This publication contains the projects shown at the exhibition Catalysts. Art, Education, Territory, presented in Arts Santa Monica (23.12.2010-03.04.2011) and co-produced together with ACVIC. This publication brings together the texts and works of Santiago Cirugeda, Amasté, Jordi Canudas, Josep-Maria Martín, Luca Giocolli, Sinapsis, Tanit Plana, Laia Solé, Democracia and Ramon Parramon. It is a set of art projects and participatory processes which posit a direct relationship with a particular local context. These proposals integrate three essential components, relating and interacting among themselves, to varying degrees: they are artistic practices, they promote educational activities and are deployed, without sacrificing a social, politic and critical reflection, in a specific area or context.

Reversible Actions. Art, education, territory
Reversible Actions. Art, education, territory is a publication gathering different activities organised by ACVic. Centre d'Arts Contemporànies, between November 2008 and December 2009. It contains a range of different artistic practices used in projects and by collectives and institutions.
The concept of "reversible actions" refers to the notion of reversibility as a condition in which all the elements involved show different degrees of reciprocal dependence. The elements in this case are artistic practices that affect social space through the deployment of educational actions. The texts and the projects introduced in this book talk about reversible actions produced in specific local contexts, proposing different answers to the same question : How can we link art, education and territory to plan projects able to innovate the design of cultural policies?

El Relat de l'Art
El relat de l’art (“The Narration of Art”)
This book was published on the occasion of the edition of ‘QUAM. El relat de l’art’ in 2009, directed by Andrés Hispano and Félix Pérez-Hita.
QUAM 2009 took place between Montesquiu and Vic from 4th July to 10th July 2009.
“’THE NARRATION OF ART’ has been devised as a real-time reflection on an unresolved situation, on the reluctance to reconsider, broaden and update the archetype of artist, to know how to sell the variety and flexibility that today characterises the condition of artist. This reflection has placed particular emphasis on the responsibility taken by fiction and documentary films shown on the screen, and especially on the television screen, where utopian productions, conceived from the point of view that television is the ideal medium for conveying the complexity of the contemporary world, have failed again and again.” Andrés Hispano
