Óscar Martín IN RESiDENCE at the School Juan Manuel Zafra


Oscar Martín Correa (Winterthur, Switzerland, 1977) is a Fine Arts graduate, specialising in Sculpture and New Media, from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV). He is an independent artist, researcher and programmer who works in the field of Algorithmic Poetry and the study of generative and chaotic systems, applied to the artistic context in various formats: sound art, installations and performance, always under the premise of DIY (do it yourself) and DIWO (do it with others). His artistic practice may be understood as a polyhedral knowledge device, in which art, science and technology flow together and hybridise in an unorthodox, critical and experimental approach. Martín was behind the experimental radio platform MetaminaFNR, and was the co-editor of Ursonate Fanzine, the magazine on aural culture and experimental music. He has carried out a number of workshops on open-source creation tools (FLOSS) and on generative systems and computer music. He is part of the Minipimer.tv group. He was also a resident artist at Barcelona's Hangar production centre from 2009 to 2014.

His work has been seen and heard in contemporary art centres and international festivals, including: Audiolab-Medialab Prado (Madrid), LABoral (Gijón), Ràdio del Museu Reina Sofía (Madrid), MOR Museu Oral de la Revolució - Macba (Barcelona), Festival Piksel (Norway), Festival de la Imatge de Manizales (Colombia), Festival Kiblix (Slovenia), Plataforme Intermedia (France), Festival Sonikas (Madrid), Hangar.org (Barcelona), Sónar (Barcelona), Zarata Fest (Bilbao), QO-2 (Belgium), NK project (Berlin).

School Juan Manuel Zafra


The Juan Manuel Zafra secondary school is taking part in the IN RESiDENCE programme for the fourth year running, with previous residencies from Laia Estruch, Mariona Moncunill and Mònica Planes. This time, the school is participating with a group of 4th year ESO students.


The Institut Juan Manuel Zafra (Camp de l’Arpa del Clot, Sant Martí) was founded in 1892 as an arts and crafts school. It is now a publicly-run school that offers compulsory and sixth-form secondary education to pupils in the El Clot catchment area and which supports the inclusion of contemporary creation in the classroom.
