2021 - Exhibitions, Screenings, Performances, public talks
This lecture was the third of three open lectures that were connected to professor Dora Garcia’s course “COMRADE, how to build new institutions?”.
22nd June 2021 – Togetherness, community, commoning: radical perspectives in a dialogue with the Rome Charter – A conversation between the artistic collective Chto Delat, Théo-Mario Coppola and Cesare Pietroiusti with external voices from artistic practices
Organized by Azienda Speciale Palaexpo and UCLG Culture Committee
Video commentary to the installation “Slow orientation in Zapatism” – Chto Delat’s contribution to “And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?” includes a textile map and a film based on the collective’s interactions with the Zapatista Army of National Liberation while visiting the Mexican state of Chiapas. These works engage the recent past, the present, and also possible futures through mise-en-scénes that generate aesthetic experiments to test the possibilities of art, as a reality and dimension of its own, in extreme conditions. “And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?” 15/5 – 26/9 2021, Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier A joint exhibition with Wiener Festwochen, curated by Miguel A. López.
