GRAF brings you the programme of contemporary art in Catalonia. The agenda that combines all agendas.


MACBA’s Programme of Independent Studies is a laboratory for reflection and practice, a place of experimentation with new forms of knowledge production whose fundamental objective is to mobilise critical thinking at the intersection between artistic practices, social sciences, and political and institutional interventions. The next edition will reinforce some of the approaches and methodologies tested in recent editions in order to activate new forms of political imagination and configure new scenarios of critical resistance. In addition to the classes, the programme is organised around workshops that aim to initiate concrete research projects, both collective and individual, and other formats open to the public in the form of international seminars, monographic courses and lectures. The programme understands study as a collective practice and for this it uses the tools of critical theory, artistic research, cultural materialism, feminist and queer practices and thought,and decolonial criticism.

The academic directors are Lucía EgañaMarcelo ExpósitoMarina GarcésDora GarcíaPablo Martínez and Jaime Vindel.

Academic coordination: Myriam Rubio

Final information about the programme and faculty will be published throughout the month of September 2018.
