Throughout the months of January-March 2021, Núria Gómez Gabriel has carried out her curatorial research project Iban oscuro por entre las sombras within the framework of the Encura V grant, organized by Hangar, La Casa Encendida and hablarenarte. A collective exploration device that has been deployed through three days of nightly coexistence with artists Ángela Millano and Blanca G. Terán (aka dj_Sônia), Raquel G.
#Allure ## (for allusions) is the public program carried out by María García Ruiz within the V Artistic Research Grant Fundación Banco Sabadell – Hangar.
Itinerant Actions is a research project investigating both the critical dialogue between art and geography through fieldwork and the geographies of artistic practice in the landscape, to develop new research models in peripatetic practice, itinerant working, outposts and databases. Fieldwork in artistic practice is an interesting new research strand, as preliminary thinking and making often goes undocumented or is edited-out from final work.

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).
TransPlant: Green is the New Red is a transdisciplinary project of plant / human / animal / machine hybridisation started by Quimera Rosa in 2016. It is both a bio-art project based on a human hybridisation / plant as well as a human trans-identity process > plant. The development of this project is based on the interaction between different axes that, through different bio-hacking practices, try to produce changes of subjectivity and deconstruct narratives that present the body as a single unit.
On Making Sounds (OMS) - Practices "of making", technological innovation, artistic research and sound artifacts
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:
Envirocomputing and its production of new ecological arrangements stretches far out beyond the lab –exploiting intensively the lively labours and frictions of nonhuman animals and organisms through ever-accelerating affective, semiotic and material practices. Our co-compositions/becoming-with both the internet and other digital informational networks and/or devices are ever more entangled strongly in our situated non-local “we”s.
