HALF GRANTS AVAILABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN:
CARVING OUT THE SPACES FOR OUR COMMONED LIFE: A TRAINING GROUND
14/ 18 November, 2016 (bi-weekly module) – Cittadellarte (IT), City in the Making (NL)
STEALTH.unlimited (Ana Džokić and Marc Neelen) with Erik Jutten and Piet Vollaard
What role do artists play in the creation of new mutualism economic systems?
The double-module ’Carving Out the Spaces for Our Commoned Life: A Training Ground’ takes different economic principles and workings at its core. In the two weeks we will explore whether we, as artists, designers or cultural practitioners can envision a novel mutually supportive economic ’space’ for our lives and work. A daunting task, to which aid we will call some of the forerunners that have already started the transition. But equally a formidable challenge that demands we break down some of the assumptions and workings concerning the economy, delve into areas we usually experience as ’outsiders’ and start re-creating them on our terms. Money, debt, insurance, time, services – to name a few.
The module consists of a five-day line of activities at Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto (Biella, from 14th to 18th of November, 2016), and a subsequent five-day line of activities at the Stoking House of City in the Making (Rotterdam, from 21st to 25th of November, 2016).
ELAPSING TIME IN EXPANDED ARTWORK. PRACTICES OF THE UNCONSCIOUS THROUGH MEANS OF ACTIVISM
7/ 11 November, 2016
Aria Spinelli with Núria Güell
What is the relationship between emotion and activism?
Focusing on the relationship between emotion and activism, this one-week module looks at how practices of listening and wellbeing enhance collective sensibility within groups.
Spanish artist Núria Güell will not only be a guest on the module but also the initiator of an elapsed time-frame of research in which participants will deeply map the social and political implications of her recent work, La Feria de las Floras (2015).
This workshop ultimately aims at widening the horizon of on-going debates around the relationship between artistic practices and social movements by performing and embodying emotionality in a temporary and communal environment. It will touch upon (but not be limited to) concepts such as emancipation, female subjectivity, performance and protest.
