Towards an archive of the historical memory of the social struggles and vindications of the ‘mad’ movement.

The project seeks to retrieve the intangible heritage generated by the social struggles and the associative movement of people with mental health diagnoses in Catalonia

An archive brings together testimonies, images, audiovisual and sound archives, and other documents, related to the so-called "mad movement" in Catalonia. 

The project is in the line of "mad studies" and seeks to generate spaces of recognition and visibility of the social struggles in this area based on the contributions and reflections of the protagonists themselves.

The aim of the project is to contribute to creating a historical archive that will make it possible to determine and recognise the trajectories, obstacles, tensions, assaults and possible horizons of the movement.
