AdeC Lab

Mobile Laboratory for Audiovisual Experimentation and Learning

What Do We Do?

We work with diverse groups of participants without prior experience with audiovisual creation and who amongst themselves, have social and geographic characteristics in common. They participate in a dynamic process in which they learn to use audiovisual language in a creative and apply it to their personal stories. Using the narration of everyday dynamics as a starting point, they produce a collaborative, experimental video work based on the concept of Alma de Casa (the soul of the home), gender roles and how the public sphere is built from the private experience. The result of the labs is an ongoing collection of video works.

We use artistic processes as a language that offers the possibility for expression and creation. We encourage reflection on the social and family context of those who participate, allowing them to analyse their own environments from a more critical perspective. We share audiovisual techniques to enable the realisation of works with an artistic character, but we also offer them as practical tools for use in their everyday personal and professional lives.

How Do We Do It?

The Collection

The Collection is an ongoing video library of the works that emerge from the collaborative processes in our in-person laboratories.

What our Almas de Casa have to say…

  • Deciding to work with you was a good decision, I didn't really know what to expect, I thought it would just be something to fill the time. It wasn't. I discovered myself and we discovered ourselves together, we shared spaces and revived them. I learned to work as part of a team and I realised the importance of inhabiting a body and a place in this concrete jungle.

  • The laboratory really made me think about the role I have in my own home. On top of that I learnt how to make amazing videos in a really fun way!
