The Unifiedfield / el campo unificado is an independent art space and artist-run organization focusing on the experimental aspects of sound, video and performance art. We observe the world as a network of interdependent connections and we understand artistic practice as a vehicle that can transform life, our relation with ourselves, society, and the natural world.

It previously occupied a traditional complex amongst rice fields in Yogyakarta (Indonesia), subsequently moving into a cave in Granada (Spain) before settling in an antique building nestled in Granada’s historic Moorish quarters, the Albayzín, where it ran an artist residency for three years. In 2013, The Unifiedfield initiated its Nomadic Artist-in-Residence Program in The Philippines and is currently working in collaboration with the Balud Art Network. Access to The Unifiedfield Nomadic Artist-in-Residence Program in The Philippines is open to all artists, filmmakers, musicians, writers and curators without restriction, but priority is given to artists working on environmental and relational, site-specific projects on the experimental and interdisciplinary fringes.

Since its inception in 2009, some of the primary interests of The Unifiedfield have been the production and diffusion of new interdisciplinary and non-commercial forms of art, together with the creation of artistic exchanges between Asia and Europe. In this time, it has organized monthly events, video art screenings and experimental music concerts at both its Yogyakarta and Granada spaces; initiated two Artist-In-Residence programmes; produced site-specific works and held clandestine interventions in public places; conducted workshops on performance and sound art; curated and exhibited at art institutions such as Nikolaj Kunsthallen (Copenhagen), the Museum Of Contemporary Art (Taipei), The Substation (Singapore), and the Singapore Art Museum; presented experimental music from Singapore at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao as part of a fringe festival; and produced The Future Sounds Of Folk, a project that attempts to use diverse musical traditions of Indonesia as a starting point for the development of new amalgams of experimental music, in partnership with Amsterdam-based institution STEIM, amongst others.

In this new stage we hope to establish alliances and partnerships with like-minded people and groups working towards the experimentation in the arts and the cultural and eco-social transformation.

The Unifiedfield / el campo unificado is about to launch its third residency program and the first edition of an annual arts festival in Castellar de la Frontera, Cádiz (Spain). In October – November 2017, four international artists will coincide in a beautiful Andalusian home at a medieval fortress in the heart of Los Alcornocales Natural Park. For this program, artists are invited to work out of their comfort zone to experiment with collaborative processes and ephemeral interventions in the village and the natural surroundings. * [More info soon].

The Unifiedfield / el campo unificado, founded by Marta Moreno Muñoz and Tara Transitory.

Marta Moreno Muñoz (Spain, 1978) is a performance and video artist with a background in experimental theatre and other time-based arts. Graduating in 2002 with a M.A in Fine Arts, her work has focused predominantly on “feminine” subjectivity, dissolution of the ego and the notion of pre-oedipal nostalgia in response to a patriarchal and undesirable reality. She is at present in a transitional stage, shifting towards the conceptualization of larger-scale projects exploring the complex interchange between performance art and the cinematic language.

Currently nomadic, she is working on personal art projects, researching for her PhD thesis “Art as an Experience of Dissolution of the Self” and directing The Unifiedfield; Marta Moreno has lived, produced and engaged in artistic works in Spain, UK, Turkey, India, The Netherlands, Indonesia, Singapore, The Philippines and exhibited internationally.
