from june 27th to july 16th, i’ll be integrating a group of artists and researchers invited for the residence phronesis criolla, proposed by the demolición/construcción project, in córdoba, argentina. leaded by graciela de oliveira and soledad sanchez, the project proposes a discussion between contemporary art and politics, starting from the question of what can be built from what can be considered (at least at some level) destructive.
the residence proposes to take la perla, a facility used as a center of political oppression and torture during the dictatorship period in the country (declared a memorial in 2007), as an object of investigation and as an atelier.
i’ll be posting here some material as part of the documentation of the process of whatever comes up during the experience. i’m also intending on posting a text that will indicate some of the principles i’m using as a platform for the creation process.
also, during this period in córdoba, i’ll probably be participating on one or two workshops, which i will also be announcing and documenting here, so stay tuned.
special thanks to graciela de oliveira and soledad sánchez for the opportunity!
