LaPublika.

LaPublika is an artistic research laboratory on public sphere. It is a programme of activities concerning the way artistic practices construct the public sphere. We understand public sphere to be spaces considered to be public (the street, the square, the city), such as the internet or the communications media, and the mechanisms with which we participate in managing what is common (language, rites, norms, the aesthetic of collective processes). At a time when new social and civic paradigms are arising, LaPublika seeks to provide a framework of work and reflection upon those processes.

Focussed on the languages of art, LaPublika also deals with other fields of knowledge and particularly the social sciences, town planning, forms of pedagogy and feminism. The gender perspective and critical pedagogies, both regulated and informal, thread through the entire programme. In addition to the presence-based programme, all the activities have their version in podcast format on LaPublika’s radio-web, the central hub of the project, which is also backed up by programming involving interviews, radio spots and sound pieces.

For further information about the project, read ‘Public sphere and artistic practices: notes for a working framework’ written by consonni, PDF.

LaPublika is a project directed and coordinated by consonni, produced by Donostia-San Sebastian 2016, European Capital of Culture and Tabakalera International Centre for Contemporary Culture with the collaboration of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UPV/EHU, Azkuna Zentroa and Dabadaba and the support of Hotel Silken Amara Plaza, Bilbao Ekintza, EHUKultura (Directorate of Event Programming and University Promotion Bizkaia, UPV/EHU) and the Regional Council of Bizkaia.
