School Poeta Maragall

This is the sixth time the Poeta Maragall school (L’Eixample) has participated in iN RESiDENCE. Previously, Xavier Bobés, L'Automàtica, Josep Pedrals, Antoni Abad and Raquel Friera and Xavier Bassas have developed creation processes here. In this new twelfth edition, they participate once again with a group of students from 4th ESO.


The Institut Poeta Maragall (Antiga Esquerra de l’Eixample) was the first mixed secondary school in Barcelona and was also the first in the city to offer post-compulsory secondary education taught as evening classes (1955). Created in 1932 at the height of the Second Republic, its seed was the pre-existing Institut Infanta María Cristina for girls. Its current building dates from 1967. The art education offered in the sixth form at the Institut Poeta Maragall includes the visual arts, image and design, the performing arts, music and dance.
