Loop is a platform dedicated to the study and the promotion of the moving image, created in 2003. Since its start it offers a careful selection of video-related contents from innovative perspectives. It develops projects with an international community of artists, curators, gallery owners, collectors and heads of institutions, with the aim of exploring the possibilities for video and film in the discourse of contemporary art.
The activities, paid and free, are spread throughout the city in museums, foundations, temporary exhibition centers, libraries and other spaces.

- Loop Festival (from November 14 to 24): exhibitions, screenings and live performances throughout Barcelona related to the creation of the moving image. Several spaces.
