The Influencers (2004-ongoing)

The Influencers is an annual festival we curate, together with Bani, in Barcelona, Spain, at the CCCB and in various improbable locations around the city. The Influencers promotes controversial forms of art and guerrilla communication, presenting visionary projects that play with popular culture, infiltrate the mass media and transform everyday things into outlandish spectacles. Past speakers include: Trevor Paglen, Simon Denny, Jill Magid, Kenneth Goldsmith, Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi, David Horvitz, The Yes Men, Neue Slowenische Kunst, Critical Art Ensemble, Constant Dullaart, JR, Chim-Pom, Metahaven, Amalia Ulman and William Binney. Every year they contribute to reinventing the only festival with no medium, no message and no coherence.
