Applications Open: Residency at UNIDEE
Applications for a two-month long residency at UNIDEE – University of Ideas are now open. UNIDEE is a multifaceted platform offering an educational programme of residential modules - taking place both at Cittadellarte and at academic partners’ sites internationally - alongside a series of artists’ residency projects.
Based on interdisciplinary research, knowledge sharing and experience exchange, the programme fosters processes of cross-pollination to investigate the relationship between art and public sphere.
This year the modules offered as a part of the program are, Proposal for Schizoanalytical Seminar II: Title Forthcoming and Touch, Don’t Dominate.
Proposal for Schizoanalytical Seminar II: Title Forthcoming: The schizo-analytic module turns the context of the weeklong seminar at Cittadellarte into the set of a historical film being made in 2057, about a seminar set in the year 2017.
The participants of the module, together with the mentors, will enact a seminar while documenting it as a film. Thus participants engage the seminar in a double role, playing actors playing the part of participants, in this seminar. Similarly, the mentors will play the role of actors who play the role of mentors.
The hope is that the distancing and self-awareness of our selves, our time and the conditions of making this collective seminar / film will allow a different perception of our common condition to arise. Participants will take turns filming the seminar and performing in the film as will the mentors.
The film will be edited collectively and presented on the final day of the module.
Touch, Don’t Dominate: "Touch, Don’t Dominate" is configured as a time and work space to think about how to produce and think artistically aesthetics of cares and affects.
We are very affected by the discomfort produced by neo-liberal policies. Also, these policies have increased hatred and fear against some collectives. The dominant discourses from power tell us that hatred or fear respond to subjective and psychological logics, and do not respond to a determined social policy. However, this discourse generates a psychologization and privatization of the emotions that continue to perpetuate a strong social violence. These processes conceal the economic interests operating behind certain policies against certain subjects.
