chic&basic collaborates with the DOCfield>16 festival

chic&basic shows its commitment to the world of images by collaborating with the Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Festival DOCfield>16, an event organised by the Photographic Social Vision foundation.

In this year's edition the festival included the artistic direction of Greek writer, teacher, and curator Natasha Christia, who under the title "Europe: Lost in Translation" set out to give a broader vision and knowledge to everyone included in the identity crisis that Europe was suffering.

"Who are we? Who were we? Who do we want to be?”
The contemporary situation of coexistence of countries with such disparate socio-economic situations and such different cultures raised several questions that were intended to be resolved through the documentary photography that makes up DOCfield>16. The refugee crisis, nationalism, xenophobia, and European differentiation between the countries of the north and the south are just some of the issues that through exhibitions, screenings, workshops, and other activities serve to try to understand where the thinking of the old continent is headed to, which is very different from what it originally was.

At chic&basic we were delighted to open our doors to Natasha Christia and artists from other editions so that they could expand our minds with their words and visuals.

chic&basic was awarded the Photolover 2016 distinction, granted by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation.

chic&basic once again stood in the forefront of the Catalan capital’s artistic sector, thanks to the collaboration of its hotels in Barcelona in events such as the World Press Photo and the DOCfield chic&Basic Festival, with a recognition that rewards its efforts to present photography to all audiences, an artistic discipline as beautiful as it is full of possibilities.


chic&basic converted itself into an exhibition space to give voice to the third edition of the Art Photo BCN festival, an initiative of the Art Deal Project gallery that brings photographic creation to all kinds of audiences. chic&basic became the stage where 20 photographers exhibited and explained their works to a professional jury from the art sector.


chic&basic hosted the second edition of Art Photo Bcn. A hybrid event where, in addition to discovering the latest photography by emerging artists, conferences, workshops, and courses were held for the general and specialised public.


Project led by Silvia Prada. This stirring artist created a series of photographs for our chic&basic Born hotel. For this she chose boys and girls on the street and locked them in a hotel room to "play" while she photographed them. The photographs were taken in the rooms as well as in the restaurant and common areas.
