La Casa de Carlota is an advertising agency like many others: it’s based in Barcelona and produces campaigns for large multinationals, as well. But a detail makes it different from its competitors: many of its artists have Down syndrome or autism. Their condition, which so many see as a flaw, lies at the heart of the company’s success. Following Odile, Joan, Quim, Carlo, and Sophie, the artists of La Casa de Carlota, we’ll discover their unique approach to life, work and creativity.
