Description:
22a, founded in 1995 in an industrial building in Poblenou, was a non-profit organisation formed by a group of artists and critics in order to promote contemporary art projects. In 2002, having left the industrial building in PobleNou, and latterly another space in Poblesec, 22a started the project Space Invaders. This last phase of the organisation was dedicated to revising the relationship between the art object and the institutional system of art, by producing artistic projects in unconventional art spaces, such as the activities planned in Pis Compartit (Shared Flat), an apartment in Ferran Street, or the public space interventions developed in the area of Ciutat Vella, such as B-27 Target del Gos, Futureland by Connie Mendoza, or Hangueando, Diaris amb potes de Raymond Chavez. In many cases, an advertising billboard at the top of the Ramblas in Barcelona functioned as a point of information for their respective actions.
