1. CIAAV (Criticism and Ideology in Audiovisual Artificial Intelligence)

The "CIAV" project analyzes the use of artificial intelligence in educational audiovisual creation, seeking to evaluate its impact on student creativity and autonomy, as well as identify possible biases. A short film is planned to be created exclusively using AI tools in all stages of production, with the purpose of highlighting any ideological bias present in these tools. The ultimate goal is for students to acquire critical thinking by knowing and using these technologies.

2. SHORTPERFORM. – Performative and interdisciplinary methodologies around the deepfake image

It is proposed to develop an audiovisual piece that condenses the results of previous research, evaluating the knowledge acquired. This process is based on the improvisation of elements such as choreography, music and visual elements, which will be recorded and assembled into an audiovisual artistic work. Furthermore, the project arises from the interest generated in the group by artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and their application in the arts, specifically in the manipulation of artificial images. AI is integrated as work material and as a means to explore the imaginary implications of this technology.

3. Technology applied to the voice as a strategy for vocal expansion and
the inclution

The project seeks to address gender limitations in the performing arts, particularly vocal technique, which often restrict the diversity of identities. It proposes integrating technology into vocal practice as a way to expand expressive possibilities and promote a more inclusive pedagogy. An experimental workshop will be conducted to explore these practices with first and fourth grade students, followed by a survey evaluation.


This project seeks to analyze the arts as tools for inclusion and social change. Specifically, the issue of migration, so current in the XNUMXst century, is studied. TransmigrArts is a European project of which TAI It is an active participant along with 13 other institutions from 4 different countries.

5. DII (Dialectic of improvisation)

It seeks to integrate diverse artistic expressions such as improvised jazz, electroacoustic music and video art. Overcoming the dichotomy between accompaniment and soloist by creating a common grammar that guides the improvised creative flow. Each member of the group specializes in their area and shares knowledge to create horizontal dialogue strategies, far from hierarchies. Innovation lies in the coexistence of disciplines, where coherence is achieved through polysemic dialogue.

6. Ecofeminisms in contemporary Japanese cinema

From an ecofeminist perspective, we examine how cinema portrays the female migration process, highlighting how some films promote a return to traditional values ​​where nature is seen as a positive space of productivity for women, in contrast to the city. These films are presented as a solution to society's growing disconnection from nature, the challenges of an aging population and the low birth rate.

7. XNUMXst Century Experimental Classroom: Innovation strategies and resources
teacher for teacher training in competency learning

AEXP21 focuses on applying innovative teaching methodologies focused on competency learning in the artistic field. It seeks to reorient education towards the development of relevant competencies, sharing and experimenting with teaching innovation tools led by experts in different areas to improve collaborative and proactive learning.
