BAR project develops a residency program in Barcelona that is conceived as a platform for the internationalization of the local context by making connections between artists and other agents of the sector from a critical and independent perspective. By an invitation process BAR welcomes international artists and curators to come to Barcelona during different periods and following different types of residencies.
BAR project is a platform which doesn’t have its own venue. Its residencies are possible thanks to different partners and collaborators, who are able to provide BAR’s residents with an apartment on the Eixample area of Barcelona, workshops, located in the production centre Fabra i Coats, and with material and economic budget. Furthermore, the different art centres within the city – institutional and independent- as well as a variety of agents of the local artistic scene, they all participate in the programs’s activities and visits.
The project’s driving force is the main focus of the platform’s priorities, that is to say,  the notion of hospitality. This exchange is being produced not only on a conceptual level but also at a practical level, allowing for collaborations at many different levels making possible projects within the arts context, like BAR itself, but also considering the economic sustainability that comes with it. The participating agents in the residency are hosted by BAR and its collaborators thus the project aims to breach its barriers through  hospitality itself.
BAR project’s residencies operate on an invitation system andeach year it gravitates around a general topic. During 2015 the focus was on artists and curators whose work research and essay different ways of living together in the world or alternative forms of community. During 2016 the curatorial program explores the politics of control of human behaviour. The selection-committee is composed by BAR project’s founding members. There are two type of residencies:

Residencies

These are 3-month residencies in which  artists and curators are invited to develop a specific project related to the city of Barcelona. The residency covers for transportation, accommodation, workshop and food expenses as well as for providing the artist with a production budget. During the residency there is a special emphasis on the exchange produced with the local context through the artists presentations of their work, studio visits, public events and several exchanges between artists and local agents. In the case of the curators, they are invited to develop a project in collaboration with BAR’s team over. This is a kind of residency that aims to further develop the residency program of BAR project, as well as to look for collaborations between international agents that could encourage it and thus create future collaborations within the fields of curating and research. At the end of each residency there is a public presentation of the artworks that have been produced  on a particular space that has been selected in order to suit the work its best.
