Prólogo Laboratorio Esfera Pública

Conversation between Magdalena Malm and María Mur Dean

Magdalena Malm, as director of Public Art Agency Sweden, and María Mur Dean, as director of consonni, will converse on the subject of artistic production in relation with construction of the public. Both participants, backed by their respective practices and contexts, will deal with issues connected with their experience of producing art projects. Both Public Art Agency Sweden and consonni are associates of the ENPAP network.


The Public Sphere Laboratory is a space for conducting research, experiments and production of an artistic, reflective, technical and/or theoretical nature around the construction of public sphere through artistic practices. Taking up positions in relation with discourses on public art and presenting the city as a scenario for experimentation and interdisciplinary investigation. We want to recover age-old debates about artistic intervention in (public) space and its aesthetic representation, and debate around the public status of art works. 

The PS Laboratory is a project directed by consonni within the Donostia/San Sebastián, Capital Europea de la Cultura 2016 programme with the support and collaboration of TabakaleraUPV/EHU, ENPAP (European Network of Public Art Producers) and also of Public Art Agency Sweden (Sweden). A project that will run during 2015 and 2016.
