PLAZO DE POSTULACIÓN ENTRE 23 DE MARZO Y 25 DE MAYO 2018

GIAP (Grupo de Investigación en Arte y Política conformado por Natalia Arcos y Alessandro Zagato) junto a Tj Demos (co director invitado) llaman a participar de la convocatoria para la Residencia “Ecología creativa y Estética de la autonomía”, dirigida a artistas e investigadores del arte de todo el mundo.

La residencia se llevará a cabo en CASA GIAP, ubicada en San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, México, por un período de 13 días / del 17 al 29 de julio 2018.

La invitación es para artistas e investigadores que quieran trabajar tópicos relacionados al arte, medio ambiente y ecología, en el marco de las ideas de autonomía inspiradas por el Movimiento Zapatista. Se trabajará en sesiones de reflexión y práctica sobre la estética y la política de la justicia ambiental radical, en un contexto como el de Chiapas donde el medio ambiente existe en la intersección de la naturaleza floreciente, la explotación capitalista, el extractivismo, las economías anticapitalistas, la resistencia y la construcción creativa de otro mundo.

La residencia tendrá sesiones de trabajo bajo la guía de TJ Demos y GIAP, visitas a galerías y artistas locales, a caracoles zapatistas y otras experiencias en la región de Chiapas. Es probable que la residencia coincida con la 3era versión del Festival Zapatista de Arte, “Comparte”. En caso de ser así, se incluirá la participación en dicho evento.

La residencia ofrece además: 15 noches de alojamiento en habitaciones privadas o compartidas, desayunos, uso de cocina, wifi en todas las áreas, acceso a la mediateca de consulta, taller de trabajo para producción de obra, cafetería, terraza y patio, en una casa de origen colonial en pleno corazón de San Cristóbal de las Casas. También considera traslado a las actividades cuando sea necesario.

Para postular, por favor envíe un email a correogiap@gmail.com, adjuntando su CV, descripción breve de su trabajo y un párrafo de por qué considera importante participar de esta residencia. El deadline es el 25 de mayo de 2018. 

El cupo máximo es de 10 personas.

El costo de participación y el pasaje aéreo deben ser cubiertos por cada artista/investigador. Podemos enviar cartas de invitación, certificado de participación y facturas de pago, si lo necesita para sus gestiones.

Habrá un artista indígena de Chiapas becado 100% por GIAP.

Residents will participate in theoretical and practical sessions on the aesthetics and politics of radical environmental justice, drawing from and interacting with a context like Chiapas where the “environment” exists at the intersection of flourishing nature, capitalist exploitation, extraction, anti-capitalist economies, resistance, and the creative construction of another world.

The residency will consist in working sessions supervised By TJ Demos and GIAP, visits to local galleries, and meetings with local artists, visits to Zapatista caracoles, and other experiences in the region. The event is likely to coincide with the 3rd edition of the Zapatista Festival of Art, “CompArte por la Humanidad”. If this is the case, the residence will include participation in this event.
