Controversy limit/overflow

Micaela Muzi presented her project “Controversy limit/overflow” at the first ´aceNITE of 2019, ehich she produced during her residency at Fundación´ace.



Implementing geometry as a metaphor for social regime, I seek to delve into the biological, technological and social transversalities that interfere in the development of individuals’ subjectivity. Subjectivity constitutes the basis for existence and the content that defines us. It is a dynamic entity through which we think, dream, feel, desire and experiment the world around us. Is there a possibility for the development of subjectivity inside the current parameters of the social regime?

Geometric, precise and delimited figures, symbolize the morphology upon which social systems are structured and built. Do limits contain and give structure or on the contrary, do they restrict and generate alienation? Does the act of overflow present fluidity and a possibility for change or, on the contrary, does it condemn us to live in a schizophrenic fluidity? Does the split of the social regime develop into a fertile territory to cultivate an equilibrium, or, does it turn into an arid zone with irreparable fissures? This inquiry delves into the circumstantial clash between limit and overflow.

In our contemporaneity, the rise of the visual and the proliferation of images establish an era of visuality. In this way, technology becomes a key factor of the socio-cultural formation of individuals. Does the possibility to develop subjectivity exist inside the technological sphere we are immersed in? Can splits in the technological structure be generated to become fertile ground in the sphere of mass-media standardization spread by our screens? Does technology’s geometrical thinking and its cerebellum of data-storage plates limit individuals’ synapsis?

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
