Public Art Calaf, Idensitat 1999-2000

This publication shows the works developed during the first edition of IDENSITAT called  Calaf Public Art, event that took place between 1999 and 2000. The project came into being in response to the idea of promoting interventions in public space with particular emphasis on the working process and the incorporation of aspects of reflection and debate.

All of these aspects were addressed with the same close attention from the outset. The way in which public space was approached was not so much as a common physical space, but as a asocial , ideological space. The space generated by the place on the basis of human interaction, confrontation an consensus, identification with the place an otherness, ideology, participation, the local community and the production of meaning in the context of the global, along with other topics which were dealt with from the viewpoint of representation or action linked to the public space.

This publication features the projects conceived in the town of Calaf in July 1999, three of which were carried out and presented publicly in may 2000. Also the dynamic generated by the touring exhibition has sparked off new moments of reflection and debate which are related in other publications: La Capella 2000. Catàleg de la temporada d’exposicions. Institut de Cultura. Ajuntament de Barcelona, 2001 and  Arte Público Calaf 99/00. Instituto de la Juventud. Madrid, 2001
