemporain at Galerie B-312,

A conversation about production in contemporary art between Marthe Carrier,  director of B-312 (Montreal, Québec), Maria Mur Dean director of consonni (Bilbao, Spain) and Jean-Michel Ross director of Galerie Thomas Henry Ross art contemporain (Montréal, Québec).

A conversation about production in contemporary art between Marthe Carrier,  director of B-312 (Montreal, Québec), Maria Mur Dean director of consonni (Bilbao, Spain) and Jean-Michel Ross director of Galerie Thomas Henry Ross art contemporain (Montréal, Québec). 

Founded in New York in 2011, for its inaugural pop-up exhibition in Montreal, Galerie Thomas Henry Ross art contemporain presents the works of three artists and a collective that provoke reflection on the role that context plays in the production of contemporary art. If several art sociologists, since Marcel Duchamp, are now arguing that it is the institutional spaces (gallery, museum, foundation, etc...) which place the object in the position of the artwork, instead we will affirm that it is the artists who, with full awareness of the power dynamics, incorporate these sites within their conceptual concerns which relate directly to the aesthetic and formal concerns of their work.

The exhibition Galerie Thomas Henry Ross art contemporain will address these issues of context and reflect on what is specific to impermanent spaces, such as pop-up platforms, through artworks that question, incorporate, and manipulate public and mediated spaces. The exhibition offers works made at the intersection of art as an autonomous activity. Starting from the point of view that the exhibition context always feeds to certain degrees both the artworks and the curatorial discourse, we will find in this exploratory initiative diverse approaches that are particular to the mandate of the parasitized gallery. The use of Galerie B-312 a not-for-profit artist-run centre, while closed for the summer, will promote questioning with respect to the possibilities for a commercial gallery to act as a platform for experimentation and research. Through juxtaposition and dialogue between the two entities we hope it will be possible to further our knowledge of these structures and their impact on the reception, but also on the production of the works they present. Although this proposal is being initiated by a commercial space, not all the works presented will be available for sale. The works will be exhibited for their reflexive value rather than for their strict mercantile value.

Artists

The artists in this exhibition are Itziar Barrio (born in Bilbao, Spain, lives and works in New York), Sarah Greig (lives and works in Montréal), Kim Waldron (born in Montréal, lives and works in Montréal) and Group Material (founded in New York from 1979 to 1996)

ElectroClass


ElectroClass is an audiovisual project by artist Maria Ruido produced by consonni, taking the shape of a film comprising 7 chapters, based on a notion of the televisual stripping down of ETB in collision with other audiovisual materials. ElectroClass is a film about the work imaginaries shaped by Basque autonomous television (ETB) within the Spanish State since the 1980s. Taking the ETB archive material as the starting point and the city of Bilbao as a concrete case study, ElectroClass explores the collapse of the traditional concept of the working class, the changes in our work conditions from industrial capitalism to cognitive capitalism and outsourcing, and the radical transformation of the city "polis" within the "Bilbao trademark”.

To talk about its projects and those currently underway, such as ENPAP (European Network for Public Art Producers) and a research project about the concept of production: “Bird and ornithologist at the same time”.

The presentation takes place in between the personal and the public, the professional and the casual, the intimate and the strange, the extraordinary and the usual – a conversation about ways of working; the conditions of contemporary art in different contexts; communication with the artists; curating vs producing;  the political and the public in contemporary art practices.

The presentation of consonni will also be celebrated with some Basque and Spanish food.

consonni takes this opportunity of being in Stockholm to talk with some of consonni’s usual accomplices living in the city, such as Marti Manen (freelance curator and art critic) and Stella d'Ailly (director of Mossutställningar). 

 

Iaspis is the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s international programme for professional artists within visual arts, design, crafts and architecture. Our mission is to nurture contacts between artists in Sweden and actors on the international arena and thus contribute to artistic development and improved working conditions.

María Mur Dean (consonni) moderates a panel discussion on contemporary art and production: “Bird and ornhitologist at the same time”. With the participation of Cabello / Carceller, Tere Badia (Hangar), Carles Guerra (MACBA) and Juan Jose Martin Andres & Alba b Boïls Braza (Otro Espacio / Sin Espacio). 

 

The needs of contemporary artists and the complexity of their works require speaking in terms of production. Art producers and art centres emerge, galleries and museums assume these tasks; much is published on production, highlighting or undermining its importance, and not talking about the same thing. This round table triggers an encounter between different agents of the Spanish art system: from the artistic practice, the production platforms, the museum institution, the art critique, the art markets... How do production and exhibition co-exist? Is a political position inherent to the concept of production? Can we speak of production without acknowledging its modes and conditions? And without taking into account the context? Does the term production favour the understanding of culture as a resource?

 

 WHAT ABOUT PRODUCTION? arises from the desire of Screen from Barcelona to open a space for reflection to examine collectively professional concerns and challenges regarding the production of films and videos by artists who have been identified at different levels. WHAT ABOUT PRODUCTION? meets in Barcelona distinguished professionals with diverse and complementary experience in the field of audiovisual production, in order to discuss the greatest variety of forms, structures and models of visual art production.

