Translocations is an art project that has been running since 2014 in various formats, dedicated to analysing artistic practices and local contexts through conferences, workshops, project archives and micro-interventions (art projects in public spaces). The project explores the identity of people and places in the Ciutat Vella area of Barcelona, namely Raval and the Gothic Quarter. It looks at aspects of contemporary mobility, such as tourism, migration and travelling, and the ways in which they affect the local area. In order to delve deeper into these ideas, the project also analyses the factors that limit and determine mobility, such as fear, insecurity, violence, inequality and social exclusion. As well as works created within the Translocations project, there will be work by other artists, including Ángela Bonadíes, Raquel Friera, Pep Dardanyà and Bouchra Khalili. Project Observatory is a unique look at current issues that will give locals and visitors alike a new outlook on the areas in question.
