Bombas Gens launches the digital publication Energy = Yes! Quality = No! (Critical Workshop), a book conceptualised and designed by Thomas Hirschhorn, which documents the different phases, methodology, process and development of the homonym critical workshop that the artist carried out at Bombas Gens from 27 October to 21 November 2021.

This publication includes documentary material of the preparatory phases, Fieldworks and sessions of the workshop, as well as texts by Thomas Hirschhorn and Sandra Guimarães (artistic director of the art centre and curator of the project), together with an extensive list of testimonies of the participants describing their experiences within the activity, among other resources. This chronological document captures the complexity, energy and dynamic unfolding of Hirschhorn’s first “Presence and Production” work in Spain.