 

Articulated in six discussion panels curated by its respective moderators, the professional forum for discussion aims to review different platforms and production strategies, identify challenges and outline future prospects by sharing the experiences of the participants. The different tables have been curated and moderated by Bartomeu Marí (Director of MACBA), Luis Miñarro (Director of film producer Eddie Saeta), Mark Coetzee (Director of PUMAVision and chief curator PUMACreative), Davide Quadrio (Director Art and founder of Asia Hub), Maria Ruido (artist and professor at the University of Barcelona) and María Mur Dean (Director of Consonni, Bilbao).

Processes immaterial production of contemporary art.
Master Artistic Production and Research.

University of Barcelona

The figure of the production hardly exists as a mediating agent in an unstructured system of art. And yet, paradoxically, the word production is taking a leading role in art, but not always in the intangible sense consonni claimed, and rarely as praxis and reflection to the same time. During the workshop, we undressed the work processes involving the immaterial production, understood as a process of communication.

During the workshop, we undressed the work processes involving the immaterial production, understood as a process of communication. Communication in the work team, with the artists, with society, with institutions, with the local context, with the art world, or even conscious isolation and silence...


Taking as guiding these processes, we show some concrete projects that exemplify what we speak: from Exercises in the north side, developed with Ibon Aramberri, Stay inside and close the windows, with Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum, Little Frank and his carp of Andrea Frasser, all produced by consonni.

The words structures, networks and collectives are separated by hyphens in the title; they are ideas which, in principle, have nothing in common, but their broad semantic fields conjure up images and lead us to ask questions about their internal connections and their true meaning in our sphere of work.

The structures of the artistic institution have become complex, in view of the fact that the circumstances relating to production have developed towards new territories far beyond the scope of the different disciplines. It is no longer possible to understand production unrelated to a new critical environment that reveals how work, politics and art coincide in the same attitude.

The progressive inflation of the idea of network makes us wonder to what extent it affects our creative project and our life. It would seem that negotiating the creative anxiety arising from the fascination with new technological possibilities is indispensable for recovering “the lost interval”.

Therefore, collective work, as a fundamental element of a new concept of production, of a revised notion of author, of a flexible concept of subjectivity and of an intellectually active network questions the individualistic logic promoted by today’s society, which is most explicitly reflected in art markets.

The other is to determine through discussion what characteristics and conditioning factors are required of spaces for visual arts. The debate is therefore an invitation to take part in a project for a visual arts space to be constituted on the basis of activities such as this one.

The idea underlying these working seminars is that lost time cannot be made up by emulating the audience education processes implemented by major institutions in recent years, but rather by projecting strategies for the future that link cultural and environmental values.

The speakers in the debate on "Art in a Future Situation" will present to the audience a range of specialist, institutional and collective practices that may serve to inspire work immediately in certain directions. The debating sessions open to the public will help generate a working agenda that can be assumed by a space devoted to the visual arts.

With Carles Guerra as commissioner and Dziga as producer, the event will feature Manuel Olveira, Mizien (Jorge Mestre & Ivan Bercedo), Franck Larcade, Georges Yúdice, El sueño colectivo (Montse Romani, María Ruido & Virginia Villaplana), Perejaume and Marta Gili.

Given the nature of its activities and its conceptual orientation, consonni does not normally participate at shows, fairs and exhibitions.
How can you exhibit a structure/organisation whose activities ignore the exhibition format?.

While galleries exhibit works of art and represent artists, consonni works with the artists, representing specific projects. consonni's participation at FAIR was therefore exceptional and represented a challenge. The benefits consisted of the media impact and the dissemination of consonni's image.

consonni was invited to participate in a framework of reflection on the structural changes in the visual arts in the transition towards a new culture, seeking to determine the new emerging profile of art.

Today's prevailing artistic horizon at present was established in the 1970s. The proposals of this trend are being creatively extended but at the same time we are witnessing a transition to something new. This new situation is mainly the result of the increasing contamination of art by technology. Through the spectacular development of electronic and digital media, we are headed towards a cultural horizon that will inevitably be different, in which art will have to enter new territories and tackle qualitatively different media and materials.

Participants: Bruno Corà (director of the Pecci Museum in Prato); Meneen Gras Balaguer (exhibition curator); Miguel Angel Ramos (lecturer in Aesthetics and Art Theory at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid); Carsten Ahrens (subdirector of Kestner Gesellschaft, Hannover); Joel Savary (Advisor on visual arts for the Regional Office of Cultural Affairs of Aquitaine); Franck Larcade (director of consonni); Pedro Pizarro (Director of the Fundación Pablo Ruiz Picasso, Malaga); Liliana Albertazzi (exhibition curator); Santiago Eraso (Director of Arteleku, San Sebastian) and Javier Maderuelo (lecturer in aesthetics at the University of Alcalá de Henares).
