José Luis De Vicente

Curator and cultural researcher

He investigates the current and future impact of social and technological innovation through artifacts, objects and narratives that explore emerging social and political scenarios. His projects are anti-disciplinary in nature and create contexts for collaboration and dialogue between the worlds of art, design, architecture, technology, science, activism and all their communities.

He is currently curator of Sónar+D, the Digital Culture and Creative Technologies Congress of the Sónar Festival in Barcelona. He is founder and co-director of Tentacular, a new festival of Critical Technologies and Digital Adventures at Matadero (Madrid), and a member of the programming teams of Luz BCN, the Barcelona Festival of Luminous Arts. He has also curated multiple exhibitions, in Spain and abroad, such as Big Bang Data y Después del fin del mundo, both at the Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB), Atmospheric Memory at the Manchester International Festival, Machine and Souls at the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid, Playtime: Game Mythologies at the Maison De Ailleurs in Switzerland, and others. Finally, he is a professor at the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC).
