Jordi Ferreiro In residence
In his long-term research, artist Jordi Ferreiro is interested in exploring models of governance in art organisations. Combining this research and his interests in generating collaboration, self-governance and horizontality in organisational structures, Ferreiro will collaborate with Bergen Kunsthall’s youth group Unge Kunstkjennere (UKK). During August and September, they will together explore how an art institution can make space for plurality of voices, actions and forms of self-direction. And through a series of exploratory sessions, will create a set of proposals for how to do this inside the Kunsthall.

Jordi Ferreiro (Barcelona, Spain) is an artist and educator whose projects use strategies based on institutional mediation, performative participation, play and experimental educational movements to interfere in the relations between institutions, art and audiences. These have included interactive tours, collaborative workshops, performative conferences and listening experiments. His research into organisational models has developed recently through the collaborative project ‘como imaginar una musea?’ (how to imagine a feminist museum?) - an ongoing attempt to re-think the art institution from a feminist perspective, run on concepts of collaboration, hospitality and shared access. He co-founded Departamento Exoterico at MACBA, Barcelona - a research department self-directed by students from different universities under the motto “What would you like to learn? What can you teach?”. He has carried out projects in international institutions, including Z33, Belgium; TEOR/éTica, Costa Rica; MAC Bogotá Museum of Contemporary Art, Columbia; and in Spain MACBA Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art; CaixaForum and La Casa Encendida, Madrid.
