The Otrascosas gallery, which belongs to the advertising agency Villarrosàs, offers Barcelona residents somewhere to enjoy all kinds of ideas. You must have passed by there loads of times: Via Laietana, 64. One of the floors of this building, Otrascosas, a gallery that accommodates every kind of artistic manifestation.
So far, during the two months and a bit it has been open to the public, Otrascosas has held concerts – like the one given by the Swedish band Billie The Vision & The Dancers – various screenings and an exhibition entitled Trochut + Apparatu Vol.1, which is on at the gallery until 16 December.
The aim, according to Marc Morro, who is in charge of Otrascosas, is to ‘run a weekly programme of talks, documentary screenings, concerts, theatre or whatever’. In other words, as he said himself: ‘That something happens every week.’
They happen and will happen because Otrascosas plans to revolutionise your Christmas festivities. From 17 December you will find an exhibition-market where you will be able to see and buy, at affordable prices, clothes produced by young designers.
At the same time, another part of the gallery will be dominated by a very special Christmas tree, made out of TV sets which will be showing different takes on Christmas.
The common feature of all of them is they have been recorded by all sorts of people using a digital camera which records with a texture similar to Super 8.
