The programming for Espai 10 began in 1978 and, after Espai 13 took over the activities of this space ten years later, has continued through to the present
day. After thirty-five years of work devoted to artistic experimentation and providing a space for emerging artists in the local and international scenes, the notable result has been quality and continuity, which, in turn, now exemplify a singular case study in the institutionalisation of contemporary art in Europe. This book is a compendium of the
stories of Espai 10 and Espai 13 that, presented along thematic lines, clearly illustrate the history of art, tastes and aesthetic tendencies, and institutions.
