Concomitentes is the Spanish version of the French Nouveaux Commanditaires
The underlying methodology of Concomitentes was developed by the artist François Hers in 1990, and has had an enormous social and cultural impact wherever it has been implemented. Over the past 25 years, it has given rise to more than 500 projects in various European countries. Like Concomitentes, there are other initiatives working along similar lines at the European level. Each has its own name and a modus operandi attuned to its context, but they are all governed by the same methodology: the protocol designed by François Hers.
Nouveaux Commanditaires, the platform through which the French, Belgian, and Swiss initiatives operate, was launched in 1990. In 2001 and 2007, the project also started to materialise in Italy and Germany. Our intention is to establish Concomitentes as the Spanish benchmark for these kinds of projects. As part of the process, we are in regular contact with these sister organisations in other European regions, sharing ideas and processes.
