Bulegoa Z/B (Bilbao, Spain)
Open Call for Residency


Bulegoa zenbaki barik is an office for art and knowledge located in the Solokoetxe district of Bilbao. It is an initiative created around a shared interest in issues such as critical pedagogical practices, situated knowledge and collaborative methodologies; feminisms and the decolonial perspective; processes of historicization, cultural translation; and social transformation, and its relation to art.

Bulegoa z/b is a platform inspired by the desire to bridge the gap between practice and theory. Its aim is to build a space of sustained discourse and hybrid situations where debate, discussion and exchange of ideas can take place and artistic projects can be materialized. To make this possible, Bulegoa z/b organises seminars, presentations, screenings, performances, talks, conversations and other activities.

Members of Bulegoa z/b are: Beatriz Cavia, Miren Jaio and Leire Vergara. We founded the project in 2010 together with Isabel de Naverán, who worked with us until 2018. Silvia Coppola is in charge of production and Auria Etxeandia of communication, taking over from our previous collaborators, Jesús Arpal Moya, Alexi Hofer, Adriana Laespada, Andrea Rodrigo and Natalia Barberia. Abel Jaramillo, Daniel Aranda, Silvia Coppola and Sara Padilla Grimalt did their post-graduate internship at Bulegoa z/b.

Members of the Bulegoa z/b Board of Advisers are Elena Casado, Guadalupe Echevarría, Yaiza Hernández, Itziar Okariz and Ana Vujanović.
