Interacciones urbano_rural -
Interacciones urbano_rural is the second edition of a collaborative project between the residence centers Terra UNA (Brazil), Residencia en la Tierra (Colombia) and CENTRO RURAL DE ARTE (Argentina). The three spaces have the peculiarity of working in rural areas, although under very different socio-geographical conditions. This edition adds CRAC Valparaiso (Chile), which coordinates a research on work processes that occur in this context and in relation to urban processes.
This project happens inside the frame of residencias_en_red [Latin America], sponsored by AECID and Iberescena.
Interacciones urbano_rural provides periods of residence in Terra UNA (Brazil), Residencia en la Tierra (Colombia) and CENTRO RURAL DE ARTE(Argentina). Authorial projects are accepted within the field of contemporary art contemplating transdisciplinarity between languages and different areas of knowledge (visual arts, architecture, dance, film, music, theater, etc..). The second part of the residence will be held in Valparaiso CRAC systematizing experiences and developing a collective publication.
Interacciones urbano_rural is particularly interested in local roots. Thus suggesting the involvement of creative projects in specific contexts. It is proposed to investigate the various relationships between urban and rural. The invitation is to wonder whether the territorial relocation from the urban to the rural context takes on the issues that are present in the territories.That is, how art practices and contemporary thought address this dialectic, considering how, coming from different contexts, the imaginary is constructed in a way that can be shared and on the other hand fugue spaces to new ways of approaching critically these contexts.
Full and patial grants are available, covering different costs (incl. travel costs).
Applications accepted until 16 May.
