Hangar develops open and copyleft tools and make them available for projects, processes, and interdisciplinary and artistic research communities. These tools can be theoretical or technological and they answer to common problems or questions of one or several collectives. They are developed under a collaborative, open and on process approach which makes possible the transfer of the generated knowledge.

The research explores methodological possibilities in the field of cultural and creative production as well as in militant research, based on the contamination of disciplines and practices. The project aims to "systematize" (the word is uncomfortable and imprecise) methodologies, procedures and scripts that do not have legitimacy or recognition and are not part of the traditional sciences (hard or social).
OMS is a project that aims to study the relationships that occur between artistic and design research methodologies, the construction practices of "electronic and digital craftsmanship" and technological innovation processes. To do this, the project looks for case studies (Hangar is one of them) to develop an ethnographic fieldwork during which it is possible to study a specific community and the artifacts that this community produces.
The project studies artists who build and create musical instruments and share:
- Common areas of work, activities and work space.
This research proposes an account that moves from the scientific laboratory to the "new" laboratories, from the scientific experiments to the collective experimentation, and from the forms of documentation proper to scientific experimental culture to the forms of registration of experimentation in art and design. It aims to think about how to attend practices between art and design that happen in "laboratories" that exist outside scientific disciplines and academic regulations.
The protocol document for interdisciplinary research aims to provide useful references and guidelines for institutions, funding bodies, individual researchers and interdisciplinary research groups. The document takes into account a wide number of experiences and visions on interdisciplinary work. It is an open document under ongoing reviewing and discussion.
