Paula Bruna


Paula Bruna (Barcelona, 1978)

Her background starts from environmental science and ecology, and she has worked in scientific research, natural management and environmental policies. Later she graduated in fine arts. Both professions have converged in her artistic projects, in which she studies the interaction between society and its ecological environment. She is currently working on a narrative about the Anthropocene from a non-human point of view, using a combination of science, fiction, and art.

Paula carries out her artistic research on art and political ecology within the framework of the PhD program of Advanced Studies in Artistic Research at the University of Barcelona. The results of this research are shared in congresses, publications (BRAC, Ecología Política), workshops on art and ecology (Hangar, La Escocesa, Calafou, Center del Carme de Cultura Contemporània, UAB…) and events and exhibitions (Notes on Landscape (…), Kunstraum Lakeside, Austria; Després de la fi del món, CCCB; Aplec Saó; CAN Farrera). She was awarded the Guasch-Coranty Artistic Creation Grant 2018-19 and La Escocesa Research and Experimentation Grant 2019. She is an artist-in-residence at La Escocesa and was previously a short (2017) and long term (2018-2020) artist-in-residence at Hangar.


FASE + Dràcul·la

FASE is a place of work and meeting for artists, curators, researchers and for all those people whose work is related to artistic practices and contemporary thought. It was born as an independent and sustainable proposal for artistic practice with the aim of bringing together cultural agents who have the desire to seek other possibilities for growth and development. The project has ten production spaces for artists, six work tables and a multipurpose space of 60 m2 for the development of own activities and open to external collaborations.
In addition, FASE is also born with the need to continue the synergies derived from the work of some of the long-term residents at the Hangar.org research and production center. Paco Chanivet, Patricia Fernández, Marco Noris and Patricio Rivera are four of the artists from this center who migrate to FASE, joining the management of this initiative Blanca del Río, curator and Mercedes Pimiento, artist.

Dràcul·la is the house and workshop of Mònica Planes and Àlex Palacín and the name of the project that energizes as an extension of their extremities. They collaborate or accompany artists in the development of projects that stretch over time seeking to get closer and get to know different creative processes from a closer view.
During the last year, they have presented the exhibition Yoyo by Stephane Carpinelli, El número del gamer by Camille Orny and El Quadre que parla by Enric Farrés Duran. Currently, they accompany a project in process by Pol Olivé that will be presented in the coming months.
