Duae is a collective and collaborative platform based in Barcelona that operates in the field of contemporary visual research, founded in 2015 by Luna Coppola and Silvia Campidelli. Since 2016 is a resident artist and cultural enterprise at Fabra i Coats, Fabrica de Creacio.
The Collective develops projects and artistic research with a multidisciplinary and transversal approach, through the use of video, photography, new technology, drawing, cartography, sound, installations and combining an exchange of knowledge, collaborative dynamics, creativity and environmental issues that explore the intersections between: art, technology, ecology and science.
The working methodology that we use wants to activate processes of critical reflection, and generate connections between contemporary artistic practices and society, eliminating institutional boundaries with the intention of connecting educational, environmental, cultural, and territorial heritage issues.
Duae is known for working in various contexts with people from different backgrounds and with different professions, supporting a more inclusive, open and co-creative way of working. To this end, over the years, we have developed many methods and exercises based on storytelling, cartography, participatory processes, design thinking and shared experiences that stimulate the necessary creative and open conversations in these contexts.
Duae Collective is an independent project that collaborates and has the support of various public institutions, private foundations, museums and residency programs.
