EL CONTRATO was a two-year project developed by Bulegoa z/b in collaboration with AzkunaZentroa (previously AlhóndigaBilbao). The project was developed in two phases: a reading group which ran from April 2013 to February 2014, and an exhibition which took place from October 2014 to January 2015. The exhibition was vertebrated around the themes examined in the reading group, and comprised works by around thirty artists, as well as a film programme, talks, performances, and a new reading group. The project aimed to reflect on the way in which contracts, tacit or explicit, determine practices and ways of doing, being and acting.
