MITO is an artist collective focused on activating the unconscious of a group when in contact with a work of art, through performances on exhibition spaces. MITO is a device and a machine generating myths. It proposes an imaginative transformation of the world through fiction. It creates myths from works of art, which are not metaphors nor regressions but creative constructions of new subjectivities oriented towards the future: They work as counter-knowledge against established knowledge. MITO is a collective creation process as the attendants participate in its own activation/creation: Participants send their ideas through their own mobile devices and they get integrated into MITO. Thus, MYTH becomes a new work of art.

 

The members of mito are:

Ana Maria Alvarez

(Neiva, Colombia, 1976)

Before devoting herself to writing about her experience on living and perceiving the spaces she perambulates, Ana Maria lived in Recife, Brazil), studied architecture in Bogota (Colombia), and got a masters degree on Urbanism in Barcelona (Spain). From the year 2000, she has accumulated a vast international professional experience and has become an extremely curious researcher. She has written several books about architecture and design and writes periodically for publications based on Colombia and the United States. Currently, Ana Maria is the Communications Manager at Pinearq, an award-winning international architecture studio, and is the editor-in-chief of the academic journal Dearte.

Enrique studied Hispanic philology, communication and performing arts. He started his trajectory with a public art project in New York’s five boroughs, which then has landed in more than 50 cities in all continents. His artworks and his performances are shown in Europe, Asia or America: at the Surface Conversion Project in New York City, with artists such as Marina Abramovic and Juergen Teller; at Miami’s Art-Basel Pinta, where he performed Word Portraits of prestigious international collectors like Jorge Perez (from the Perez Art Museum Miami), Tanya Capriles de Brillembourg (Saludarte Foundation), Solita Cohen and Angela Missoni; at Istambul Biennial; at the CCE Miami; at Dora Garcia’s Café de las Voces, the Fundacio Brossa or the Vipper Room by Absolut Art. Enrique has made word portraits to artists like Bruce LaBruce, Antoni Muntadas and Pere Portabella. His art project gravitates around “Reality is Spam”, his motto, which gains a special technical and linguistic sense in the actual Internet boom, with all the platforms, media and devices proliferating –transfiguring, in the end, communication between people.

 

Quim Bonastra

(Lleida, Spain, 1973)

PhD in Human Geography of the Universidad de Barcelona, Quim is a professor at Universidad de Lleida (UdL). His research covers topics related to control spaces from different perspectives: the historical, the geographic, the educational and the artistic. He has published several books, articles and chapters about these subjects. Quim is a member of UdL’s Espai Hibrid, dedicated to develop courses and to investigate about learning through art. Recently, he curates contemporary art exhibitions related to cartography and space.

Joan has a bachelor’s degree in Education, is specialized in musical teaching and photography, and he is now training in artistic research. His research field focuses on two centres: the first one rotates around the territory, the landscape and their relationships with individual and collective identities. The other core is established on the relationship between music and images, on how the two of them contradict and complement at the same time. These explorations find form as an artistic project with photography, in its most wide definition, as the essence of his production.
