FRONTIER | Cohort in Spanish
CLOSED-NO MORE VACANCIES

21.12.20 18.02.21

“The limits of my language are the limits of my world”.  L. Wittgenstein


“Together Apart” is a new international program that proposes a collaborative work and research format. Initially conceived in times of pandemic as a refuge for artistic practices, the program seeks to rethink residences in times of closed borders and restricted physical contact, supporting the international artistic and cultural community through the promotion of collective research and experimentation projects between and among trans-disciplinary.

This program has already been completed, with a great success, by 46 artists from around the world. During August-September 2020 we developed SHELTER, its first edition in English, with a group of participants from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Colombia, Croatia, the United States, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Norway and the Netherlands. During October-November 2020, NEST was a second edition in Spanish, which hosted artists from Argentina, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the United States, Mexico and Venezuela. Many of them have continued working in collaboratively projects after the end of the program while all have expanded their networks of contacts, leaving us very stimulating testimonies to continue with this activity.

ABOUT FRONTERA, the 3RD EDITION OF TOGETHER APART PROGRAM

This 4-week temporary shelter will accompany the participants in their artistic processes, demolishing real and imagined borders and providing the necessary knowledge to investigate, activate creativity and produce in these unusual circumstances. Artists will be able to work in collaboration with colleagues from different parts of the world. In addition, they will receive feedback and reviews from the directors, guest artists and curators of the program, as well as from the rest of the participants, improving their artistic skills and building personal and professional bonds.

FRONTIER appears here as a concept revisited in its multiple meanings. There are numerous types of borders that delimit infinite types of areas, which can be drawn for diverse reasons. Thus,  no border (geopolitical, artistic, personal, physical, social, etc.) can be defined by itself but in relation to both what remains inside as what is left outside.

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.
