Interfencia is an artistic group whose aim is the promotion and production of actions and ephemeral artistic interventions in public spaces. We demand these spaces as places of expression and social and artistic thinking.

Artists or collectives of any nationality can apply for this call in one or several of the following sections of the project: The objective of this call is the selection of projects of artistic intervention mainly in public spaces of Raval District and Montjuïc area in Barcelona. Only proposals including public space as a specific part of the artistic project -modifying it, questioning it, rethink it- will be accepted.

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.
We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
