Space of possibles – El Prat de Llobregat

Intervention in public space.

El Prat de Llobregat,

“Space of possibles”* consists of a sound installation based on a compilation of women’s voices with the aim of reclaiming public sphere in the public space of El Prat de Llobregat.

The audio of the installation is the result of a fieldwork research, which consisted in several meetings with 33 women.  We tried to include variety of women that live in the city taking into account factors such as sex, class, age, socioeconomic and political status, religious and ethnic pluralism.

* The tittle “Space of possibles” [l’espace des possibles] is a concept developed by French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu. He argues that every position taken is defined in relation to the “Space of possibles“ and that one is always surprised to see how much people’s wills adjust to their possibilities.
